by Paul Kennedy, September 18th, 2008 7AM

Their teammate on the U.S. defense, Carlos Bocanegra, is expected to start for French club Rennes against Twente.

Neven Subotic, who has three goals in four Bundesliga games for Borussia Dortmund, is set to make his European debut against Italy's Udinese.

In Tuesday's action, California Ryan Guy started for Irish upstart St. Patrick's in its 2-0 loss to Hertha Berlin.
