This past weekend was a busy one throughout Europe.
We had 12 different players score goals for a total of 15 goals. So far, I have found highlights of Jordan Seabrook, Andrew Jacobson, Kenny Saief, Pablo Punyed and Cesar Romero. For more information on the other goals, check out our updated goal tracker.
But some other non-goal scoring noteworthy stuff happened this past weekend as well. Brad Guzan now leads all Premier League goalkeepers in clean sheets this season after posting a 1-0 win over Liverpool at Anfield (highlights). He was happy about the win.
Brek Shea made his Birmingham City debut and assisted on the Blues’ lone goal in their 1-1 draw to Leeds United (highlights). His performance was also worthy of Man of the Match honors by Birmingham City’s fans.
Julian Green also made his Hamburg debut, getting the start but getting subbed out at halftime of their 2-0 loss to Hannover 96. By most accounts, he was pretty so-so. Here is a photo of him in action (I really do like those white shirts). And Hamburg’s manager Mirko Slomka was fired.
Joe Gyau made Borussia Dortmund’s bench for the first time this season in their 3-1 win over Freiburg, but he did not get into the game.
On the youth team sides, Andrija Novakovich scored a goal for Reading’s U-18 team in a 2-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion. And Kyle Scott scored a goal for Chelsea’s U-18 team in a 2-2 draw to West Ham United.
Aron Johannsson will never get to play a game for new manager Marco van Basten as he has stepped down due to health issues.
Forbes’ Mark J. Burns writes about how Clint Dempsey and Jozy Altidore have seen an uptick in endorsement money following the World Cup.
Andy Schreur talked to Tab Ramos about the US U-20’s trip to Argentina.
It looks like Chivas USA’s Eric Avila is headed to Santos Laguna following the MLS season.
I posted a link last week about how Mexico was going after U-17 defender Edwin Lara and now it looks like Mexico’s U-17 team is going after a couple other dual nationals.
And finally, in the event you haven’t seen AC Milan’s Jeremy Menez’s goal from this past weekend, you need to check it out. Just dirty.
