[AMERICANS ABROAD] Hopes remain alive for Americans to lift titles in Mexico, Scotland and Belgium while, despite a big loss, Michael Bradley's chances of staying in the top tier in Germany look very good.

MEXICO. Jose Francisco Torres, who scored in Pachuca's 3-1 first-leg quarterfinal win over Jaguares, played the the final 29 minutes in its 2-0 second-leg victory that sends Los Tuzos into the semifinals against Indios. Fellow Texan Marco Vidal went the full 90 for Indios in its scoreless tie with Toluca that sent Indios through, 1-0, on aggregate. A third Texas product, Ramon Nunez, who plays for Honduras, started and played 78 minutes for Puebla as it tied Monterrey, 2-2, and advanced 5-3 on aggregate to meet Pumas.

BELGIUM. Defending champ Standard Liege, with defender Oguchi Onyewu, beat Gent, 1-0, which means Standard Liege will face Anderlecht in a playoff for the title.

SCOTLAND. For Glasgow Rangers, Maurice Edu went the full 90 (DaMarcus Bealsey didn't see action) in a 2-1 win over Aberdeen. Combined with Celtic's scoreless tie with Hibernian, the result means Rangers can clinch the title with a win in its final game.

GERMANY. Borussia Moenchengladbach, with Michael Bradley in midfield, was thumped, 5-0, by Bayer Leverkusen, but stayed three points above the relegation zone with one game left thanks to the losses by its relegation-threatened rivals -- Energie Cottbus and Arminia Bielefeld. Gladbach's superior goal difference means it will maintain its first-division status unless it succumbs to another rout when it faces Borussia Dortmund next weekend and Bielefeld or Cottbus goes on a goal spree.

ENGLAND. Clint Dempsey sparked the counterattack for Fulham's goal in its 1-0 win at Newcastle that puts Fulham in position to earn a spot in the Europa League (nee UEFA Cup) with a tie in its final game of the season, against Everton.
