--Edgar Castillo and Joe Corona started for Tijuana as its troubles continued in the Liga MX with a 5-0 loss at Cruz Azul. The defeat extended the Xolos' winless streak in the Torneo Clausura to 10 games after they opened with four straight wins following their Torneo Apertura title.

-- Tim Howard'
s Everton shut out Queens Park Rangers, 2-0, to remain fifth in the English Premier League and in striking distance of the top four.

    Why can't Jozy score for the USA? Is he used differently at AZ? Is anyone looking into it?

    As near as I can tell, AZ plays a classic Dutch 4-3-3 with Jozy as the lone striker and 2 tradition wingers as a general rule. I don't have the data for the last 2 matches, but thru April 7 in the league, Altidore had 18 goals with only 2 scored from headers. It appears that Alkmaar plays into his feet as he runs the channels more so than as the Brian McBride clone that both Bradley and JK have tried to make him. Of course, the US doesn't exactly have any tradition wingers really. The guys we play wide in a 4-2-3-1 tend to be more midfielders/inside forwards and we tend to lack the width that apparently Jozy thrives on. Just one man's take on it, of course.
