3. AMERICANS ABROAD: Reading Yanks stifle Manchester United
September 25th, 2006 1:07AM



Goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann of Reading was beaten by Cristiano Ronaldo but the newly promoted team, which also had American Bobby Convey in midfield, held Manchester United to a 1-1 tie.

Two other Americans in the English Premier League, Carlos Bocanegra and Brian McBride, faced a title favorite, but they went down, 2-0, with Fulham against Chelsea.

Claudio Reyna was a late sub and DaMarcus Beasley stayed on the bench as Manchester City won its second game of the season, 2-0, over West Ham, to take some pressure off Coach Stuart Pearce, under fire because the Blues have lost 13 of their last 17 games, dating back to last season.

In Mexico, former U.S. U-20 national team player, Sammy Ochoa, 20, made his seventh appearance of the season in UAG Tecos' 2-1 derby win over Chivas Guadalajara.
