Beasley denied winner; Adu makes French debut

[AMERICANS IN EUROPE] Freddy Adu, fresh off Olympic duty, made his French Ligue 1 debut as a 86th minute sub for Monaco in its 1-1 tie with Caen. DaMarcus Beasley, who played in Wednesday's World Cup qualifier, appeared to have scored a stoppage-time winner for Glasgow Rangers but the effort was called offside (TV replays suggest the call was a bad one) in a 1-1 tie with Aberdeen. Steve Cherundolo, ejected in midweek action for the USA, took little time to get another card when he returned to Germany. Borussia Dortmund defender Neven Subotic helped keep Bayern Munich winless after two games in a 1-1 tie in Dortmund. For more on American performances in Europe. ...

Cherundolo and Hannover 96 are still looking for their first win after their second game of the season ended 0-0 with Energie Cottbus. The game marked the first time that perennial starter Cherundolo, who entered the game in the 72nd minute, was used off the bench since 2003.

Cherundolo, who received a yellow/red ejection in the USA's 1-0 win over Guatemala on Wednesday, was yellow-carded two minutes after he took the field for Hannover.

In France, where Adu started the latest chapter of his career after a season with Portugal's Benfica, defender Carlos Bocanegra went the full 90 for Rennes in a 2-1 win over Lille.

2008 Olympian Danny Szetela played the full 120 minutes for second-tier Brescia in a 2-1 overtime win over Serie A Torino in the third round of the Coppa Italia.

In Belgium, Oguchi Onyewu -- like Cherundolo and Beasley coming off a midweek World Cup qualifying game - was used off the bench (74th minute) instead of taking his usual starting role in the central defense.

Onyewu's Standard Liege, the defending champ, downed Westerlo, 3-1, in their season opener.
