Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: McKennie, Dest, and more


Weston McKennie returned to the field for Juventus, playing the final 32 minutes in a 2-0 defeat to Inter Milan on Sunday.

After missing a midweek win over Genoa as a precaution, McKennie came onto the pitch as a second-half substitute for Andrea Pirlo’s side, but couldn’t help the Old Lady avoid a road loss. Juventus did better in possession with McKennie on the pitch at the San Siro, while the midfielder himself completed 89% of his passes.

However, Juventus’ defeat sees them fall seven points behind both AC Milan and Inter Milan in the Serie A title race. McKennie’s return though is a major positive for Juventus, who now turn its attention to Wednesday’s SuperCoppa Italia Final vs. Napoli.

Sergino Dest got the start for Barcelona in the Spanish SuperCup Final, but did not end up on the winning side in a 3-2 extra time loss to Athletic Bilbao. Dest was substituted off in the 45th minute by manager Ronald Koeman and did not play a part in Barcelona’s eventual collapse. The U.S. Men’s National team defender made two recoveries and completed over 85% of his passes, but was replaced by Oscar Mingueza at halftime.

Matthew Hoppe made it back-to-back Bundesliga matches with a goal scored despite a loss to Eintracht Frankfurt. The American forward made it four goals scored in his last two league appearances, continuing his dream start to life in the starting lineup.

Elsewhere, Antonee Robinson was sent off in Fulham’s London Derby loss to Chelsea. Matt Olosunde helped Rotherham United to a road victory over Derby County while Josh Sargent played a part in Werder Bremen’s Bundesliga victory. Shaq Moore and Yunus Musah both played in Copa del Rey action. Mark McKenzie dressed for Genk and could be in the starting lineup soon following a suspension to Carlos Cuesta.

  1. Swansea fans seem to think the loan for Morris is done. Saw some fan made a series of clips to introduce him. He kept gushing on how good he was with his left foot. You do have to give Jordan credit for how much he’s improved in that part of his game.
