Episode Info: On this episode of the Yanks Abroad Podcast, host Christopher McCollum is joined by regular panelists Brian Sciaretta, Jamie Hill and John Kretlow, as well as special guest Danijal Brkovic, an American forward for FK Zeljeznicar, sitting in the Bosnian Premier League's top spot. The first segment of the show features Brkovic talking about soccer and life in Bosnia, his experiences with his new team as well as his transition from a high school player in Binghamton, NY to a professional player for Velez Mostar and participating in one of Europe's most dangerous derbies against Zrinjski Mostar. The second segment of the show is taken up with highlights and lowlights of recent results in England and Germany, with attention paid to Aston Villa's victory over Liverpool, and the continued woes of Hoffenheim. From there, the discussion moves to Oguchi Onyewu's goal for Malaga against Eibar in Copa del Rey action, and then to Jozy Altidore's run of three goals in the past four days. The panel moves on to a brief talk about Aron Johansson and his acceptance of an offer to attend the January camp for the National Team as a spectator to observe the program, before a hernia forced him to withdraw in order to focus on healing. The show is concluded with a discussion of Mikkel Diskerud's potential move to the Portland Timbers, and what that move would mean for him, the team, and the league.
