Americans Abroad preview: Will Altidore get to face Howard?


While some Yanks will soon be called to Europe for next week’s friendlies against Colombia and Ireland, there’s a host of them plying their trade in club ball on the continent this weekend.

Who knows if Jozy Altidore will get the chance to score on Tim Howard, but the Everton keeper will almost certainly be between the sticks when the Toffees head into the Stadium of Light to face Sunderland (Watch live on NBCSN at 830am ET Sunday and online via Live Extra).

That’s not the only pair of Yanks on opposing sides this weekend; Oguchi Onyewu and Charlton Athletic host Danny Williams and Reading, while Emerson Hyndman and Fulham welcome in Duane Holmes and Huddersfield Town.

Also, Norway’s season ends on Sunday, with Mix Diskerud perhaps playing his final game for Rosenborg and Bob Bradley keeping Stabaek safe.
