[AMERICANS ABROAD] Defender Carlos Bocanegra followed up his goal for USA against the Netherlands with the winning goal for Rennes in its 1-0 victory over Monaco in France's Ligue 1.

Bocanegra, who scored when he pushed on a Sylvain Marveaux free kick in the 29th minute, almost added a second goal in the 86th minute. The win snapped a three-game losing streak for Rennes, which is in ninth place.

Bocanegra has scored at least one goal in 10 off his 11 league seasons with the Chicago Fire, Fulham and Rennes.

Bocanegra’s goal against the Dutch in Amsterdam was the 12th of his international career.

    I guess he did get a slight touch to it, but from this angle it is tough to see!
