Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Yedlin, Brooks, and more


Galatasaray remained in the heat of the Turkish Super Lig title race and Saturday’s win over Kayserispor saw DeAndre Yedlin impress in his first start back in the lineup.

Yedlin returned to his right back position and excelled in a 3-0 road victory, keeping Galatasaray two points behind leaders Besiktas. The U.S. Men’s National Team defender was unused substitute in last weekend’s draw vs. Sivasspor, but returned in the backline on Saturday. The 27-year-old completed 31 of his 36 passes, while also completing three of his four dribble attempts.

It was a bounce back performance from Yedlin, who helped his team rebound from last weekend’s slip-up. The club has 11 league matches remaining on its schedule, including a May 9th home clash with Besiktas, which could be a deciding factor in the title race. Yedlin will hope to play a part down the stretch after impressing in limited time following his winter move from Newcastle United.

Elsewhere, John Brooks excelled for Wolfsburg in a 5-0 shutout win over struggling Schalke while Christian Pulisic made his first league start under Thomas Tuchel on Saturday. Lynden Gooch scored the winning goal as Sunderland ended its 48-year trophy drought by claiming the EFL Trophy on Sunday.

Brenden Aaronson and Erik-Palmer Brown both started in Austrian Bundesliga play while Tim Weah got the nod in Lille’s starting lineup despite the club dropping points in a scoreless road draw with Monaco. Bryan Reynolds made his AS Roma debut, coming off the bench in an eventual 2-0 loss to Parma.

  1. San Antonio FC’s Jose Gallegos going on a two week trial with Bayern Munich supposedly Bayern is interested in a transfer. Jose is very talented if you haven’t seen him go on YouTube. Sometimes he can get a little cute doing moves instead of trying to influence a match. Being in USL pandemic probably hurt him as much as any young American, the U20 WC would have been a great showcase for him. If you find the highlights from their friendly with FCD last Feb, he was the best player on the pitch. A pitch that included guys like Ferreira, Cannon, Reynolds, Tessmann and Pepi. Who knows if he pans out but pretty cool a guy from USL on a trial to the German giants.

    • Kid has talent, the question is why is he in USL at this point. Was it a tactic to avoid MLS asking too much from a Euro team, or was it he didn’t want to leave home. If he didn’t want to leave home…calls into question his mental state.
      The more talent we have competing in Europe the more depth possibilities for the USMNT.

      • What I had heard was that he wanted control and to bring the cash to his hometown team. Pandemic kept him from trialing last year when he became old enough. Of course all that was rumor and speculation of others.
