We are back at it again with another recap from the past week for the pool of Americans who are playing abroad. Unfortunately, the Yanks were fairly quiet this week and we don’t have much of the good stuff to report.

Josh Sargent made his first team debut and got his first goal, but there were also a lot of days to forget.

England

DeAndre Yedlin
He played 57 minutes before being sent off with a red card. The play was really ugly and there was no complaining from Yedlin about the decision. But you really have to look at his manager’s decision to have him playing as a centerback. Newcastle United fell to the Wolves by a final of 2-1. VIDEO

Tim Ream
Ream got his first start for Fulham since November 1st on Saturday. Unfortunately, it was against Manchester United and they got destroyed 4-1. It was far from his best day, but he did complete 85% of his passes and have eight recoveries.

Danny Williams
Getting the start against Arsenal over the weekend, Williams played 70 minutes in the midfield for Huddersfield Town. But it was’t pretty. He lost five out of six duels, was dispossessed twice, and completed just 62% of his passes. In the 38th minute, he got a yellow card for a very poor challenge and the Arsenal players were begging for a red.

Lynden Gooch
Gooch played the entire match for Sunderland, but it was abandoned due to rain with less than 20 minutes to play.

Cameron Carter-Vickers
CCV was brought in for the final 11 minutes to help secure the 3-2 win for Swansea City and was given a yellow card within one minute.

Geoff Cameron
The 33-year-old played the first half for Queens Park Rangers in a 2-1 loss at Leeds United.


Germany

Weston McKennie
McKennie played all 90 minutes for Schalke 04 against Borussia Dortmund and was actually playing up front. He showed up better than expected against such a formidable opponent. There was a lot to like from the youngster’s performance. Watch every single touch from McKennie RIGHT HERE.

Christian Pulisic
Jadon Sancho has turned into an absolute sensation and Pulisic has been seeing less of the pitch. He was then on the bench for Dortmund over the weekend but came on for the final minute to replace Sancho, who had scored the match winner.

Josh Sargent
Yes, he did really score with his first touch in his Bundesliga debut for Werder Bremen. Check out more in the Youth Update.

Bobby Wood
He entered the match in stoppage time and played about eight minutes as the match went into the 101st minute. Hannover drew 1-1 at Mainz 05.

Fabian Johnson
Johnson entered the match in the 78th minute as Borussia Mönchengladbach beat up on Stuttgart 3-0.

Julian Green
23-year-old Green got the start at striker for Greuther Fürth and played 59 minutes before getting subbed off. He had three shots (none on target), but turned in pretty decent numbers otherwise including 90% passing. He was taken out with his team down two goals, but they conceded three more without him for a final score of 5-0.

Joe Gyau
The Duisburg man played the final ten minutes of a 4-1 loss to Heidenheim.

Jann-Christopher George
He went the distance for Jahn Regensburg’s 3-1 loss to Cologne.


Belgium

Ethan Horvath
Club Brugge fell 2-1 at Waasland-Beveren on Friday. Horvath was between the sticks for all 90 minutes. But he was only scored on by a brilliant PK and a ridiculous own goal as well.


Netherlands

Andrija Novakovich
The Reading FC loanee played the last 16 minutes of Fortuna Sittard’s 3-0 loss to AZ Alkmaar.


Denmark

Jonathan Amon
Nordsjaelland shut-out AGF Aarhus 1-0 with Amon playing the final 17 minutes.


Switzerland

Kekuta Manneh
Manneh picked up an assist before being subbed out at halftime of St. Gallen’s 3-2 win over Xamax.
