[AMERICANS ABROAD] Sacha Kljestan started for Anderlecht in its 1-1 tie with Club Brugge that clinched a record 31st Belgian league title.

Jozy Altidore
did not miss time off despite his horrific tumble in midweek, setting up the lone goal in AZ's 1-0 win over FC Groningen that clinched fourth place in the Dutch Eredivisie.

The news was not as good from Portugal, where Sporting's match at Porto turned on Oguchi Onyewu's red card midway through the second half.

Porto went on to score two goals and win, 2-0, clinching the Portuguese league title and ending Sporting's hopes of claiming a Champions League playoff berth.

Elsewhere in Portugal, Arturo Alvarez scored in Pacos de Ferreira's 2-2 tie with Rio Ave.

    what about Gregg Berhalter and his coaching at Hammarby? I know they are in the 2nd division, but they are currently in 1st place!
