[AMERICANS ABROAD] Midfielder Michael Bradley returned to Borussia Moenchengladbach's lineup as the Bundesliga's second-to-last place team earned its first point in five games. Other young Americans, Freddy Adu and Jozy Altidore, saw a small taste of action for their clubs.

Bradley, making his second Bundesliga appearance since debuting in a 1-0 loss to Hertha Berlin Sept. 30, went the full 90 as Gladbach tied, 2-2, at VfL Bochum, the league's 14th place team. Kicker Magazine graded Bradley a 5 (on a scale in which 1 is the highest and 6 the lowest).

Right back Steve Cherundolo and Hannover 96 fell, 5-2, to newly promoted Hoffenheim. The loss dropped Hannover to 13th place.

In the French league, Adu, who had previously seen 44 minutes in four appearances off the bench, played the final eight minutes for Monaco in its 2-1 loss to Nice. Carlos Bocanegra continued his strong run in the Rennes defense, going the distance in a 0-0 tie at Auxerre.

In Spain, Altidore played the final 10 minutes for Villarreal in its scoreless tie with Espanyol. It was his second La Liga appearance in seven games.

In England, keeper Tim Howard and Everton went down, 3-1, at Arsenal. Keeper Brad Friedel notched a shutout with Aston Villa in its scoreless tie at Portsmouth.

Attacker Clint Dempsey came on for the final 17 minutes of Fulham's scoreless tie with Sunderland.

Jose Francisco Torres, returning from U.S. national team duty, was a halftime sub for Pachuca in its 3-0 loss at Toluca. Defenders Edgar Castillo (Santos) and Daniel Hernandez (Jaguares) each went the distance as Santos prevailed, 1-0.

In Italy's Serie B, Danny Szetela scored for Brescia in its 3-2 win over Triestina.
