3. AMERICANS ABROAD: Beasley makes EPL debut
September 18th, 2006 2:54PM



DaMarcus Beasley came on as a 35th-minute sub to make his English Premier League debut for Manchester City, which is loaning him from PSV Eindhoven. Claudio Reyna remained on the bench as Manchester City fell, 4-2, to Blackburn, whose keeper, Brad Friedel, was beaten on an own goal and a one-on-one. Beasley committed the foul that led to a David Bentley free-kick goal. Manchester City has won just two of its last 15 games, dating back to last season. ... Bobby Convey assisted with a lofted through ball and keeper Marcus Hahnemann was rarely tested as Reading beat Sheffield United, 2-1, to move into sixth place.

In Germany, Hannover's three-game season-opening losing streak ended with a 2-1 win over Wolfsburg. Steve Cherundolo was back in the starting lineup after being used as a sub in the previous game. For the first time since joining Hamburg SV last season, Benny Feilhaber dressed for a First Division game, but he did not see action in 1-0 loss to Borussia Dortmund. He's played seven Third Division games this season.

In Norway's Second Division, Aalesund, with Adin Brown in goal, beat Honefoss, 5-3, to return to first place and it sits 10 points within the promotion zone. ... In Denmark, Aalborg, for whom Danny Califf starts in defense, saw its first-place lead shrink to a point after losing, 1-0, to Odense.
