KENYA BROWN - Monday, September 26, 2016
Geoff Cameron was the only American to see action in the Premier League over the weekend as Stoke City shared the points with West Brom.
Stoke City 1-1 West Bromwich Albion
A late goal from Jose Rondon denied Stoke City their first win of the season as both teams shared the spoils at the Britannia Stadium.
It was scoreless at the end of the first half, but both teams appeared to be looking to open up the game. Fortunately, way past the hour mark in the second half there would be a goal.
Joe Allen would pounce on a chance in the 73rd minute and made it count. Xherdan Shaqiri's cross from the right ended up in the area. West Brom's failure to clear allowed the former Liverpool player to take a strike to give Stoke their first lead this season.
However, all celebrations were silenced one minute into stoppage time as Rondon was able to get his head onto a Jonathan Leko corner kick to make sure that the Potters had to wait another weekend to try and get their first win of the season.
Stoke now sit in 19th place with two points.
