Foreign action for Americans ahead of Mexico clash

[AMERICANS ABROAD] A handful of the Americans on the U.S. roster for its World Cup qualifier against Mexico on Wednesday saw league action last weekend, in Germany and France (whose 2009-10 seasons got underway), and in Denmark and Mexico.

GERMANY. Borussia Moenchengladbach's Michael Bradley played the first 70 minutes, and was yellow-carded, in a 3-3 tie with VfL Bochum, which like Gladbach narrowly escaped relegation last season. Bochum came back from a three-goal deficit. All six goals had been scored when Bradley left the game. Gladbach played a man-down for the last half-hour.

Right back Steve Cherundolo was also cautioned, while going the full 90 for Hannover in a 1-0 loss at Hertha Berlin.

FRANCE. Defender Carlos Bocanegra went the full 90 in Rennes' 3-0 win over promoted Boulogne.

Striker Charlie Davies came on in 71st minute for Sochaux in its 1-0 win at Auxerre.

MEXICO. Midfielder Jose Francisco Torres came on for Pachuca in the 53rd minute of a 2-0 win at Atlante. He entered the game with the score 1-0.

Torres is the U.S. player who should be best acclimated to Mexico City's altitude. Pachuca lies nearly 8,000 feet above sea level, higher than Mexico City (7,349 feet).

DENMARK. Benny Feilhaber went the full 90 for Aarhus in a 2-1 win over HB Koge.

ENGLAND. Keeper Tim Howard had no chance on JJ Luque's free-kick goal in Everton's 2-1 win over Spanish La Liga club Malaga, which went down, 2-1, in the friendly.
