[AMERICANS ABROAD] Landon Donovan and Tim Howard were on the losing end of a 2-1 decision in Everton's match at Tottenham on Sunday. They were among nine players called up for Wednesday's U.S. national team game against the Netherlands to play over the weekend.

Everton came back from two goals down and had a chance to tie Spurs, but Donovan missed a sitter with 13 minutes to play when he failed to put away Jack Rodwell’s cross from close range.

“This is just a really disappointing moment for me personally,” Donovan said afterwards. “I’ve put a lot into my time here and another goal would have been a nice reward. I got myself in a good position at the back post and was hoping Jack was going to put the ball across goal. He did that and it came perfectly for me.

“It’s hard to understand what went wrong. I felt like everything was right but then I looked up to see the ball had hit the side netting. It’s so frustrating because if we had scored then it’s possible we might have gone on to win the game."

Brad Guzan, DNP (Aston Villa, 1-2, vs. Man. United, League Cup final)

    Marcus Hahnemann did play 90 minutes, and they did lose 0-1. But they didnt lose to Burnley, they lost to Bolton.

    How Beasley remains on Bradley's radar is not only questionable, but not within the spirit of Bradley's dictum that club playing time is essential for selection. Bradley is applying a double standard here.
