[AMERICAN IN SPAIN] New Jersey product Giuseppe Rossi of Villarreal scored his fifth goal of the Spanish La Liga season in a 3-2 loss at Osasuna. The 20-year-old Rossi, born in Teaneck, N.J., and raised in Clifton, N.J., left home at age 13 to join Italian club Parma's youth program. He then played for Manchester United and Newcastle in the EPL and Parma in Italy's Serie A, before joining Villarreal this season.

Rossi, who was born to Italian immigrants, has dual citizenship and has turned down invitations to play for America while appearing for Italian youth national teams.
