ENGLAND. Jonathan Spector, the 23-year-old right back whose only previous appearance this season came in December, played 85 minutes for West Ham in its 2-1 loss to Bolton. Spector, who joined Manchester United in 2003, has been plagued by injuries after making 26 appearances last season.

Right back Steve Cherundolo, recovering from a hip injury, played the final four minutes for Hannover. Michael Bradley played the whole game for Gladbach, which won its first game since November and is now on a three-game unbeaten streak. Last-place Gladbach is now just three points inside the relegation zone.

FRANCE. Carlos Bocanegra kept his streak alive of starting every Rennes game this season in a 1-0 win over Nice. Freddy Adu didn't suit up for Monaco's 2-1 loss to Lille.

BELGIUM. Oguchi Onyewu played 90 minutes for defending champ Standard Liege as fell 4-2 win to Anderlecht.
