Geoff Cameron (Stoke City)
Cameron was an unused substitute for Stoke in a 3-0 loss to Arsenal. After picking up a knock last week, it’s unclear if his absence was due to health or not, but he was on the bench, so whatever injury he did pick up clearly isn’t a serious one. Stoke still sit in 19th place, three points from safety.
Emerson Hyndman (Bournemouth)
Hyndman didn’t appear for Bournemouth's senior or U-21 sides this week.
Williams fractured his fibula in training in mid-March and will be out for the rest of the season.
DeAndre Yedlin (Newcastle United)
After playing 90 minutes for the USMNT in a 1-0 win over Paraguay last Tuesday, Yedlin lined up against Williams’ Huddersfield side this weekend, going the distance in a 1-0 win for the Magpies. Yedlin was solid throughout, earning a 7.2 whoscored.com rating while passing at a 79 percent clip. He didn’t make any electric plays, but his backline did well to keep a clean sheet for the second consecutive game.
Gedion Zelalem (Arsenal)
Zelalem is recovering from a torn ACL suffered at the U-20 World Cup in May. Initial estimates had him missing up to nine months. He looks to be on the road to recovery, and he has returned to training for Arsenal. There’s still no estimate on when he’ll return to game action, though.
Cameron Carter-Vickers (Ipswich Town, on loan from Tottenham Hotspur)
Carter-Vickers logged a full shift for the USMNT before doing the same for Ipswich on Friday in a 1-0 loss to Birmingham. He would then sit out Ipswich’s 2-2 draw with Millwall on Monday. It might not have been the best idea to play Carter-Vickers in two games on two continents in such a short amount of time as he was burned twice early by the Birmingham attack, with the second of those instances resulting in a penalty conceded by CCV and the Blues’ only tally of the game. He did win five aerials but was also beaten to some dangerous plays in the box and looked a step off the pace all game. After four losses and two draws in their last six, Ipswich will not be competing for promotion.
Luca de la Torre (Fulham)
No new news has come out about de la Torre’s potential move to the states, but he was again absent from Fulham’s side this week, which won 2-0 over Norwich.
Tim Ream (Fulham)
Ream, however, did go a full 90 at center back for Fulham in the aforementioned win. The defense had a major bend-don’t-break attitude, and despite allowing 14 shots, most of the Norwich opportunities were from outside the box. The Canaries came close from distance a couple of times but couldn’t find the mark as Ream helped his team earn a clean sheet. Ream also attempted 63 passes, completing 90 percent of them.
Lynden Gooch (Sunderland)
Gooch made back-to-back appearances for Sunderland on Friday and Monday, starting in both a 4-1 win over Derby and a 3-1 loss to Sheffield Wednesday and making an impact in each. In the first, his darting run early in the second half was stopped illegally in the penalty box, and Aiden McGeady converted the ensuing spot kick to put the Black Cats up 3-1. In the second, Gooch provided a brilliant assist to knot the game up at one before his side capitulated. The right winger turned his defender in the corner before whipping a cross to the back post that landed right on George Honeyman’s head for a simple goal, made almost exclusively by Gooch (the clip starts at 1:13 in this video). All in all, it was an impressive two-game stretch for Gooch, who hadn't appeared for the senior side since January. In the second contest, he was removed with seven minutes to play.
Eric Lichaj (Nottingham Forest)
Lichaj was an unused sub for the USMNT last week. On Friday, he missed out on Forest’s 2-0 loss to Millwall, and their game Monday against Barnsley was postponed due to an unplayable pitch.
Antonee Robinson (Bolton, on loan from Everton)
Robinson was also an unused sub for the USMNT and missed out on the 18-man roster for Bolton in their 2-1 loss to Leeds on Friday.
Gboly Ariyibi (Northampton Town, on loan from Nottingham Forest)
Ariyibi appeared twice for Northampton Town in a pair of losses, 4-0 to Charlton and 2-0 to Peterborough. In the former, Ariyibi was sent on before halftime with his side already down 2-0 and was not able to move the needle. In the second, he again couldn’t muster up much; despite starting, he was removed with 15 minutes to play and the final scoreline already in hand for Peterborough.
