Michael Bradley scores; EPL relegation woes
[AMERICANS ABROAD] Midfielder Michael Bradley headed home Dutch club Heerenveen's final goal in a 4-0 win over AZ. It was the 20-year-old's eighth league goal of the season. In England, keeper Tim Howard slapped away a powerful header from Wigan's Marcus Bent to help Everton win, 2-1, and move into fourth place of the English Premier League. Three EPL clubs with Americans saw their relegation woes increase this weekend.
Reading goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann was beaten by Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo in a 2-0 loss to Manchester United. Reading is in 14th place, two points above the drop zone.
Hahnemann did make several spectacular saves to prevent a bigger loss. Bobby Convey played the full 90 for Reading.
Fulham remained second-to-last, five points in the relegation zone, with a 3-0 loss to Arsenal. Carlos Bocanegra and Clint Dempsey went the full 90 for Fulham.
Doomed last-place Derby (Eddie Lewis, 58 minutes) fell 3-0 to Portsmouth.
Goalkeeper Brad Friedel and ninth-place Blackburn tied 1-1 with Middlesbrough.
