10 American soccer players to watch in Europe this fall
With the European leagues in full swing, let’s take a look at 10 American soccer players who are plying their trade across the pond this fall.
10. Weston McKennie
The 20-year-old Schalke 04 midfielder has logged two Bundesliga appearances this season. In a friendly against Portugal last November, his first U.S. national team match, McKennie scored a nifty goal.
9. Matt Miazga
On loan from Chelsea, the 23-year-old Nantes defender is looking to make his mark on Ligue 1 this fall. The 6-foot-4 center back debuted for his new team on August 18.
8. Geoff Cameron
The U.S. national team veteran, now 33, is with Queens Park Rangers this fall. His side will be toiling in the Championship, where Stoke, the squad that loaned him out, is also relegated to this fall.
7. Josh Sargent
The 18-year-old striker has been on fire for Werder Bremen’s under-23 squad. In seven appearances, he has five goals. Sargent could see action with the senior team soon.
6. Danny Williams
The Huddersfield Town midfielder is working to get back on the pitch after fracturing his fibula while training last March.
5. Tim Weah
In his first season with Paris Saint-Germain’s senior team, the 18-year-old striker, whose father George starred at PSG, Monaco, and Milan, is off to a flying start. In the side’s season-opening victory over Caen, he scored a goal.
4. Bobby Wood
The 25-year-old striker, on loan from Hamburger SV to Hannover 96 this season, has yet to make an appearance for his new team, but may see action this week.
3. John Brooks
The 25-year-old defender headed in a goal in VfL Wolfsburg’s season-opening win over Schalke 04 late last month. Brooks, a U.S. national team stalwart, is now in his second season with Wolfsburg after beginning his career at Hertha BSC.
2. DeAndre Yedlin
Against Manchester City early last month, Newcastle’s lightning-fast right back scored his first Premier League goal. Yedlin should be a top attraction for American soccer fans this fall.
1. Christian Pulisic
The immensely talented midfielder is already a budding star. The Borussia Dortmund standout, who’s only 19, should be fun to watch for the next decade-plus.