Duane Holmes (Scunthorpe United)
Holmes played 85 minutes for Scunthorpe in a 1-1 draw with Oxford. He wasn’t involved in his side’s tally and didn’t commit the foul that led to a penalty and Oxford’s lone goal. Holmes did pick up a yellow card. Scunthorpe’s Monday fixture against Plymouth Argyle was postponed due to bad weather.
John Anthony Brooks (Wolfsburg)
Once again, Brooks missed out with a knee problem as Wolfsburg scrapped for a scoreless away draw against the center back’s former club, Hertha Berlin.
Timmy Chandler (Eintracht Frankfurt)
Chandler had a quiet 65-minute outing at left back as Frankfurt lost 2-1 to Werder Bremen on Sunday. The 28-year-old totalled two clearances and one key pass but was mostly on the periphery throughout, coming on with the game tied a goal apiece in the 65th minute. He wasn’t involved in either goal that had been scored at that point. Frankfurt fell into sixth place in a tight race for the top four in the Bundesliga.
Aron Johannsson (Werder Bremen)
Ten minutes after Chandler exited, Johannsson entered the field of play, and just four minutes after that, Bremen found their winner. Johannsson played a tiny role in the goal, as he was the target of an under-hit cross that David Abraham headed back towards his own net before Lukas Hradecky fumbled it across the goal line for a brutal own goal (which was credited to Abraham). In addition to that, Johannsson won a pair of aerials and made one tackle in his short time on the pitch, and Bremen secured three valuable points that widen the gap between themselves and 16th place to 10 points.
Fabian Johnson (Borussia Monchengladbach)
After returning to the fold for Monchengladbach prior to the international break, Johnson returned to the sidelines this weekend with a recurrence of the back injury that has blighted his season. He did not appear for Gladbach in a scoreless draw with Mainz.
Weston McKennie (Schalke)
Despite being called up to the USMNT squad, McKennie was not in the matchday squad for the win over Paraguay, reportedly due to a slight groin injury.
Christian Pulisic (Borussia Dortmund)
Pulisic may have been Dortmund’s best player on Saturday, but that’s not saying much as the Black-and-Yellows were throttled 6-0 by Bayern Munich. The right winger had one very notable moment early which could have swung the game, but Michy Batshuayi headed his inviting cross wide, and Dortmund were blown away afterwards. Pulisic finished with one shot on target, two successful dribbles in three tries, and one tackle. Dortmund remain in third place, but they sit just three points ahead of sixth-place Eintracht.
Caleb Stanko (SC Freiburg)
After suffering a knee injury prior to the international break, Stanko was not involved for Freiburg in their aforementioned defeat to Schalke. There’s no timetable as to a possible return, but the injury did require surgery, so it’s unlikely that he’ll be back in action any time soon.
Bobby Wood (Hamburg)
Wood had a relatively poor performance in the USMNT’s 1-0 win over Paraguay, struggling to hold the ball up and all too often losing battles to defenders, but he also converted the penalty that proved decisive just before halftime. Wood was withdrawn in the 77th minute. He was then absent from the Hamburg squad on the weekend reportedly due to an injury, although there is no available news on what specifically the problem is. Hamburg drew 1-1 with Stuttgart and remain trapped at the base of the table, seven points from a playoff spot with six games to go.
Terrence Boyd (Darmstadt)
Boyd played 86 minutes and helped struggling Darmstadt earn a shocking 1-0 win over league-leading Fortuna Dusseldorf on Monday. The striker had an unenviable task which was made more difficult when Darmstadt went down to 10 men just before halftime, but they defended their lead from there (Boyd wasn’t involved in the game’s only goal). Playing as a lone striker, Boyd did what was asked of him, winning 10 of 18 aerials he contested and recording two shots (although neither tested the opposing keeper). With six games to go, Darmstadt climbed to within three points of 16th-place Heidenheim in an extremely tight 2. Bundesliga table in which just six points separate 16th place from fourth.
