MOST COMMENTED

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Aron Johannsson scored his sixth goal of the season in all competitions from the penalty spot to give Dutch club AZ a 3-0 win over Go Ahead Eagles. Sacha Kljestan and Terrence Boyd, neither of whom was called up for the recent World Cup 2014 qualifiers, also continued their hot starts to the 2013-14 season, while defender Babajide Ogunbiyi scored for the second time in the last three games in Denmark.

Kljestan scored for the fourth time in five games for Belgian club Anderlecht in its 5-0 win over Mechelen, while Boyd also had his fourth league goal in five games for Rapid Vienna in its 4-0 win over FC Wacker Innsbruck. Ogunbiyi's goal gave Viborg a 1-0 win at AGF.

Timmy Chandler, another player not called up for the USA's games against Costa Rica and Mexico, had an assist in Nuremberg's 1-1 tie at Eintracht Braunschweig

Jozy Altidore thought he had his first goal for Sunderland, but it was called back for a foul by Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna outside the area that denied the Black Cats a late equalizer in a game they eventually lost at home, 3-1. The result left Sunderland in last place in the English Premier League after four games.

Tim Howard picked up his third straight shutout for Everton, which beat Chelsea, 1-0, to pick up its first win after three ties.

Elsewhere in the EPL, Geoff Cameron started for Stoke City in its 0-0 tie with last year's runner-up, Manchester City, and Brad Guzan's Aston Villa fell at home to Newcastle, 2-1.

    Doesn't anyone else find it a bit strange that a goal would be disallowed because of a foul by the by the "defending" team ???

    Yes, the ref should have played advantage, especially considering that Altidore never lost possession of the ball
