[AMERICANS ABROAD] Clint Dempsey equalized and tagged on the final goal in Fulham's 3-1 win over Manchester City to up his EPL season total to seven goals. Two other Americans hit the net last weekend.

Dempsey scored in the 50th minute by side-footing home a 16-yard shot and in the 83rd minute with a toe-poke from six yards. The win marked Fulham's second straight on the road after 14 games without an away victory. It also moved the Cottagers up to eighth place.

Also scoring twice last weekend was Matt Taylor, in German Second Division Koblenz's 3-2 win over 1860 Munich. The other American to score was Charlie Davies, who connected for his Swedish club Hammarby in a 2-1 loss to Gefle.

Back in the EPL, two American keepers faced off and got shelled on each end as Everton (Tim Howard) tied 3-3 with Aston Villa (Brad Friedel).

In the German first division, Michael Bradley went the full 90 as Borussia Moenchengladbach's winless streak hit three games with a 2-1 loss to league leader Wolfsburg. Gladbach is one point inside the relegation zone.

Faring much better is Oguchi Onyewu's Standard Liege, which remained tied for the Belgian first division lead with 1-0 win over Lokeren. Onyewu played the whole game. His U.S. backline mate Carlos Bocanegra helped Rennes to a 1-0 win over Saint-Etienne in the French league.

In Scotland, Maurice Edu went the distance for Glasgow Rangers in a 3-1 win over Motherwell while DaMarcus Beasley sat out injured.

In Mexico, Jose Francisco Torres played the first half of Pachuca's 3-1 win over Toluca.
