Americans Abroad Weekend Preview: Musah, Brooks, and more


Yunus Musah has continued to fight for starting minutes at La Liga side Valencia and will face another big test this weekend in league play.

Musah and Valencia host Barcelona on Sunday, looking to continue their quest up the league table.
