Hello, and welcome to the weekly injury repor.... I mean Yanks Abroad! The Americans are getting beaten down with injuries lately, including a tease of a return for Weah who was injured in his return from injury. However the ladies are holding it down in Australia with six goals over the weekend. Romain Gall scored in Sweden, Timothy Tillman made a dream debut in Germany, and Sebastian Saucedo assisted a match winner in Liga MX.

Crystal Thomas

Thomas got Perth’s second goal of the day with a nifty, one touch chip of the keeper.

Simone Charley

On loan from the Portland Thorns, Charley scored a nice header in Canberra’s 3-1 win over Adelaide.
