Americans Abroad Midweek Rewind: Mewis, Sargent and more


Manchester City advanced to the UEFA Women’s Champions League quarterfinals on Thursday after seeing a trio of Americans all play a part in a dominant second leg win.

Samantha Mewis came off the bench to score twice in a 5-0 victory while   Rose Lavelle and Abby Dahlkemper both started and played 90 minutes. Mewis came off the bench for the second straight match after suffering an ankle injury back in January. After missing the last three Women’s Super League matches for Man City. Mewis was subbed on in the 45th minute and would score two goals in the second-half. It was a strong series overall for Gareth Taylor’s side, who now get a weekend off before returning to WSL play.

Elsewhere, Josh Sargent scored a goal against Arminia Bielefeld, his third straight appearances with a goal. Weston McKennie, Sergino Dest, and Tyler Adams all suffered Champions League elimination while Daryl Dike remained in the Barnsley starting lineup in the EFL Championship.

  1. I’ve been a bit curious about the acclimatization process some of the USWNT players have had adjusting to WSL. Mewis, Heath (before her injury), and now Dahlkemper seem to have more or less fitted right in, but not all of them have hit the ground running. In some cases, it’s clearly down to things like fitness and conditioning (Morgan), but with others, like Press and Lavelle, it seems less clear. But the last match against Fiorentina seemed to show that Lavelle is getting back to her level best. Hopefully, she goes on to distinguish herself as world class in the way that her play with the USWNT seems to indicate.
