The spotlight was on Brad Guzan this weekend as he likely assumes the starting goalkeeper spot for the US Men’s National Team and playing for a team fighting the relegation battle.  Guzan made three saves as Aston Villa picked up three points and moved out of the relegation zone into 17th place.

We had a few goal scorers this weekend.  Terrence Boyd scored his 15th goal across all competitions in Rapid Vienna’s 2-2 draw (highlights here).  Over in Germany, Preston Zimmerman scored his fourth goal of the season in Darmstadt 98′s 2-0 win over Stuttgart II (highlights here).  In the Svenska Cupen, Alejandro Bedoya found the back of the net in Helsingborg’s 5-0 win.  And Herculez Gomez continued his good form with a goal against Atlante (highlights here).

And there were some players who did not play this weekend.  Both Michael Bradley and Jermaine Jones did not see the field due to yellow card accumulation.  While Fabian Johnson did not play for Hoffenheim this weekend due to a hip issue, continuing the trend of injuries to USMNT regulars.

    Things are quite dire lately for Americans abroad…

  2. Gregory says:

    Is Johnathan Spector ever going to get called into another camp? He looked good vs Italy, and is starting in the Championship. I don’t see how MLSers can get call-ups over him. I’m not saying he should start or is a missing piece, but he deserves to go to camp and compete. I think the Championship is underrated by fans and the US media.

  3. daniil says:

    I agree that the championship is underrated. Jay Demerit was a solid center-back for us for many matches and spent almost his entire career in the championship

  4. Trent Hill says:

    Agreed. Seb Hines could use a call-up too.

  5. Gregory says:

    Has it be made clear Seb Hines has a passport or whatever it takes to play for the USA? It’s almost unbelievable he has not been called up if he is eligible.

    My theory is the US soccer media and MLS pretend the Championship doesn’t exist because of the number of MLS players it washes out.
