5. U.S. ABROAD: Keller's season may be over

Kasey Keller may have played his last game of the season for Borussia Moenchengladbach. The 37-year-old goalkeeper suffered a muscle tear shortly before Hamburg SV's Paulo Guerrero scored a 90th minute gamewinner to down last-place Gladbach, 1-0. Keller, who joined Gladbach in January 2005 and has played 78 games for the club, is expected to be sidelined for four to six weeks. Gladbach, with five games left, is seven points inside the relegation zone.

Defender Steve Cherundolo scored the equalizer for Hannover 96 with a shot that flew off the crossbar and into the net but Hannover fell, 2-1, at VfB Stuttgart because of a 74th minute own goal. The strike was Cherundolo's fifth goal in a 155 German First Division games.

Kamani Hill came off the bench for Wolfsburg against Energie Cottbus as his team trailed, 3-1. Wolfsburg lost, 3-2. It was 21-year-old's fifth First Division appearance, all off the bench, since joining Wolfsburg early this year.

In the German Second Division, 1860 Munich's Gregg Berhalter and Josh Wolff both went the full 90 in a 3-0 loss at Paderborn. The club, which had promotion hopes going into the season, is 10th place, 11 points below the promotion zone.

For the second time this season, four Americans were on the field at the same time in an English Premier League game. Marcus Hahnemann was outstanding in goal for Reading, which beat Fulham, 1-0, in the Cottagers' first game under Lawrie Sanchez. Sanchez started Americans Brian McBride and Carlos Bocanegra, and Clint Dempsey came off the bench midway through the second half.

Other players in EPL action were DaMarcus Beasley, who played the entire 90 minutes and hit the woodwork in Manchester City's 0-0 tie with Liverpool, Tim Howard, who was in goal for Everton's 2-1 victory over Charlton that extended its unbeaten streak to seven games, and Oguchi Onyewu, who came on the first half of Newcastle's 2-1 loss at Portsmouth.

Americans Brad Friedel (Blackburn) and Jay DeMerit (Watford) started in the semifinals of the FA Cup, both in losing efforts. Blackburn fell to Chelsea, 2-1, in overtime on Sunday. The day before, DeMerit and his Watford teammates fell to Manchester United, 4-1.
