[AMERICANS ABROAD] Brad Friedel made four saves to help Aston Villa to a 2-0 win Wednesday at Jozy Altidore's Hull City, dealing a devastating blow to the Tigers in their bid to remain in the English Premier League.

Hull remains in 18th place, three points behind West Ham with three games to play. The bottom three teams in the EPL are relegated.

With the win, Villa leapfrogged Liverpool and moved into sixth place.

Altidore came on for Dutchman Jan Vennegoor, who was taken off due to injury in the 55th minute.

    will friedel see any world cup playing time at all? I'm not discrediting Tim Howard at all, but i would love to see Brad up in the action.

    We if we were going on form...yeah he would, he's had an amazing season this year... but he very publicly "retired" from the Nats a while back, so he won't be called in. The three keepers look pretty clearly to be Howard, Marcus Hahnemann of Wolverhampton, and Friedel's backup at Aston Villa, Brad Guzan. The real question is which of these two will serve as Howards backup and which is the third string... my pick would be Hahnemann because unlike Guzan, he actually gets real playing time on a regular basis.
