We’ve got a new & improved Yanks Abroad for you this week, as we catch up with our United States Men’s National Team players who are playing overseas!
The German seasons have ended so the list is much shorter than normal, but it was an exciting weekend over in England with teams fighting to secure spots on the final day. Christian Pulisic & Chelsea secured their place in the Champions League, and we have Tim Ream fought for promotion with Fulham on Monday.
Christian Pulisic - Forward, Chelsea
After a disappointing loss at Liverpool the week before, Chelsea took care of business with a 2-0 win over Wolverhampton Wolves to take 4th place as well as that final UEFA Champions League spot. Pulisic’s speed and tenacity helped create the second goal and put the game away.
He has truly has become one of Chelsea’s best, most exciting players. They’ll need him to be in top form in the FA Cup final against Arsenal on Saturday and the Champions League Round of 16 match up with Bayern Munich next week.
Just as the prophecy foretold, our boy is out there doing big things!
DeAndre Yedlin - Defender, Newcastle United
Newcastle finished the season in a safe, but disappointing 13th place and they did it without Yedlin for the most part. He had only one appearance in the team’s last four games, after going 90 minutes in an ugly 5-0 beating from Manchester City.
His contract expires after next season and he has not been offered an extension yet, while they did extend the contract of fellow right back Javier Manquillo. So after four seasons with Newcastle, Yedlin is expected to be leaving this summer.
Tim Ream - Defender, Fulham
Fulham got the 2-0 win away at Cardiff in the 1st leg of their Promotion Playoff yesterday, setting themselves nicely to advance to the final and jump back up to the Premier League. Tim Ream has been the anchor of their back line all season as they recorded 17 clean sheets (2nd in the league), and they were also 5th best in goals conceded.
Andrija Novakovich - Forward, Frosinone
It’s a very busy schedule in Italy for Serie B right now. Novakovich put in 90 minutes on Friday, recording an assist in a 3-2 loss against Benevento, and 84 minutes on Monday in a 1-0 loss at Crotone. Frosinone fell to 8th place with one match to play. The teams finishing 3rd-8th qualify for a promotion playoff.
