We have plenty to examine from this past week. Timmy Chandler continued his good run of form for 3rd place Frankfurt in Germany and he was rewarded with a goal. Not everyone on this list is here for something good, but you can be sure that Daniel Williams showed us everything he has this weekend.

Here are your highlights and lowlights of the Yanks Abroad:

Timmy Chandler
Chandler was arguably Man of the Match today as Eintracht Frankfurt defeated RB Leipzig by a final of 2-1. It was a HUGE win for Frankfurt as they jumped from 7th to 3rd place in the Bundesliga, leaving Leipzig down in 5th. VIDEO LINK

Romain Gall
He scored for the first time this year as GIF Sundsvall knocked out Norrby from the Swedish Cup. He was subbed out in the 76’ min after scoring in the 55’ min. Unfortunately it was just a Cup match and I couldn’t find a video anywhere.

Danny Williams
He turned in better numbers than most of the Huddersfield Town lineup against Manchester United in FA Cup action over the weekend, but the Red Devils advanced with a 2-0 win. The guy played well but unfortunately all I can remember is when he was caught adjusting his shorts in the background of the TV feed. I’ll spare you the link to the tweet, but the poor guy exposed absolutely everything. This is the blurred out version if you are wondering how someone could possibly manage to do this on television.

Christian Pulisic
The 19 year old has acknowledged he hasn’t been at his best for Dortmund as of late, and he came off the bench in the 74’ min as BvB picked up a 1-0 win over Gladbach.

Bobby Wood
Bobby came off the bench in the 54’ min as Hamburger looked to come back from a two goal deficit, but he wasn’t too big of a factor. He was able to get off four shots (one on target) but Leverkusen took all three points with a 2-1 win. Hamburg struggles continue as they sit in next to last place.

Crystal Dunn
The Chelsea Ladies roared passed Doncaster with a 6-0 FA Cup win. Dunn went all 90 mins up top as the Blues advanced to the Quarterfinals to face Liverpool.

Heather O’Reilly
She went the full 90 in Arsenal’s tough 1-0 win over Millwall and the Gunners join Chelsea in the Quarterfinals but were drawn to face Charlton Athletic Women.

Tim Ream
Ream played a really solid match and helped earn a shutout as Fulham defeated Aston Villa 2-0 in the Championship. He was 8/8 on duels and added 8 clearances.

Cameron Carter-Vickers
He went the full 90 for Ipswitch Town in an absolutely wild 1-1 draw. First goal was scored in the 89’ min and then Norwich leveled it in the 90’ min. Unfortunately, CCV was marking the goalscorer. He went up to put a body on him, but the pass was on a dime and it was headed into the net. VIDEO LINK

Antonee Robinson
The 20 year old got the start and went the full 90 for the Bolton Wanderers in a 2-0 loss to the Queens Park Rangers. Robinson’s Bolton side are just 2 points clear of falling to the 3rd tier in England (although he is owned by Everton).

Aron Johannsson
He is dealing with a muscle injury but started and played 74 minutes as Werder Bremen Lost to Freiburg 1-0. It looked clear he was not 100% as he turned in some poor numbers and was the one who conceded the penalty that led to the goal. It was a pretty clumsy challenge. VIDEO LINK

Julian Green
Got the start and went the distance for Greuther Fuerth in a 1-1 draw with Fortuna Dusseldorf. Green was given a yellow card in the 43 min.

Kenny Saief
Saief went 90 minutes for Anderlecht in a 1-0 loss to St. Truiden in Belgium’s First Division A.

William Yarbrough
The regular starter went the distance between the sticks for Leon down in Mexico. They picked up a 1-1 draw against Queretaro FC.

Jorge Villafaña
The 28 year old went 90 minutes at left-back for Santos in a 2-0 loss to Toluca. Santos sit 2 points behind Club America in the early Mexican season.

Eric Lichaj
He got the start for Nottingham Forest, but only made it to the 28 min mark before seeing a red card and heading to the showers early. Nottingham ended up drawing with Burton Albion 0-0.
