ENGLISH FA CUP. Everton keeper Tim Howard let a Steven Gerrard shot squirm past him at the near post in a 1-1 tie with Liverpool in fourth round play, but the American redeemed himself minutes later with a spectacular save on Gerrard's next effort. Defender Jay DeMerit struck with a volley to open Watford's scoring in a 4-3 win over Crystal Palace. Clint Dempsey went the full 90 and assisted with a cross on Fulham's first goal in a 4-2 win over non-league Kettering Town. Keeper Brad Friedel and Aston Villa settled for a scoreless tie with Doncaster.

BELGIAN LEAGUE. Central defender Oguchi Onyewu helped Standard Liege keep Westerlo at bay after the visitors took a 1-0 lead in the sixth minute that held for the final score and put defending champ Liege in first place, moving two points ahead of Anderlecht.

FRENCH CUP. Freddy Adu didn't suit up for Monaco, which beat Riviera, 1-0, in the round of 16. Defender Carlos Bocanegra helped Rennes reach the quarterfinals with a 2-0 win over St. Etienne.

Two Americans met on the second game day of the Clausura 2009 when San Luis, with Michael Orozco going the full 90, fell, 2-1, to Pachuca, for which Jose Francisco Torres was a 78th minute sub. Club America, with Edgar Castillo going the distance in his second straight game for his new club, tied Toluca, 2-2.

SPAIN. Jozy Altidore didn't suit up for Villarreal's 1-1 tie with Osasuna, but New Jersey product Giuseppi Rossi scored for the Yellow Submarine, his ninth goal of the season.

SCOTLAND. Neither DaMarcus Bealsey nor Maurice Edu suited up for Glasgow Rangers, which tied Aberdeen, 0-0.
