New, 6 comments

While plenty of seasons have wrapped up, we’ve got some action from the Americans including a very nice goal from Matt Miazga.

Many of the leagues around the globe have finished, but some of the Americans playing abroad were still fighting in important matches over the weekend. Miazga scored his fourth goal of the season in Belgium and John Brooks is back in the lineup as Wolfsburg look to secure their place in the Bundesliga next year. Plus Villafaña won the Clausura Final in Mexico with Santos.

Matt Miazga
He scored the decisive goal to qualify Vitesse for the Europa League next season with a very nice header in their 2-1 win over FC Utrecht. Miazga had 15 clearances in the game. A key player for his loaned team, he will probably be on to a bigger challenge next season as Chelsea loan him out again. VIDEO

John Brooks
Brooks played in the first leg of the Bundesliga Qualification on Thursday and Wolfsburg picked up the 3-1 win over Holstein Kiel. They play the 2nd leg on Monday afternoon, but it looks like Brooks and Wolfsburg are safe.

Jorge Villafaña
After surviving a big scare when he was robbed at gunpoint, Jorge got on the field for 35 minutes for Santos as they drew 1-1 with Toluca in the 2nd leg to win the Clausura Final.

Ethan Horvath
After already securing the title in Belgium, Club Brugge lost to Gent in a meaningless game for them. Horvath went the full 90 between the sticks for the 1-0 loss. He was called into the USMNT for the upcoming friendlies.

Romain Gall
He played all 90 minutes as GIF Sundsvall were defeated 3-2 by Östersunds FK. Gall finished with 20/27 passing, three shots (two on target), one key pass, but he was dispossessed once and lost 7 duels.

Tim Weah
The 18-year-old got his first start for PSG and did pretty well with his time on the pitch, nearly earning an assist. For more on Weah, CLICK HERE.
