While several of our United Sates National Team members were part of ugly losses and rough performances, there were a few positives mixed in as well. Mallory Weber gave her team the win in Australia with a brace. Plus DeAndre Yedlin & Weston McKennie were back on the pitch. But then we have Tim Ream who was sent off after just six minutes.
Let’s check in on the Yanks Abroad:
On her loan from the Utah Royals, Weber recorded a first half brace for Adelaide in a 3-2 win over Western Sydney. She got one in the 39th and then another just before the halftime whistle to make it 3-0.
She scored the loan goal for Metz ina 5-1 beating from PSG.
Hudson opened the scoring as Guingamp got the 3-1 win over Marseille.
Hull City were eliminated from the FA Cup after a 2-1 loss to Chelsea. The Championship side put up a good effort as the Chelsea goals came by way of a deflection and a set piece. Lichaj played all 90 minutes, dealing with Callum Hudson-Odoi & Cesar Azpilicueta. He picked up a yellow card in the 63rd minute after bringing down Mason Mount with his trailing leg.
