Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Yedlin, Reyna, and more


Galatasaray has made the final two weeks of the Turkish Super Lig season very interesting after earning the result of its campaign so far on Saturday.

DeAndre Yedlin returned to the Galatasaray starting lineup this weekend, helping the club defeat leaders Besiktas 3-1 at home. Now sitting three points back of Besiktas in the table with two matches remaining, confidence will be high within the squad to get the job done.

Yedlin played 90 minutes at right back, making one interception, winning one tackle, and winning two aerial battles. After being out for one month through injury, the U.S. Men’s National Team defender looked back to his old self and could finish the season a champion in Turkey.

Elsewhere, Gio Reyna helped Borussia Dortmund pick up a 3-2 win over RB Leipzig while Brenden Aaronson registered his first multi-goal game at Red Bull Salzburg. Christian Pulisic went the distance for Chelsea in a dramatic 2-1 road victory over Manchester City, Bryan Reynolds started at left back in a Serie A win for AS Roma, and John Brooks helped Wolfsburg pitch a clean sheet in a 3-0 triumph over Union Berlin.

  1. It looks like Deandre Yedlin has reignited his career ever since he made the move to Turkey. Good for Yedlin and happy for Matt Miazga! Ethan Horvath needs to do the same in this off season, or else he will be forgotten very quickly. BTW, can someone tell me what happened to Bobby Wood? Didn’t he join RSL? Just like when Wood was with Hamburg, he wasn’t even dressed yet for RSL in MLS this season.

  2. Aside from some injuries, the USMNT picture is coming into focus…
    Attack: Pulisic, Reyna, Sargent, Weah, Dike (will be change from Sargent)
    Mid: McKennie, Adams, Aaronson, Luca, Musah (we’ve seen his ability)
    Def: Brooks, Robinson, Dest, Cannon, Miazga,
    Keeper: Steffen
    And we have a good foundation to build upon.

    Throw in Richards, Reynolds, Boyd, Yedlin, and a couple MLS players to round out the squad and this could be a team to get us back on top of CONCACAF…and be a challenging opponent for many teams come the WC.

    • Not sure Luca has joined that set position yet. He looked very good in March but didn’t start either match. He’s one I’d almost rather see in GC so he can get more matches.
      I know people won’t like this but Roldan has been really good for Seattle this season so don’t be surprised if he is with the NT at some point this summer.
