[AMERICANS ABROAD] Jermaine Jones enjoyed a winning debut with surging Blackburn Rovers, Brad Friedel picked up a crucial shutout win for Aston Villa against EPL title-challenger Manchester City, and U.S. 2010 World Cup players Clint Dempsey (twice), Jonathan Spector and Edson Buddle all scored.

Jones and Paraguayan Roque Santa Cruz both impressed in their debuts for Blackburn, which moved into seventh place with the win.

Jones earned praised from Blackburn manager Steve Kean for his industrious performance.

"He's not even fully fit," said Kean, "but he's got everything."

    Clint is having a career-making year, he deserves it with his work ethic, the guy just plays full tilt. Following his World Cup performance with this Fulham season, and with his contributions being key to Fulham pulling further away from the relegation zone, I hope to see him get more attention in the European football press (U.S. press too, unfortunately NFL playoffs made his brace unlikely to garner mention this weekend).
