[AMERICANS ABROAD]Emerson Hyndman, the 18-year-old grandson of former FC Dallas coachSchellas Hyndman, became the latest in a long line of Americans to play for Fulham as he made his pro debut, starting on the left side of midfield in the Cottagers' 2-1 loss at Ipswich Town. He is the youngest American to move to England and make his pro league debut.



Fulham's veteran German manager, Felix Magath, has completely overhauled the Cottagers since their relegation from the Premier League, and Hyndman was one of five academy players to start along with five new signings and captain Scott Parker. Magath said he had no qualms about using his youngsters, three of whom made their pro debuts: Jesse Joronen, Cameron Burgess and Hyndman.

“You will see the young players will improve,” he said. “I hope next week in the home game [against Millwall] we have the chance to let the young players go and you will see they will make a good game, and why shouldn’t we win? Everybody wants young players and now I give young players the chance to play and develop and I feel fine, and the players feel fine and are glad, and so we will go on.”

Hyndman moved from Dallas to join the Fulham academy program in 2011. He is the youngest American to move to England and make his pro league debut. Jonathan Spector was one month older when he debuted for Manchester United in 2004.Johann Smith was 19 when he debuted for Bolton Wanderers, and Jozy Altidore was 20 when he first played for Hull City.

He follows in the footsteps of Americans Carlos Bocanegra, Clint Dempsey, Marcus Hahnemann, Eddie Johnson, Kasey Keller, Eddie Lewis and Brian McBride, who all played at Fulham. All were picked to represent the USA at one or more World Cups.
