Yanks Abroad: Wood’s drought continues

New, 13 comments

It was a very quiet weekend for the Americans’ return to club action.

The Americans returned to their clubs for the weekend, heads held low. We’ve got just one lonely 2. Bundesliga goal to talk about this week, and very few quality performances. Bobby Wood hasn’t scored in almost two months in league play and Geoff Cameron was an unfortunate victim of Man City on the weekend. But Matt Miazga and Ethan Horvath continued to stay in form in the smaller European leagues.

Bobby Wood
Continued his goal-less streak for Hamburger SV, who were defeated 3-2 on Saturday at Mainz 05. Bobby has scored just once (zero assists) this Bundesliga season and that was back on the 2nd game of the season. Wish I could say he made up for it elsewhere, but he was only able to get one shot off and was subbed out in the 79th min.

Christian Pulisic
He made his return to the Borussia Dortmund lineup on Saturday, subbing on at halftime for Jeremy Toljan. He finished with 88% passing and a shot off target in the 3-2 defeat. The Golden Boy will look to get back on track vs APOEL in Champions League play on Tuesday.

Alfredo Morales
Doubled the lead for Ingolstadt in the 2. Bundesliga in just the 23rd min, but Dynamo Dresden came back to earn the 2-2 draw. He also picked up a yellow card in the 2nd half.

DeAndre Yedlin
Newcastle drew with Southampton 2-2 on Sunday and Yedlin was one of the better players on the field for the Magpies. He picked up a yellow card in the 40th min and was contributing all over the pitch.

Matt Miazga
Went the distance for Vitesse, anchoring the backline in a 1-1 draw with Heracles.

Geoff Cameron
He started and went the full 90 for a Stoke City side that was absolutely beaten to a pulp by Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City by a final of 7-2. Not much to say for Cameron in this one, like most of the visiting team.

Crystal Dunn
Made her first start of the new season since returning from injury. She was featured on the right side for the Chelsea ladies in a 1-0 win over Liverpool.

Fabian Johnson
He played 74 minutes of Borussia Mönchengladbach’s 2-0 shutout at Werder Bremen. He had one key pass to create an opportunity but had a very quiet day other than that.

Timmy Chandler
Chandler picked up a yellow card in the first half of a 2-1 win for his Eintracht Frankfurt side over Hannover 96. He has settled in nicely as the starting right back and continues to be a an important member of that back line.

Ethan Horvath
The 22-year-old Club Brugge keeper was between the pipes for a 3-2 win at Oostende. Horvath has yet to concede more than two goals in a single match this season in Belgium’s first division.

Omar Gonzalez
Returned to the Pachuca back line to start and go the distance in a 2-0 loss for Monterrey. He will want to put last week behind him forever.

Danny Williams
Made his first appearance since September 16th on Saturday when he came on in the 60th minute for Huddersfield Town in a visit to Swansea City.
