[AMERICANS ABROAD] The weekend before U.S. national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann announces his roster for Wednesday's Bosnia-USA friendly in Sarajevo marks the kickoff to the German Bundesliga and features several big games involving players whom Klinsmann might call up.

John Brooks, the 20-year-old Hertha Berlin defender who is expected to get his first U.S. callup, will hope to make his Bundesliga debut against Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday.

Timmy Chandler (Nuremberg) and Fabian Johnson (Hoffenheim) will face off on Saturday, while Jermaine Jones (Schalke 04) plays against Hamburg on Sunday.

Icelandic-American Aron Johannsson, whose callup is dependent upon getting the green light from FIFA, has a big game scheduled for Sunday as AZ hosts Dutch champion Ajax. Terrence Boyd's Rapid Vienna hosts Austria Vienna in a derby match.

In Mexico, Tijuana with its heavy American contingent is again in action on Friday night as it faces UNAM. Teenager Paul Arriola earned his first start in midweek Concacaf Champions League action after twice assisting on goals off the bench in league play.

MIDWEEK WRAP. Terrence Boyd played the whole game in Rapid Vienna's 3-1 win over Greece's Asteras Tripolis to advance in Europa League qualifying. Conor O'Brien came off the bench for FC Nordsjaelland in its 5-0 loss at Zenit St. Petersburg that knocked the Danish club out of UEFA Champions League qualifying.

    Forgot to mention the best young American player playing in bundesliga 2, Joseph Gyau. Plays for saint poli!

    Wasn't Gyau on loan from Hoffenheim? He didn't see a lot of time with St. Pauli. Not sure what his situation is now.
