It was a little more quiet this past week for our Americans playing abroad, but we have a Julian Green sighting and Pulisic got himself back in the action as well. We took a look around the globe and put together a list of the highlights & low lights.
A fire has been lit under Julian Green as of late. His Greuther Fürth side have made their way out of the relegation zone after a 2-1 win over Kaiserslautern. Green got the scoring opened in the 17 minute with his second goal of the season. VIDEO LINK
Dortmund picked up a huge 3-2 win over Eintracht Frankfurt. They’re sitting in 3rd place with 45 points. Pulisic was credited with an assist and - in my personal record book - gets a goal himself after forcing an own goal.

19 year old McKennie got the start for Schalke and went 90 minutes in the 1-0 win. It wasn’t necessarily his best showing but McKennie is proving to always show up on defense. He has great instincts and is absolutely everywhere breaking up passes and winning tackles. He only finished with 61% passing but he won eight duels, six tackles while adding five clearances and two interceptions.
The Fulham defender went 90 minutes in a 2-1 win at Preston North End. They haven’t lost in 11 straight matches and are now just 8 points back from Championship leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers.
He went 90 minutes for Ipswich Town in a 0-0 against Sheffield United.
Chandler went 90 minutes for Frankfurt in the loss to Pulisic’s BvB. The two sides were even at 42 points and the loss left Frankfurt in 5th place.
Villafaña went the distance for Santos Laguna as they beat Monterrey 3-2.
The Gent loanee went 90 minutes for Anderlecht in a 2-1 win over Royal Antwerp. Anderlecht is in 2nd place and 12 points back from Club Brugge.
The Leon keeper was between the sticks for a 2-0 loss to Club America.
Miazga and Vitesse were blown out by FC Utrecht by a final of 5-1.
