[AMERICANS ABROAD] Three Americans played Thursday in the second leg of the Europa League quarterfinals, and their clubs all exited. Only Jermaine Jones' Schalke 04 managed to earn at least a tie, but the 2-2 result was not enough to make up for its 4-2 loss at Athletic Bilbao.

Spanish clubs were the opposition for the other two Americans to start on Thursday.

Atletico Madrid beat Steve Cherundolo's Hannover 2-1 for the second time, while Valencia quickly made up for its 2-1 loss to Jozy Altidore's AZ in Alkmaar with two goals by French defender Adil Rami in the first 17 minutes, and it went on to win the second leg, 4-0.

Oguchi Onyewu's Sporting Lisbon completed the final four with a 1-1 draw at Metalist Kharkiv that sent it through, 3-2, on aggregate.

Onyewu remains sidelined while recovering from his latest knee injury.
