[AMERICANS ABROAD] Steve Cherundolo and Michael Bradley were both on the winning side in big German Bundesliga wins. Cherundolo's relegation-threatened Hannover defeated title challenger Schalke 04, 4-2, while Bradley had an assist in Borussia Moenchengladbach's 2-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt. Here's how U.S. national team players did in weekend action abroad ...
Hannover's winner left it one point in the relegation zone with four games to play. It is one point behind both Nuremberg and Bochum, who both lost at home on Sunday.
In another relegation race, Jozy Altidore had an assist on Kevin Kilbane's third-minute goal, but it all went wrong after that for Hull City, which lost at home to Burnley, 4-1.
Meanwhile, Jonathan Spector's West Ham beat Sunderland, 1-0.
The results moved West Ham into 16th place, four points out of the relegation zone, where Hull and Burnley are now tied for 18th place in front of Portsmouth, which was relegated on Saturday without playing.
