Rising stars from the USA: American footballers in Europe

by Priyanka SINGH

Football is becoming more and more popular in the United States every year. In almost every MLS season, famous players appear who have managed to make themselves known in Europe. Of course, this makes the league popular and helps it develop. But there are also the opposite cases, when young talents leave the United States for Europe and become famous there. American football only benefits from this. Let’s dwell on this topic in more detail.

Serginho Dest

It so happened that the newcomer to Barcelona did not play in any American club. This is due to the fact that Dest was born in the Netherlands, where he started playing football. But Serginho’s father is American. Internationally, the player represents his father’s homeland and plays for the US national team. The young defender has already played 5 matches for the main team of his country, but has not yet distinguished himself with effective actions.

Dest began his club career with Ajax. Serginho was in the club system from the capital of the Netherlands for eight years. The defender played 38 matches for the first team of Ajax, scored 2 goals and gave 6 assists. In October 2020 Dest moved to Barcelona for 21 million. The American has already played matches for the Catalan club. In Spain, Serginho’s talent and skill are highly regarded. It remains for him to work hard and progress to make a name for himself on another continent and return to his homeland as a real champion.

Christian Pulisic

Pulisic managed to play in the USA before leaving for Europe. At youth level, Christian has competed for Brackley Town, Michigan Rush and Pennsylvania Classics. The player left this club in February 2015, after which he moved as a free agent to Borussia Dortmund. 

In January 2019, Christian joined Chelsea for 64 million. The Blues’ current coach appreciates the player and has high hopes for him. The American has yet to reach his full potential due to injuries. He is one of the brightest representatives of the modern American team. 

Giovanni Reyna

Reyna is the great hope of American football in Europe. The guy is only 18 years old, but he is already one of the main players in Borussia Dortmund. And this is a team that is constantly fighting for the championship title in Germany and regularly plays in the Champions League. Giovanni began his career at New York City. Having never played a single match for his home club, the midfielder moved to Borussia in July 2019 as a free agent. There he will probably continue his career in the near future.
