ENGLAND. Everton, with Tim Howard in goal, downed Aston Villa (Brad Friedel), 3-1 in the fifth round of the FA Cup. Both Howard and Friedel conceded goals from the penalty spot. With the score 2-1, Howard made on excellent save off a John Carew effort. Clint Dempsey was a 60th minute sub in Fulham's 1-1 tie at Swansea.

SPAIN. After the third game since he joined second division Xerez on loan from Villarreal, Jozy Altidore has yet to see action. First-place Xerez beat Salamanca, 2-1.

Carlos Bocanegra went the distance for Rennes in a 1-1 tie with Nancy. Freddy Adu didn't suit up for Monaco's 1-0 loss to Marseille.
