The FA Cup Round of 16 draw took place on Monday with three Americans already guaranteed a spot and a few others that could join them.
Brenden Aaronson, Tyler Adams, and Weston McKennie will lead Leeds United’s quest for a quarterfinal round berth while Ethan Horvath, Antonee Robinson, Tim Ream, and Lynden Gooch could also join them in March’s Round of 16.
Jesse Marsch watched as Leeds United advanced past Accrington Stanley 3-1 on Saturday, advancing to the final 16 of the historic competition. Brenden Aaronson played 13 minutes off the bench for the Lilywhites, while Adams did not dress in the match.
McKennie will be seeking his FA Cup debut against either Fulham or Sunderland.
Tim Ream did not feature in Fulham’s 1-1 draw with Sunderland at Craven Cottage, while Antonee Robinson did not dress for Marco Silva’s squad. Lynden Gooch missed out for the Black Cats through injury, but will fight to return for Feb. 7th’s replay at the Stadium of Light.
Ethan Horvath made four saves in Luton Town’s 2-2 draw with League Two side Grimsby Town, and should Rob Edwards’ squad advance, they will visit Southampton in the Round of 16.
Here is the FA Cup Round of 16 draw involving American players:
Tyler Adams, Brenden Aaronson, Weston McKennie and Leeds United face Lynden Gooch and Sunderland or Tim Ream, Antonee Robinson and Fulham.
**If Ethan Horvath and Luton Town eliminate Grimsby Town, they will visit Southampton.
