USA 2737 43 Top 5 Americans Abroad - August 21-26 31286370 Stoked! Stoked%21 USA

There was a time, not too long ago, when Fulham, Everton and Aston Villa were the Barclay’s Premier League teams considered the most likely to sign American players and give them a real chance to play in England.

You can now add a third team to that group. Stoke City joined the short list of teams with multiple American players with the recent acquisitions of Geoff Cameron and Maurice Edu. In the same weekend Edu came to terms with the Potters, Cameron made his debut for Stoke in Sunday’s scoreless draw vs. Arsenal.

While Cameron’s move to Stoke was a long time in the making, Edu’s move happened more quickly, with US national team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann putting in a good word with Stoke’s manager. The move comes less than two weeks after Edu and Cameron combined in central defense in the U.S. team’s 1-0 victory against Mexico in Estadio Azteca.

Cameron’s club debut wasn’t the only one for a US national team player this weekend. Michael Bradley earned the start for AS Roma in their match 2-2 draw against Catania. The American midfielder enjoyed a dream Serie A debut for Roma, assisting on the game-tying goal by Nico Lopez in the 90th minute.

Both Edgar Castillo and Joe Corona were on the US team that beat Mexico at Azteca recently, and both tasted victory at Azteca yet again in Club Tijuana’s 1-0 victory against Club America.

It wasn’t all good news for Americans playing overseas. Tim Ream failed to make an appearance in either of Bolton’s matches on the weekend and Brad Guzan remained on the subs bunch in Aston Villa’s latest loss, a 3-1 defeat against Everton. On the bright side for the Americans at Villa, Eric Lichaj did come off the bench and play 31 minutes against Everton.

Here are this weekend’s top Americans Abroad:

Starting on the right wing in AS Roma’s 4-3-3, Bradley made his Serie A debut for Roma on Sunday in a 2-2 draw against Catania. Playing alongside Daniele DeRossi in midfield, Bradley set up the game-tying goal by Nico Lopez in the 90th minute to help the Romans secure a point in a match that saw some terrible calls go against them.

USA 2737 43 Top 5 Americans Abroad - August 21-26 31286368 Brad Friedel, Tottenham Brad+Friedel%2C+Tottenham USA

The 41-year-old legend made a handful of outstanding saves in Tottenham’s 1-1 draw vs. West Brom on Saturday. Though Tottenham gave up the lead late, they owe the point they did manage to secure to Friedel, who made a series of difficult saves in the second half as West Brom took control of the match.

USA 2737 43 Top 5 Americans Abroad - August 21-26 31286367 Geoff Cameron, Stoke City Geoff+Cameron%2C+Stoke+City USA

Despite missing a week of training with Stoke while his paperwork was being finalized for his transfer, Cameron arrived on Friday and made his way into the Stoke starting lineup. He played a solid 90 minutes in Stoke’s scoreless draw against Arsenal on Sunday. Cameron partnered with Glenn Whelan in central midfield and helped contain Arsenal’s dangerous creative players in a very promising debut.

USA 2737 43 Top 5 Americans Abroad - August 21-26 31286369 Josh Gatt, Molde Josh+Gatt%2C+Molde USA

The young winger, who turns 21 on Wednesday, continues to enjoy success with Norwegian side Molde, scoring the eventual game-winning goal in his team’s 2-0 victory against Valarenga on Sunday. Having recently recovered from a hamstring injury, Gatt has been outstanding since returning, scoring in both matches he’s played in. He has scored six goals this season for the reigning Norwegian champions and is looking more and more like a strong candidate for a U.S. national team call-up soon.

USA 2737 43 Top 5 Americans Abroad - August 21-26 31284079 Edgar Castillo, Club Tijuana Edgar+Castillo%2C+Club+Tijuana USA

Just ten days after he started in the U.S. national team’s historic 1-0 victory against Mexico (marking the first U.S. victory at Azteca), Castillo was at Azteca yet again, taking part in another upset as Club Tijuana beat Club America, 1-0. Castillo played a full 90 minutes for Tijuana, which moved up to second place in the Mexican League with the victory.
