[AMERICANS ABROAD] Brad Friedel's bid for his first European trophy at the age of 41 remained alive as Tottenham blew the three-goal lead it took to Italy to face Inter Milan but advanced to the Europa League quarterfinals thanks to UEFA's use of away goals in overtime as a tiebreaker. Inter Milan led 3-0 after regulation to even the series at 3-3, and the second leg ended 4-1 after overtime to make the aggregate score 4-4 and give Spurs the win on the tiebreaker.

Friedel made 12 saves in the game, including a flying stop of a curling shot by Antonio Cassano in in the first overtime session.

Clint Dempsey missed his fifth straight game for Spurs with a calf injury, but U.S national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann told the Denver Post on Wednesday Dempsey should play Sunday against Fulham and join the U.S. national team on Monday for its camp ahead of the qualifiers against Costa Rica and Mexico.

-- Joe Corona started and Greg Garza came on as a sub for Mexican Torneo Apertura champion Tijuana in its 3-0 loss at Brazil's Corinthians on Wednesday night, its first defeat after three wins in its Libertadores Cup group.

-- DaMarcus Beasley scored for Puebla in the 54th minute as it beat Pachuca in a shootout after their Copa MX quarterfinal game ended in a 1-1 tie.
