Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Ream, Weah, and more


Tim Ream has seen his playing time take a hit in Premier League play this season, but returned to Scott Parker’s lineup on Saturday to help Fulham advance in the English FA Cup.

Ream played 120 minutes for the Premier League side as Fulham downed London rivals QPR 2-0 away from home. It was Ream’s first start and overall club appearance since October 24th, as he helped Fulham extend its current unbeaten run to five matches in all competitions. The U.S. Men’s National Team veteran completed the most passes in the match with 79 and finished with a passing completion rate of 86%.

Ream also won five of his eight duels in the match while also making 11 recoveries, two interceptions, and three clearances in Fulham’s third clean sheet out of its past five matches. The club will return to league action on Friday against Chelsea, but Ream may have to wait until the fourth round of the FA Cup to see the pitch next.

Elsewhere, Timothy Weah helped Lille remain in the Ligue 1 title race as the American forward started in a 1-0 win over Nimes. Matthew Hoppe stole the show for Schalke in a massive home win over Hoffenheim while Gio Reyna and Borussia Dortmund downed Tyler Adams and RB Leipzig on the road. Christian Pulisic and Zack Steffen both featured in Sunday FA Cup wins for their respective Premier League clubs. Chris Richards returned to Bayern II this weekend, but couldn’t help them avoid a 2-0 derby loss to 1860 Munich.

  1. Nice to see CCV back playing.
    Hoppe with an outstanding game, but before we get too carried away lets see if he can be a consistent scoring threat.
    Konrad looks too good for the reserves, but not up to par for the 1st team. He needs a loan to get 1st team minutes if he’s going to push his way onto the USA’s WCQ squad.
    Richards may be in the same boat….needs a loan to get consistent 1st team minutes.
    Everything else was about what was expected and we’ve come to expect for a Cup weekend. Guys in Germany did well, McKennie rotating in & out of the Juve XI, etc…