McKinze Gaines (Darmstadt)
Gaines was not included in the Darmstadt squad against Dusseldorf.
Jann George (Jahn Regensburg)
George came off at halftime with Regensburg down 2-0 to Erzgebirge Aue in a game they’d lose 3-1. He had a decent first-half showing, recording two shots on target, winning three aerials, and making one tackle. Nonetheless, he was the player pulled off at the break, although there’s no reports of an injury or other reason why.
Ken Gipson (Sandhausen)
Gipson suffered a broken leg in training over Sandhausen’s winter break during a collision with a teammate. He is not expected to play again this season.
Andrew Wooten (Sandhausen)
Wooten finally made his return from injury, entering in the 65th minute of a 1-1 game against St. Pauli that finished with that same scoreline. The forward — who was making his first appearance since August — played 25 minutes and carved out one notable chance which was turned away by the opposing keeper. Although he didn’t find the net, Wooten’s return is a pleasant surprise, as there had previously been a noticeable lack of updates on his status. Sandhausen are in seventh place, and Wooten will attempt to lift the side higher over the final six games of the season as he regains match fitness.
Haji Wright (Sandhausen, on loan from Schalke)
Wright was not included in Sandhausen’s 18-man squad for that draw.
Julian Green (Greuther Fuerth, on loan from Stuttgart)
Green was taken off after 89 minutes in Greuther Fuerth’s 2-1 win over Union Berlin. Playing as a striker in a 4-4-2, the 22-year-old had a decent, if unspectacular, contest. He wasn’t involved in any of the game’s goals and recorded two shots and one dribble while completing 17 of 19 pass attempts. Fuerth moved into 14th place with the win, but they’re just one point back of seventh.
Jerome Kiesewetter (Fortuna Dusseldorf)
Kiesewetter was not in the Fortuna side that lost 1-0 to Darmstadt.
Alfredo Morales (Ingolstadt)
Morales came on in the 72nd minute with Ingolstadt ahead of Heidenheim 2-0 in a game they’d eventually win 2-1. The midfielder won two aerials and recorded one clearance in his time on the pitch, and he wasn’t involved in the only goal that was scored after he entered the pitch. Ingolstadt sit in fourth place, five points back of third and a promotion playoff spot.
Ethan Horvath (Club Brugge, Jupiler League)
Horvath was not in the 18-man roster for Brugge, which started the Championship part of the Jupiler League with a 1-0 win over Genk.
Matt Miazga (Vitesse, on loan from Chelsea, Eredivisie)
Miazga put in a full shift for the national team and Vitesse this week but was hammered on the weekend, 3-0 by relegation-threatened Roda. It was definitely a day to forget, too, as Mizaga was at least partially culpable on all three tallies. In the first half, he was beaten to a header at the near post which resulted in Roda’s opener. The center back was then pulled out of position and passed around twice in the second half, and though it’s tough to blame the defender, who was under a lot of pressure from counter attacks, he probably should have done better on at least one of the tallies. With five games to go, Vitesse sit in seventh, the final Europa League playoff spot.
Shaquell Moore (Levante, La Liga)
Moore was an unused sub for both the national team and Levante, who drew Girona 1-1.
After making his debut appearance as a 77th-minute sub for the USMNT and looking bright in his short stint on the pitch, Novakovich did not make the 18-man roster for Telstar on Monday. His side was smacked 3-0 by second place NEC.
Erik Palmer-Brown (KV Kortrijk, on loan from Manchester City, Jupiler League)
After being an unused sub for the USMNT, Palmer-Brown was brought on for Kortrijk with nine minutes to go and his side up 4-1 over Waasland-Beveren, a scoreline that would hold. He did little of note during his time on the pitch in the first Europa League playoff fixture.
Keaton Parks (Benfica, Primeira Liga)
Parks played 90 minutes for Benfica B in a 3-2 loss to Santa Clara.
Desevio Payne (Excelsior Rotterdam, Eredivisie)
Payne is still recovering from an abdominal injury that kept him out for the end of 2017. He still hasn’t returned to the Excelsior side.
