[AMERICANS ABROAD] Christen Press scored two goals to lead FC Gothenburg to a 3-2 win over Fortuna Hjorring of Denmark and move into the UEFA Women's Champions League quarterfinals with a 4-3 aggregate win.

Press was one of three Americans along with her former Stanford teammates, Cam Levin, and U.S. international Yael Averbuch to start for the Swedish club in its final match of the fall.

"[My first year here has been] phenomenal," Press told uefa.com. "I feel really glad to be with this group. It's a really special team and I've learned so much in my nine months here so I'm very lucky. We've worked really hard all season and we have a really good foundation. We have a long way to go if we are going to run for the Champions League, but we are an ambitious group and are planning to put in the work to do that."

Also advancing to the quarterfinals was former UCLA keeper Arianna Criscione, who started for Italian club Torres Calcio in its 3-0 win over Romania's Olimpia Universitatae Tehnica.

The rest of the quarterfinal field consists of defending champion Lyon and Juvisy (France), Wolfsburg (Germany), Arsenal Ladies (England), LdB Malmo (Sweden) and Rossiyanka (Russia).

FRANCE. Teen star Lindsey Horan scored her sixth goal in seven games to lead Paris St. Germain to a 3-0 win at Yzeure Allier. Libby Stout was in goal for Yzeure Allier. Next up for second-place PSG is a match with first-place Lyon, which has won its first eight games by a margin of 52-2.

GERMANY. Alyssa Naeher, Alex Singer and Keelin Winter's started for Turbine Potsdam in its 4-2 win at Bayer Leverkusen. The victory was its fifth in a row and kept it two points ahead of second-place Wolfsburg in the Frauen Bundesliga.

NETHERLANDS. CoCo Goodson's FC Twente remained unbeaten with a 3-1 win over PEC in the Dutch Bene Orange League. The former UC Irvine All-American was involved in pushing play forward from her position at central defender as Twente extended its lead over ADO to four points after nine games.

    And don't forget American Wide Back Ali Riley (formerly Gold Pride and wNY Flash) who starts for Malmo. Ali has re-signed with Malmo so will also be in the quarter-finals.
