A pretty good weekend for Americans in Europe.

Soccer: 2018 FIFA World Cup Qulafying-Mexico at USA Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

This past weekend saw American players playing outside of MLS appear one more time for their club before the FIFA international window begins. Some players were called up to the USMNT for upcoming World Cup qualifying and have already made the trip to the United States for the upcoming two matches. Before those matches happen, let’s take a look at how they fared over the weekend:

Bobby Wood

We start off with Bobby Wood, who smashed home his first goal of the season for Hamburger SV. Not that it was anything special, but it’s good to see him get on the board and hopefully he’ll continue the trend for Hamburg.

Christian Pulisic

With Ousmane Dembele gone at Borussia Dortmund, Pulisic is set for not just more minutes but more responsibility. He went the full 90 as BvB defeated Hertha Berlin 2-0.

Ethan Horvath

The 22-year-old keeper recorded a shutout for Club Brugge in a 4-0 win over Standard Liege in Belgium.

Haji Wright

Haji Wright was loaned to SV Sandhausen of 2. Bundesliga after a great preseason for Schalke 04. He came on in the 56th minute in a 2-1 over Fortuna Düsseldorf.

Timmy Chandler

Timmy Chandler picked up a yellow card as Eintracht Frankfurt were shut out by Wolfsburg 1-0. Timmy had a pretty poor stat line but most his team did as well.

Danny Williams

Huddersfield Town though! Danny Williams came on in the 61’ min in a 0-0 draw with Southampton. H-Town are undefeated in their first three Premier League games and sit in 3rd place at the moment.

Matt Miazga

Matt Miazga began the game on the bench but came on for the second half as Vitesse lost to AZ Alkmaar 2-1. He also picked up a yellow card in the 87’.

Geoff Cameron

Got the start for Stoke City in a 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion. He played pretty well, but was subbed out in the 69’ for Ramadan Sobhi as Stoke looked to equalize.

Omar Gonzalez

Omar Gonzalez went the full 90 for Pachuca in a 2-1 loss to Club Tijuana.

Alfredo Morales

Alfredo Morales went the distance for Ingolstadt down in the 2. Bundesliga in a 1-0 win over Greuther Fuerth.

Fabian Johnson

Fabian Johnson came on for the final 10 mins as Borussia Mönchengladbach drew with Augsburg 2-2.
