Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Reynolds, Pulisic, and more


Bryan Reynolds has been waiting in the wings to make his full debut for AS Roma and the FC Dallas loanee finally got to cross that achievement off his list on Sunday.

With AS Roma resting several key starters for this week’s Europa League quarterfinal second leg tie vs. Ajax, Reynolds got the start at right wing back in a 1-0 Serie A victory over Bologna. It was only his second appearance for the club since arriving from FC Dallas and the U.S. Men’s National Team defender will be pleased he helped the team to three points.

Reynolds showed promising moments in his 76-minute shift for the hosts, completing 21 of his 26 passing attempts (81%), while also completing one tackle, and making one interception. The 19-year-old didn’t look out of place and could be in the mix for minutes with eight league matches to play this season.

Elsewhere, Christian Pulisic delivered his first multi-goal performance of the 2020-21 season while Gio Reyna also impressed in an important league win for Borussia Dortmund. Weston McKennie netted his fifth Serie A goal of the season for Juventus in a 3-1 triumph over Genoa. John Brooks continued to rack up minutes for Wolfsburg, despite the club’s Bundesliga loss to Eintracht Frankfurt.

Tyler Adams left RB Leipzig’s match with a slight back injury while Antonee Robinson went the distance for Fulham in a loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers. Daryl Dike continued his hot run of form for Barnsley, Mark McKenzie helped Genk clinch a top four spot in Belgium, and Sergino Dest started, but didn’t finish the match in Barcelona’s El Clasico loss to Real Madrid.

  1. I watched the Roma game and Reynolds wasn’t great, but wasn’t bad. You could see a young player playing it safe, and that doesn’t necessarily mean a bad thing. I saw a lot of back passes and only a few attempts at overlapping wing play. The central midfielders mostly preferred to pass to the left side of the field, albeit probably knowing Reynolds is still new. Hopefully more and more game time can come and his comfortability factor can rise

  2. Although it went under the radar in a losing effort, Antonee Robinson looked the best player on the pitch for Fulham against Wolves this weekend. I’d personally like to see Fulham stay up at the expense of Newcastle (although that no longer looks likely to happen), but even if they do go down, I can’t imagine we won’t see Robinson in the Premier League next season, for an established if not challenging-for-Europe club.

    It’ll be interesting to see how our fullback situation evolves over the next year or two, but those of us who are advocating that we move on from Robinson entirely clearly aren’t paying attention to his improvement in league play. If he shows the same growth with the national team, he’s going to be at the forefront of the conversation for years to come.

  3. A nice weekend for our players. Guys continuing their good run of form (Adams, McKennie, Dike, Aaronson, Sargent, Brooks, etc…) and others ramping up their game/returning to form (Pulisic & Reyna).
    We have an excellent crop of young talented players. Its going to be fun watching these guys (and others) build chemistry and gain experience over the next 18 months.
