Califf own goal shatters Midtjylland dream
August 29th, 2008 7AM



[AMERICANS ABROAD] An own goal by Dan Califf shattered Danish club Midtjylland's dream of a monumental upset of Manchester City in the UEFA Cup when it allowed the EPL club to even up the two-leg series at 1-1 and send it to a shootout, where Man City prevailed, 4-2.

Carlos Bocanegra had a header cleared off the line in French club Rennes' 2-0 win over Stabaek of Norway that erased a 2-1 deficit from the first leg.

Ryan Guy went the distance in Irish club St. Patrick's 2-1 win over Elfsborg of Sweden that gave it a 4-3 win on aggregate. Both St. Patrick's goals came in the last four minutes.

With Brad Friedel in goal, EPL club Aston Villa cruised into the next round with a 1-1 tie against Iceland's FH Hafnarfjordur in Birmingham that followed a 4-1 win on the road.
