[AMERICANS ABROAD] Clint Dempsey scored on a lob from 30 yards and set up Emmanuel Adebayor's winning goal to help Tottenham beat Stoke City, 2-1, on the road and keep its hopes alive of finishing in the top four in the English Premier League.

Tottenham is in fourth place, two points ahead of Arsenal, which plays FA Cup champion and relegation candidate Wigan Tuesday in a makeup game. Tottenham hosts Sunderland, and Arsenal travels to Newcastle United in Sunday's finale.

-- Clarence Goodson scored in Brondby's 1-1 win at AaB that moved it two points clear of the relegation zone with two games to play. (Horsens, which trails in 11th place in the Superliga, has a game in hand.) Alfredo Morales celebrated his 23rd birthday with his first goal for 2. Bundesliga champion Hertha Berlin in its 2-1 win at FC Cologne before 49,500 fans.

-- Fabian Johnson came off the bench to assist on Hoffenheim's lone goal in a 4-1 home loss to Hamburg that left it still in the German Bundesliga relegation zone with one game to play. Danny Williams, who has not played for Hoffenheim since missing the USA's March World Cup qualifiers with illness, did not dress.

-- Jose Torres' Tigres, the top seed in the Liga MX Clausura playoffs, was knocked out in the quarterfinals when its 1-1 tie with Monterrey gave the city rival a 2-1 aggregate victory in the quarterfinals. Fellow Texan Alonso Hernandez came on as a late sub for Monterrey. Herculez Gomez played the full 90 in Santos' 3-1 win at Atlas. The first leg of the quarterfinal series ended 0-0, so Santos reached the semifinals, where it meets Cruz Azul.

-- Sacha Kljestan's Anderlecht reclaimed the lead in Belgium's Jupiler League playoffs thanks to a 2-1 win at Genk. Anderlecht holds a two-point lead over Zulte-Waregem and Club Brugge with two games to play.

-- Steve Cherundolo set the Hannover 96 record for most league appearances with his 299th game for the club in a 3-1 loss to Bayer Leverkusen.

    Are you high, Robert? Check the video: he was at worst even with three defenders, pluss the right back was three yards deeper than his fellows. Great timing on the the pass, on the run, and on the cross. Great assist by the Deuce!
