Jones' goal earns Schalke 04 draw, yellow card earns him suspension

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Jermaine Jones joined DaMarcus Beasley as the only Americans to score in the knockout phase of the UEFA Champions League when he scored the all-important away goal on the stroke of halftime in German club Schalke 04's 1-1 tie at Galatarasay in the first leg of their round-of-16 series on Wednesday. Unfortunately, Jones picked up a yellow card, his second of the competition, and is suspended for the second leg.

"We are really happy with the result," said Jones. "We made one or two mistakes and conceded the goal, but all together we played well. Our goal was important. We'll see how things go from here. We have earned a lot of respect."

Jones, whose finished off Jefferson Farfan's pass with a one-time shot, won't be available for the second leg in Gelsenkirchen March 12 after calling for a yellow card for Galatasaray's Selcuk Inan and earning a yellow card of his own for dissent in the 35th minute.

"The action which led to my yellow card was dumb from me," he said. "I hope I can still play in the quarterfinal."

Beasley scored for PSV in a 2-0 round-of-16 win at Monaco in 2005. PSV advanced to the semifinals, the farthest stage in which an American has played in the competition.

Jovan Kirovski was on the Borussia Dortmund team that won the 1997 title but did not play in the final stages.

    This guy drives me nuts. He looks really good for Schalke, but when it comes to the USMNT, it is clearly not the same. Nice goal. Terrible yellow.

    "earning a yellow card of his own for dissent in the 35th minute." Yea Jones! A 'loose cannon' on the field, if ever there was one.
