USMNT abroad: Andrija Novakovich enjoys dominant display

Andrija Novakovich led the way for Frosinone in Serie B with a dominant display. Here is an update from all the USMNT performances around the world.

It was arguably the best performance of the season thus far for Anrdjia Novakovich.

The United States Men’s National Team striker scored one goal and registered two assists for Frosinone in a Serie B match against Empoli. He was involved in three of the club’s four goals on the day as it finished 4-0.

This is the type of performance Novakovich needed after being left off of the USMNT rosters this past summer. If he can keep up his current form then he can reemerge as an option in the player pool at striker.

Elsewhere, Christian Pulisic has not slowed down making an impact at Chelsea. The midfielder would score in Chelsea’s 2-2 draw with Valencia midweek and play all 90 minutes of the loss to West Ham United.
