Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Cannon, Brooks, and more

Boavista hasn’t seen many positives during the current Primeira Liga season, but certainly could take one from Saturday’s performance.

The visitors earned a 2-2 draw with second place FC Porto, hanging on for a point in their fight for survival. Reggie Cannon played 90 minutes at right back, helping the relegation strugglers to an important point on the road. Cannon won five of his six individual duels, made three clearances, made five interceptions, and also won both of his aerial battles. It was the U.S. Men’s National Team defender’s 17th league appearance this season and one of his best in the past few months.

The club sits one point from safety in the league table and next hosts Moreirense on Friday.

John Brooks helped Wolfsburg earn a sixth-consecutive clean sheet on Sunday in a scoreless draw with Borussia Monchengladbach. It saw Wolfsburg drop to fourth in the Bundesliga table, but overall it was a decent result against the seventh-place side in the standings. Brooks completed 88% of his passes in the match, won all four of his aerial battles, and also completed one tackle in the performance.

Elsewhere, Andrija Novakovich registered one assist in a Serie B win for Frosinone while Cameron Carter-Vickers retained his spot in Bournemouth’s starting lineup. Matthew Hoppe started but couldn’t help Schalke earn more than one point at Union Berlin. Yunus Musah and Sergino Dest both played in La Liga matches while Daryl Dike made an impact in Barnsley’s shocking win over Brentford.

  1. I wonder how the projected signing of Dayot Upamecano impacts Richards future at BayernM? Was the loan a way to shop Richards?

    • I believe there was no “buy option” in the loan deal with Hoffenheim so they at least want to have the option to keep him if he shows well.

  2. Uly’s father tweeted this week that he has been battling an illness and that his father passed away last week. Since there had been speculation about Uly’s absence and his father shared it publicly i though it appropriate to pass along.
