Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Palmer-Brown, Richards, and more


Erik Palmer-Brown returned to the pitch for Austria Vienna on Sunday and helped deliver a strong defensive performance by the team against rivals Rapid Vienna.

Palmer-Brown returned from injury to play 90 minutes as Austria Vienna played out a scoreless draw at home. The U.S. Men’s National Team center back was all over the place for the hosts, helping the team remain alive in the race for a top six spot. The 23-year-old won 11 of his 15 duels,  completing a game-high four dribbles to go with seven clearances and 10 recoveries in his first match since February 14th.

The Manchester City loanee has been having a strong season back in Austria and will now look to remain fit for the final push of the league season. Up next for the club is a trip to Sturm Graz, sitting three points from sixth place with two matches to play.

Elsewhere, Chris Richards excelled for Hoffenheim in a 2-1 league win over John Brooks and Wolfsburg. Josh Sargent scored for the second week in a row while Luca De La Torre registered his first goal for Eredivisie side Heracles Almelo. Sergino Dest helped Barcelona earn a shutout road victory over Osasuna. Brenden Aaronson and Taylor Booth also recorded goals in Sunday’s Bundesliga showdown . Tyler Adams also impressed in a comfortable league win for RB Leipzig. Timothy Weah got the start for Lille in a 3-1 Coupe De France win over Ajaccio.

  1. Was there ever a weekend in which Americans Abroad scored 10 goals and had 3 assists before? In addition, at least 4 players (Brooks, Miazga, Dest, Richards) are starting defenders in top leagues and 2, Adams and Mckennie are aggressive defensive midfielders who are playing at the highest level. The US has never had so many players performing so well at the top level. Never for me is looking back over 50 years.

    And neither Reyna nor Pulisic were a part of this.

    GB has a problem that none of Bora, Sampson, Arena, Bradley or Klinsmann ever had. That is which talented players to leave off the squad (well Klinsmann overlooked Donavon, but that is another story).

    • Ah Dennis. I share your enthusiasm for this burgeoning talent. But I can’t agree that we are even close to “turning away talent” for big games. We are a lot more threadbare than people think — the idea of getting our “stone-cold starters” like Brooks, McKennie, Admans, Pulisic, Steffen, Dest, Reyna on the pitch at the same time is something we have not even come close to doing. We hope that the stars align from time to time to get a our fantasy “Best XI” on the same pitch (ideally at a World Cup!) but for me it’s much more likely we have to find our way through some tricky WCQ games using far less glamorous personnel.
      But I’d definitely agree — once we qualify (and we will), there are def going to be some very good players who feel hard done by!

  2. Really hope to see Siebatcheu called in and hopefully accepts. A much needed goal scorer, having a great year so far.

    Could be a real nice pick up at forward. Eligible for us, France, and Cameroon. We are at a nice sweet spot, i think, France is real wishful thinking for a 24 yr old loanee playing in the swiss league. Unless he has a passion for Cameroon, we are a better national team scene. He’d instantly be up the depth chart at forward, behind Sargent.

    • Watching highlights of Siebatcheu and Barnsley’s loanee Daryle Dike have been amazing. They’re fast, physical and possess skills to score goals. Both can bring a totally different element to the table in the USMNT’s striker position during the super rough and, sometimes dirty, CONCACAF World Cup qualifications on the road.

  3. Going back and reviewing the level our players available from the 2018 cycle and comparing them to what’s available now is shocking. Yes there are still a couple positions that are TBD/Thin, but most every other position has viable options.
    30+ years of following the USMNT and there has never been a player pool this deep or talented.

  4. There are going to be a lot of “snubs” at this March camp because there are so many guys playing well right now. Be interesting to see where Aaronson plays (if he doesn’t join the U23s of course). Played as a 10 for Union’s 4-4-2 diamond, playing as a wing in Salzburg’s 4-4-2 double 6.
