As we get ready to add a UEFA Champions League trophy to the US player trophy case in Europe, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the incredible year the players have had in a historic season as a group. Literally just writing this list of players and the clubs they play for is exciting, historically incredible.

Christian Pulisic of Chelsea and Zack Steffen of Manchester City go head-to-head on Saturday at 3pm EST in an all-English (and all-American) UEFA Champions League final. That will add the final trophy on the European season. 

 Below are the list of Americans who won trophies and they have done far more than just signed with the clubs. These players have contributed in incredible ways both in the seasons and for some key games.  Let’s take a look at Americans with European trophies.
