[AMERICANS ABROAD]Quevilly, the amateur team whose goalie Kodjovi Obilale was shot and seriously injured when the Togo national team's bus was ambushed last month in Angola, knocked off Carlos Bocanegra's Rennes, 1-0, in the round of 16 of the French Cup on Tuesday.

Rennes, the 2009 French Cup runner-up, was coming off a 4-2 win over First Division leader Bordeaux on Saturday in which Bocanegra had one of his strongest games of the season at left back.

The U.S. captain was one of five Rennes starters from the Bordeaux game to start against Quevilly.

Quevilly, which plays in the fourth-level CFA, was supported by 10,000 fans who traveled to game in nearby Rouen, and it took the lead on a goal by Gregory Beaugrard just before halftime.

In the 76th minute, Bocanegra missed a chance to equalize when his left-footed lob just went over the crossbar.
