[AMERICANS ABROAD] Defender Oguchi Onyewu's headed goal with four minutes left gave Standard Liege a 1-0 win over Excelsior Mouscron to solidify its lead at the top of the Belgian Jupiler League to nine points. In the Netherlands last weekend, Heerenveen, with Michael Bradley, helped its chances to qualify for the UEFA Champions League qualification playoffs.

It was Onyewu's seventh league goal in 99 games for Standard Liege. The win last weekend was its 19th of the season and, with 10 ties, Standard Liege remains undefeated. Its nearest rival is Anderlecht.

Heerenveen, with Bradley going the full 90, came from behind to win at Willem II, 3-2.

The second- through fifth-place finishers in the Dutch Eredivisie play off for one Champions League spot. With two games left, Heereneveen is in fifth place, ahead of sixth-place Feyenoord thanks to a superior goal difference.
