Cherundolo back in action
[AMERICANS ABROAD] Steve Cherundolo, who was reported injured and unavailable for the USA's 2-2 tie with Mexico last Wednesday, played the full 90 minutes for Hannover 96 in its German Bundesliga 2-2 tie with Karlsruhe.
Cherundolo's replacement at right back, Drew Moor, was the U.S. defender marking Jonny Magallon when he scored both of Mexico's goals.
Clint Dempsey, who played 63 minutes for the USA against Mexico, came close to scoring but shot wide on his best chance for struggling Fulham, which lost at Middlesbrough, 1-0, in the English Premier League and is now three points deep in the relegation zone.
Brian McBride was a 64th minute sub for Fulham, while Carlos Bocanegra, who played the whole game against Mexico, remained on the bench.
In a face-off between U.S. goalkeepers, fourth-place Everton (Tim Howard) downed Reading (Marcus Hahnemann), 1-0. Reading lost its seventh straight game and fell into the relegation zone because of an inferior goal difference to Birmingham. Reading's Bobby Convey, who started for the USA on Wednesday, did not see action.
In Italy, Danny Szetela made his Serie B debut as a late sub in Brescia's 4-2 win at Piacenza. Szetela joined Brescia on loan from Racing Santander after failing to break into the Spanish First Division club's first team.
