[AMERICANS ABROAD] Seven of the 13 foreign-based players on the U.S. roster for Wednesday's World Cup qualifier against Mexico saw action for their clubs last weekend. Among those who hit the field were Landon Donovan at Bayern Munich and midfielder Jose Francisco Torres, who helped Pachuca to a 3-1 win at Club America in Azteca Stadium.

GOALKEEPERS
Tim Howard (Everton/ENG)

Made his 25th start of the season in a 3-0 win over Bolton. Sixth-place Everton has lost just three times in its last 20 EPL games.

Brad Guzan (Aston Villa/ENG)
Watched from the bench as former U.S. national team keeper Brad Friedel helped Villa move into third place of the EPL with a 2-0 win at Blackburn. Guzan did play last Wednesday in Aston Villa's 3-1 win FA Cup win over Doncaster

DEFENDERS
Carlos Bocanegra (Rennes/FRA)

Played the full 90 and was yellow-carded in the 21st minute of a 1-0 loss to Le Havre. It was the U.S. captain's 23rd straight start.

Oguchi Onyewu (Standard Liege/BEL)
Manned the defending champ's central defense, as usual, in Friday's 2-0 win against KV Kortrijk that keeps Standard Liege in first place by two points.

Heath Pearce (Hansa Rostock/GER)
Heath Pearce did not suit up for his second division club's 3-3 tie with Alemania Aachen. The left back last saw action for 16th-place Rostock on Dec. 14.

Danny Califf (FC Midtjylland/DEN)
The Danish season is on winter break.

MIDFIELDERS
Jose Francisco Torres (Pachuca/MEX)

The 21-year-old went the full 90 as Pachuca celebrated a convicing 3-1 win at Club America. He's played in all four Clausura 2009 games (three wins, one tie).

 

Michael Bradley (Borussia Moenchengladbach/GER)
Made his 13th appearance and 11th start of the season as last-place Gladbach ended a five-game losing streak by tying first-place Hoffenheim, 1-1. Bradley received a yellow card for foul play.

DaMarcus Beasley (Glasgow Rangers/SCO)
Scottish Cup game on Sunday was postponed. Beasley scored for Rangers on Wednesday in a friendly against AC Milan, but hasn't seen league action for since Dec. 6.

FORWARDS
Landon Donovan (Bayern Munich/GER).

Made his second straight Bundesliga appearance since joining Bayern on loan. Donovan was a 72nd sub in a 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund in front of 69,000 fans in Munich - playing five more minutes than he did last week against Hamburg SV. Against Dortmund, Donovan replaced Italian Luca Toni with the score tied 1-1. Two late strikes by Miroslav Klose gave Bayern the win.

Clint Dempsey (Fulham/ENG)
Went the distance and was yellow carded for a foul in Fulham's 0-0 draw with Wigan on Saturday. It marked his 20th EPL appearance this season.

Jozy Altidore (Xerez/SPAIN)
Has yet to debut for Spanish second division Xerez, which took him on loan from Villarreal two weeks ago. He didn't make the bench for Xerex's 2-0 win against Albacete

Charlie Davies (Hammarby IF/SWE)
The Swedish season is on winter break.
