Spin That Record

Caught this yesterday...

... so it seemed a fine time to update another of the Americans Abroad stat categories I'll get back to at some point. I will roll on with a few more years of the "American Abroad of the Year" instant retrospective, but this bumped the line momentarily.

As you've just seen we have a new leader at the top. Everyone marked with an asterisk is active in Europe, and though I cut the list proper off at 10 several (mostly young) active players have been added. Seems likely many of those total will grow in the foreseeable future. On with the count...

Ahem, not to cast stones from my glass house, but you forgot the legend in his own mind, Jovan Kirovski. USMNT fans of a certain age remember how much we used to hope this guy was going to be our first superstar. He won a CL medal with Dortmund and played in that CL campaign. I bet you a Ted Drewes I’m right.

Kirovski played in five UEFA cup games, so he was below the non-active cutoff for this particular list.
