[AMERICANS ABROAD] Michael Bradley's stellar season in the Dutch Eredivisie ended on a sour note when the 20-year-old Heerenveen midfielder was ejected in the 39th minute of a 3-1 loss to Ajax Amsterdam in a playoff for a spot in next season's UEFA Champions League. Bradley, who led the team in scoring with 15 goals, was sent off for his second yellow card with the score 0-0.

Ajax held a 2-1 edge from the first-leg semifinal and advanced 5-2 on aggregate to the final, where it meets Twente.

A crowd of 49,144 at the Amsterdam Arena celebrated goals by Kenneth Perez (45th minute penalty kick), Dennis Rommedahl (48th) and Perez (55) before Danijel Pranjic scored Heerenveen's lone goal in the 67th minute.

Bradley, son of U.S. national team head coach Bob Bradley, has one more season left on his contract with Heerenveen, which is expected to sell him in the offseason in order to get a transfer fee.

In addition to Bradley's 15 goals (in 33 regular-season appearances), which tied him with four other players as the fifth leading scorer in the Dutch top tier, he also scored twice in the UEFA Cup and twice in the Dutch Cup.
