Bocanegra endures rough night

MOST COMMENTED

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Carlos Bocanegra's string of solid outings came to an end Sunday night when he was taken off at halftime of Rennes' 2-1 loss to visiting Lille. His "2" rating (out of a possible 10 in the France Football ratings) was the worst of anyone on the field.

Lille has one of the most dangerous attacks in France's Ligue 1 with Ivorian Gervinho, Belgian teenager Eden Hazard and veteran French striker Pierre-Alain Frau, and Bocanegra struggled.

A Bocanegra tackle on Gervinho forced the Ivorian to come out of the game in the 36th minute and Bocanegra followed him to the showers at the half. Romain Danze took over for Bocanegra at left back after the break.

Bocanegra had lost his starting job late last and was rumored to be headed to Saint Etienne during the January transfer market, but the move never took place and he regained his starting spot.
