MOST COMMENTED

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Amid reports that Aston Villa might bring in competition for him and fellow American Brad Guzan in goal, 39-year-old Brad Friedel picked up the victory as Aston Villa won, 2-1, at Wigan on Tuesday.

Friedel could do nothing to stop Gary Caldwell's header, but he did well to stop Honduran Maynor Figueroa's long-distance shot.

The victory left Villa in seventh place just three points behind fourth-place Tottenham with a game in hand over its rivals.

The Daily Mail reported earlier this week that Aston Villa could make a move for backup Manchester United goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak.
