Two defenders red-carded; Freddy & Eddie see time
October 5th, 2009 7:01AM



[AMERICANS ABROAD] Carlos Bocanegra (France) and Michael Orozco (Mexico) were red-carded. Michael Bradley got his first Bundesliga start since late August. Freddy Adu made his league debut for Belenenses and Eddie Johnson got a rare few minutes of action for Fulham.

Eddie Johnson, the 25-year-old striker whose only previous EPL action this season came when he played 14 minutes for Fulham in late August, played the final eight minutes of the Cottagers 2-2 tie with West Ham, whose American defender Jonathan Spector stayed on the bench. Fulham's Clint Dempsey played the first 84 minutes. Keeper Tim Howard went the full 90 for Everton in a 1-1 tie with Stoke City. Jozy Altidore didn't get off the bench for Hull City in its 2-1 win over Wigan.

FRANCE. Rennes defender Carlos Bocanegra was ejected in the 16th minute for tugging on Dennis Oliech as the Auxerre attacker headed toward the goal in Rennes' 1-0 loss to Auxerre. Striker Charlie Davies went the distance for Sochaux in a 1-0 win over Le Mans.

PORTUGAL. Freddy Adu came off the bench in the 65th minute of Belenenses' sixth game of the season, a 0-0 tie with Sporting Lisbon, to make his league debut. Adu had seen action off the bench in a league cup game two weeks ago.

GERMANY. Michael Bradley was back in the starting lineup for Borussia Moenchengladbach for the first time since late August, but Gladbach fell, 1-0, at home to Borussia Dortmund and dropped to 15th place, one spot and two points above the relegation zone. Steve Cherundolo went his usual full game at right back with Hannover 96 and celebrated a 5-2 win over Freiburg. Its first home win of the season moved Hannover up to 11th place. In the second division, Kenny Cooper played 63 minutes in 1860 Munich's 3-1 loss to St Pauli, Matt Taylor the last 45 minutes in FSV Frankfurt's 1-1 tie with Kaiserslautern, and keeper David Yeldell went 90 minutes for TUS Koblenz in a 1-0 loss to RW Oberhausen.

MEXICO. San Luis defender Michael Orozco was red-carded in the 69th minute of a 1-1 tie with Toluca. Jose Francisco Torres started and went 70 minutes for Pachuca in its 2-1 win over Club America, whose Edgar Castillio sat out with an injury.

SCOTLAND. Rangers' Maurice Edu (injured) and DaMarcus Beasley sat out the Old Firm game -- a 2-1 win over Celtic.

ITALY. Oguchi Onyewu's 30 minutes of action in Wednesday's Champions League 1-0 loss to FC Zurich remains his only action for AC Milan after not suiting up for a 1-1 tie with Atalanta in Serie A.