Kenny Saief (Anderlecht, on loan from Gent, Jupiler League)
After going 67 minutes for Dave Saranchan’s USMNT side, Saief logged 90 for his club team in a 2-0 loss to his parent club Gent. The left winger couldn’t muster up the chances to help his team to a win as Gent pulled even with Anderlecht on points in second place and the final Champions League spot.
Jordan Siebatcheu (Reims, Ligue 2)
Siebatcheu returned from a short stint out of the squad due to injury in the 81st minute of Reims’ 2-0 win over Nancy with both goals already on the scoreboard. He didn’t make much of an impact in his 10 minutes on the pitch, but Siebatcheu is still tied for third on the Ligue 2 scoring charts, and Reims remain 11 points clear atop the table with seven games remaining.
Maki Tall (Tours, Ligue 2)
Tall was again not involved this week as Tours earned a 3-1 win over Lorient. Despite getting three points on Friday, Tours are still 10 points adrift at the bottom of the division table.
Juan Pablo Torres (Sporting Lokeren, Jupiler League)
After playing 82 minutes for the USMNT’s U-20 side in a 2-0 loss to the French U-20s (and sitting on the bench for the Americans’ 1-0 win), Torres returned to Lokeren and was not in the squad that beat St. Truiden 1-0.
Timothy Weah (PSG, Ligue 1)
Weah made a brief USMNT debut appearance and showed a few flashes of brilliance, including one pass in which he sent Novakovich clear through on goal. However, he did not appear for PSG in their French League Cup final win over Monaco.
Jonathan Klinsmann (Hertha Berlin, Bundesliga)
Klinsmann did not appear for Hertha II this week.
Josh Sargent (Werder Bremen, Bundesliga)
It didn’t take long for Sargent to find his form this week for Werder Bremen at the U-19 Champions Trophy tournament. Sargent scored nine minutes into the opening game, which Werder would go onto lose 2-1 to FC Salzburg. He would also score later in the group stage against Everton and then again in the third-place match against Huddersfield, which resulted in a 1-0 win and a bronze medal. On top of his exploits for Bremen, Sargent captained the USMNT U-20 side twice this week, playing just over an hour in both a 2-0 loss to and 1-0 win over France’s U-19s.
Isaiah Young (Werder Bremen, Bundesliga)
Young made an appearance on March 23rd, playing the last four minutes for Werder II in a 2-0 loss to Paderborn. He was an unused sub this week against Sportfreunde Lotte.
Brady Scott (FC Koln, Bundesliga)
Scott played 90 minutes for the USMNT U-20s in a 2-0 loss to France. He was also an unused sub for Koln II in a 2-0 loss to Viktoria Koln.
Nick Taitague (Schalke, Bundesliga)
Taitague started and played 90 minutes for Schalke’s U-19s in a 3-1 win over Duisburg’s U-19s.
Timothy Tillman (Bayern Munich, Bundesliga)
Tillman played twice for Bayern’s reserve side over the past two weeks, playing 90 minutes and scoring his side’s second goal in a 5-0 win over Bayreuth before going 81 in a scoreless draw with Memmingen.
Marlon Fossey (Fulham, Championship)
Fulham II hasn’t played since March 10.
Matthew Olosunde (Manchester United, Premier League)
Olosunde did not join United’s reserves on their trip to the US to participate in the Dallas Cup. Rumors continue to swirl about a possible loan move to the MLS, but no such deal has evolved as of yet.
Kyle Scott (Chelsea, Premier League)
Scott did not appear for Chelsea’s reserves in a 3-0 win over Derby County, nor did he appear for the senior side in their 3-1 loss to Tottenham.
Mukwelle Akale (Villarreal, La Liga)
Akale started for Villarreal’s C side in a 2-2 draw with Borriol.
Joshua Perez (Livorno Calcio, Lega Pro, on loan from Fiorentina)
Perez entered Livorno’s 2-0 defeat to Monza in the 76th minute with both goals having already been scored.
