USA's M*A*S*H unit empties out

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Well, the U.S. national team's M*A*S*H unit emptied out. Tim Howard, Timmy Chandler, Fabian Johnson, Danny Williams, Jose Torres and Edgar Castillo, who all missed the March qualifiers because of injuries or illness, returned to action over the weekend. Steve Cherundolo, who has not played since December, dressed for Hannover 96, and even Carlos Bocanegra saw his first action in almost two months.

Howard was solid in goal, making a key save on a Robert Huth header, as Everton beat Stoke City, 1-0, to move to within four points of fourth place with eight games to play.

The only other winner was Torres, who started in Tigres' 2-1 win at Puebla that kept it unbeaten.

The only foreign-based member of the USA's walking wounded who did not dress was Jonathan Spector, though his injured ankle was improving.

Two starters from the USA's 0-0 tie with Mexico did not play over the weekend: Clint Dempsey and Michael Bradley. Clarence Goodson and Jermaine Jones, who both started in the 1-0 win over Costa Rica but missed the Mexico game because of injuries, did not play.
