[AMERICANS ABROAD] Christen Press and Yael Averbuch scored to give fourth-place FC Gothenburg a 2-0 win Sunday at last-place Djurgarden in Sweden's Damallsvenskan. Americans were also winners in France and Germany, where the women's seasons are just beginning.

Press now has 14 goals in 14 games to rank second behind German Anja Mittag of leader LdB Malmo with 18 goals.

Averbuch was one of several U.S. internationals to move to Europe during the summer.

Like Averbuch a product of North Carolina and like Press an alternate on the 2012 U.S. Olympic team, Meghan Klingenberg joined Tyreso, which is second in the Damallsvenskan, five points behind Malmo but with a game in hand.

-- Western Kentucky's Libby Stout made her debut in goal for Yzeure in a 3-1 win over Toulouse on the opening day of France's First Division.

-- In abbreviated Frauen-Bundesliga action, Katarina Tarr started for Essen-Schoenebeck in its 3-1 over perennial power FFC Frankfurt.
