Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Miazga, Brooks, and more


Anderlecht may be out of the Belgian Pro League title race, but its quest for a top four spot remained very much alive after an important win on Sunday.

Matt Miazga started in the heart of Anderlecht’s backline at Genk and helped his team pick up a 2-1 victory. It was Anderlecht’s first league win since January 19th, which extended its unbeaten run to six matches across all competitions. Miazga continued to rack up the minutes from his center back position, completing 86% of his passes, making three recoveries, and four clearances in the comeback win.

Sunday’s win moved Anderlecht to fourth place in the Pro League table, two points back of Genk for third place and five points out of second place Royal Antwerp. Miazga has now totaled 18 appearances for the club since arriving on loan from Chelsea and could make an additional eight more league appearances before the season ends in April.

John Brooks continued to be a key piece to Wolfsburg’s good run of form while Tyler Adams went the distance as RB Leipzig downed Schalke away from home. Tyler Boyd made his first start for Sivasspor in Turkish Super Lig play. DeAndre Yedlin helped Galatasaray close out an important road victory over Fenerbahce in his club debut. Weston McKennie got the start for Juventus in a 2-0 home triumph over AS Roma.

  1. This list is getting long. It was not all that long ago when Brian McBride and Steve Cherundolo were the only US players seeing significant action abroad over more than a couple seasons. (Harkes, Jones, Lalas and Wynaldo had their moments, but they were not really consistent performers. And they made for a pretty sparse list.)

  2. When my boi Jann Christopher George gonna get some love? May not be a world beater but fathers American and has been a rotational player in the B2. Also scored last weekend.
