Yanks Abroad: Richie Ledezma gets assist in PSV debut

Richie Ledezma made his Dutch Eredivisie debut, assisting on PSV's third goal by New Zealand international Ryan Thomas shortly after he entered the game in the 4-0 win over ADO Den Haag.



Ledezma had dressed for the first two games in the Europa League. On Thursday, PSV was missing 11 players, seven due to COVID-19, for its 2-1 win at Omonia Nicosia.

The 20-year-old Arizonan is in his second full season at PSV after leaving the Real Salt Lake academy. He has played 32 games and scored six goals for Jong PSV in the Dutch second division, but competition on the first team is fierce.

PSV's young attacking talent includes 21-year-old Dutch international Donyell Malen, and a pair of 18-year-olds, Mohamed Ihattaren and Chukwunonso Madueke.

In the offseason, PSV added Mario Goetze, scorer of the winning goal for Germany in the 2014 World Cup final.
