Erik Palmer-Brown MLS Homegrown game

Former Sporting Kansas City Homegrown defender Erik Palmer-Brown scored his second goal of the season as part of an all-around standout shift for Austria Wien in Austrian Bundesliga play on Saturday.


Palmer-Brown, who is currently on loan with Austria Wien from Manchester City, got on the end of a corner kick with a pinpoint header for the finish, while also putting up five clearances, winning three duels and completing 88 percent of his passes. Watch it below.

Palmer-Brown, 23, was the youngest signing in SKC history when he inked a Homegrown contract from the club's academy in 2013. He made 20 first-team appearances from 2013-2017, also doing a 17-match stint on loan with Portuguese side Porto B in 2016, before signing with Manchester City in 2018. Since then, he's also been loaned to Belgian side K.V. Kortrijk and Dutch outfit NAC Breda before moving to Austria Wien last year.


He featured extensively for the US U-20s, netting one goal in 17 appearances from 2014-2017, and has two career senior caps for the US men's national team.
