Charlie Davies, the 2006 ACC Offensive Player Of The Year at Boston College, made his pro debut Saturday for Swedish club in a 3-0 win over Trelleborg.

Davies passed on an opportunity to sign with MLS after his junior year at BC to join the AEG club in Sweden. Hammarby, tied for first place after two games in Sweden's Allsvenskan, is a multi-national club with players from nine different countries as well as two Assyrian-Swedes and a Turkish-Swede.

Elsewhere in Scandinavia, Americans Brian West and Cam Weaver scored in the second week of play in Norway.

West needed only three minutes to score his first goal since returning to action after being out of action with Norwegian club Fredrikstad since last July.

The former U.S. international, who ruptured his Achilles tendon last summer, scored on a counterattack to give Fredrikstad an insurance goal a 3-1 win over Lyn Saturday in the Tippeligaen, the top level of Norwegian soccer.

Weaver, the 2006 USL-1 Rookie of the Year, scored his first Adeccoligaen goal since arriving at Second Division Haugesund from the Seattle Sounders. He struck in a 2-1 win over Sparta Sarpsborg.

Former San Jose Earthquakes star Ramiro Corrales is back in Norway after he was deported for failing have a valid work permit last season. He won his appeal to return to Norway and join Brann from relegated HamKam on a three-year contract.

The 30-year-old Corrales came on as a sub in Brann's 1-0 win at Stabaek to open the 2007 but didn't play in Monday's 3-1 victory over Stromsgodset IF. Brann is tied for first place after two games.
