MOST COMMENTED

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Clint Dempsey scored his 14th and 15th EPL goals of the season -- and his first ever goal on a free kick (see video) -- as Fulham beat Bolton Wanderers, 3-0, on the road. Meanwhile, midfielder Michael Bradley scored his first Serie A goal to help Chievo Verona beat Catania, 3-2.  Joe Corona and DaMarcus Beasley scored in Mexico, and U-23 Tony Taylor scored his first goal since returning to Estoril in Portugal.

Dempsey's goals put him fifth in the EPL in scoring -- without the benefit of scoring from the penalty spot -- and give him 21 goals in all competitions.

Corona scored in Tijuana's 2-1 win over Atlante. Beasley scored the tying goal as Puebla rallied to beat Toluca 2-1. Elsewhere in Mexico, Jose Torres assisted on the lone goal in Pachuca's 1-0 win at UNAM.

    Surprised Ream wasn't in the wall on Dempsey's free kick. Those guys in the wall were lifeless. Not one jumped up to try to block the kick.
