[AMERICANS ABROAD] Clint Dempsey scored a hat trick -- the first of his career -- to lead Fulham to a 4-0 victory over Charlton Athletic in the third round of the English FA Cup. Other Americans to win in the entry round for England's big clubs were Landon Donovan, Tim Howard and Brad Guzan.

Dempsey's three goals (see below) gave him 12 on the season in all competitions for the Cottagers.

Guzan saved Scott McGleish's penalty in Aston Villa's 3-1 win at Bristol Rovers.

Donovan had an assist, sending in the corner on Johnny Heitinga's opening goal, and Howard went all the way in goal in Everton's 2-0 win over Tamworth.
