Geoff Cameron (Stoke City)
In the season finale at the Britannia, Stoke throttled Liverpool 6-1, with Cameron playing 90 minutes at right back. The American was solid for the Potters, putting in four tackles, three clearances, and two interceptions to earn a 7.3 match rating on whoscored.com. Additionally, Cameron signed a three-year extension with Stoke and looks to be in manager Mark Hughes’ plans moving forward.
Brad Guzan (Aston Villa)
Guzan again sat on the substitute’s bench for Aston Villa’s season-ending defeat to Burnley. This time, rather than Shay Given, who was injured, 22-year-old Jed Steer was in net for Villa, casting just a bit of doubt on Guzan’s future with the club. It’ll be
Tim Howard (Everton)
Though his side lost 1-0 at home to Spurs on the final day, Howard wasn’t culpable for the goal, as Harry Kane deflected a header past the stranded American to the far post for the first-half winner. He also had a superb stop shortly before on Erik Lamela. Both Everton and Howard have had a disappointing campaign, and they will look to rebound next year.
DeAndre Yedlin (Tottenham Hotspur)
Yedlin was an unused substitute as Tottenham won at Goodison Park against Everton, as previously mentioned.
Gedion Zelalem (Arsenal)
Zelalem made his US debut last Tuesday with the U-20s as a substitute in a 2-1 comeback win over Australia. Though he wasn’t directly involved in either goal, Zelalem was on the field for both, and will look to continue to impress in the run-up to the Under-20 World Cup.
Regular national teamers not in the Premier League
Alejandro Bedoya (Nantes)
Bedoya remained sidelined as Nantes lost 1-0 to Lens to finish their season in 14th place.
John Anthony Brooks (Hertha Berlin)
With Brooks absent from the squad, Hertha lost 2-1 to Hoffenheim and narrowly avoided a relegation playoff thanks to results elsewhere. Though the end of his season has been marked by injury, Brooks was terrific when on the field this year and will look to build on that moving forward.
Timothy Chandler (Eintracht Frankfurt)
Chandler played the full 90 minutes as Eintracht finished their campaign with a 2-1 win over Bayer Leverkusen. Though he didn’t do much of note, Chandler’s team finished the season on a positive, jumping to ninth place on the final day.
Julian Green (Hamburg, on loan from Bayern Munich)
As has been the case every week since the winter break, Green was not selected in the Hamburg side that won 2-0 over Schalke to give itself a chance in the relegation playoff.
Fabian Johnson (Borussia Monchengladbach)
Johnson came off the bench as Monchengladbach
lost 3-1 to Augsburg to end their season. He came
Aron Johannsson (AZ Alkmaar)
The Eredivisie season finished on May 17, with Johannsson’s Alkmaar side finishing in third place and securing a berth in the Europa League.
Others on the USMNT fringes (or other notables)
Emerson Hyndman (Fulham)
The Championship season wrapped up on May 2, with Hyndman’s Fulham team finishing in 17th.
Eric Lichaj (Nottingham Forest)
The Championship season wrapped up on May 2, with Lichaj’s Nottingham Forest team finishing in 14th.
Tim Ream (Bolton Wanderers)
The Championship season wrapped up on May 2, with Ream’s Bolton side finishing in 18th.
Danny Williams (Reading)
The Championship season wrapped up on May 2, with Williams’ Reading side finishing in 19th.
Terrence Boyd (RB Leipzig)
Boyd suffered an ACL tear in a game against Ingolstadt in December which will likely keep him out for the rest of the season.
Bobby Wood (Erzgebirge Aue)
Erzgebirge Aue went out of the 2. Bundesliga in heartbreaking fashion, drawing 2-2 with Heidenheim to confirm their relegation. Wood went 87 minutes and played a role in a comeback after his side trailed 2-0, but it wasn’t enough for Aue to avoid the drop.
Rubio Rubin (FC Utrecht)
The Eredivisie season finished on May 17, with Rubio’s Utrecht side finishing in 11th place.
Alfredo Morales (Ingolstadt)
Having already helped his team secure promotion to the Bundesliga, Morales took care of some other business this week, signing a three-year extension with Ingolstadt. His contract was set to expire after this season, so it’s fantastic to see that Ingolstadt considers Morales a piece of the Bundesliga future of the club.
Jerome Kiesewetter (VfB Stuttgart)
Playing for the second straight week after a long layoff, Kiesewetter went 67 minutes in Stuttgart II’s 3-2 win over Energie Cottbus. The win vaulted Stuttgart II to 13th in the 3. Bundesliga, but, more importantly for Kiesewetter moving forward, the senior squad defeated Paderborn to stave off relegation. Kiesewetter could get more looks in Stuttgart’s side next season, and, if he does, they’ll come for a top-flight team.
