Americans Abroad Midweek Rewind: Ream, Weah, and more

16 Shares

English Football League Championship side Fulham clinched its spot back into the Premier League for next season and Tim Ream logged his latest impressive outing in Tuesday’s shutout win over Preston North End.

Ream earned his 42nd start of the league season, playing 90 minutes in a 3-0 home victory at Craven Cottage. The result for Marco Silva’s men guaranteed them an automatic berth into the English top-flight and continued what has been a sensational campaign for the London-based club. Ream, 34, has been impressive all season long for Fulham, and that trend continued Tuesday as he won three of five duels, made four interceptions, and won his lone tackle attempt. Fulham raced out to a three-goal lead before halftime and cruised the rest of the way, moving to 86 points through 42 matches played. A victory over second-place Bournemouth on Saturday would clinch a first place finish for Fulham.

In France, Tim Weah made his first start for Lille since mid-March, logging 90 minutes in a 2-1 loss to Stade Reims. Erik Palmer-Brown continued to start for Troyes, however the French club lost 1-0 to Clermont Foot.

In Spain, Barcelona defeated Real Sociedad 1-0 where Sergiño Dest came off the bench to play 34 minutes. Xavi Hernandez’s side sits six points clear of fifth place Real Betis with six matches remaining.

In Argentina, Alan Sonora saved a home result for Independiente, registering a match-tying assist in a 1-1 draw with second place Aldosivi.

In Hungary, Henry Wingo did not dress in Ferencvaros’ Hungarian Cup win.
