[AMERICANS ABROAD]It was a bad weekend of American goalkeepers in Europe, but Clint Dempseycreated a goal for Fulham (in peculiar fashion). Besides Charlie Davies' two strikes in France, Michael Orozco hit the net in Mexico. In Germany, U.S. internationals were "quarantined" because of Landon Donovan's swine flu problem.

ENGLAND.Goalkeeper Tim Howard got shelled as Arsenal thumped Everton, 6-1. Keeper Brad Friedel also came out on the losing end with Aston Villa, going down 2-0 to Wigan. Keeper Marcus Hahnemann watched from the bench as his Wolverhampton Wanderers lost 2-0 to West Ham, for which defender Jonathan Spector played the final 25 minutes.

Also watching was striker Jozy Altidore, who didn't make the bench for his new club Hull City in a 2-1 loss to Chelsea.

Clint Dempsey went the full 90 in Fulham's 1-0 over Portsmouth and got an assist of sorts as his 25-yard shot hit Bobby Zamora in the back and deflected into the goal.[VIDEO]

In the English second division, Jay DeMerit went the full 90 for Watford in a 2-0 loss to Sheffield United.

GERMANY.Borussia Moenchglabach and Hannover 96 kept Michael Bradley and Steve Cherundolo, respectively, out of their lineups after they returned from the USA loss to Mexico on Wednesday with news that teammate Landon Donovan had been diagnosed with swine flu even though neither had tested positive. The German media reported they had been "quarantined." Gladbach won, 2-1, at Hertha Berlin. Hannover, for which Sal Zizzo played the final 14 minutes tied, 1-1, with Mainz on Saturday.

In the second division, Luis Robles, who saw action for the USA at the Gold Cup thanks to having won the starting keeper role at Kaiserslautern, stayed on the bench in a 1-0 win at Rot-Weiss Ahlen.

Kenny Cooper played 72 minutes for 1860 Munich in a 2-1 loss at Hansa Rostock. Keeper David Yeldell helped Koblenz beat Arminia Bielefeld, 3-2.

FRANCE.Three days after scoring for the USA against Mexico at Azteca Stadium, Charlie Davies scored twice for Sochaux -- his first two goals in France's Ligue 1 -- in a 3-2 loss to defending champion Bordeaux. In his second appearance, Davies came off the bench at halftime. Defender Carlos Bocanegra played 90 minutes in Rennes' 1-1 tie at Nice.
