Seven U.S. Men’s National Team players called into camp this week by head coach Gregg Berhalter will be available for match action on their respective teams across three leagues – Dutch Eredivisie, the Bundesliga, and LALIGA – this weekend on ESPN+ and ESPN Deportes. The stars: Sergiño Dest, Ricardo Pepi, and Malik Tillman (PSV Eindhoven), Kevin Paredes (Wolfsburg), Joe Scally (Borussia Mönchengladbach), Luca de la Torre (Celta de Vigo), and Brenden Aaronson (Union Berlin).
LALIGA’s teenage prodigy Lamine Yamal, and other matchups
Lamine Yamal was picked to start for FC Barcelona after teammate Raphinha got a red card in the team’s 2023-24 season opener. In his second straight start at Villarreal last Sunday, the 16-year-old forward was named MVP in a thrilling 4-3 comeback victory at his first back-to-back senior team starts. If selected and he scores in this Sunday’s match at Osasuna (3 p.m. ET, ESPN+ and ESPN Deportes), Yamal will make history as Barcelona’s youngest goal scorer.
