4. U.S. ABROAD: Hahnemann's Reading climbs to seventh
Marcus Hahnemann was the only American to play in a winning effort on Tuesday night as top-flight league action resumed in England and Germany.
Hahnemann was in goal as Reading beat Wigan, 3-2, to move into seventh place ahead of idle Everton in the English Premier League. Hahnemann could do nothing about Emile Heskey's
third-minute goal, but he failed to hold on to Ryan Taylor's free kick that Dutchman Denny Landzaat put away in the 90th minute. Wigan has now lost a club record eight straight league games.
After scoring in four of his last five games, Brian McBride was held scoreless as Fulham lost, 2-0, at Sheffield United. Clint Dempsey came off the bench in his second EPL appearance for Fulham. Elsewhere, Jonathan Spector played the entire 90 minutes at right back in a losing effort as relegation-threatened West Ham lost to Liverpool, 2-1, at Upton Park.
In Germany's Bundesliga, Kasey Keller
was in goal as Borussia Moenchengladbach, another relegation
candidate, settled for a scoreless draw with Nuremberg. The tie left
Gladbach in 16th place, three points behind Bochum, which held Bayern
Munich to a 0-0 tie in Munich. Recent signing Kamani Hill made his home debut for
Wolfsburg, coming off the bench after all the goals were scored in a
2-2 tie with Eintracht Frankfurt.
