[AMERICANS ABROAD] Jermaine Jones scored his first goal of the 2013-14 Bundesliga season for Schalke 04 and just the ninth goal in nine seasons in the German first division with a golazo to finish off Schalke 04's 3-0 win over VfB Stuttgart.

Leading Scorers:
15 Aron Johannsson (AZ)
11+1 Terrence Boyd (Rapid Vienna)
10 *Chukwudi Chijindu (Thor)
7 Sacha Kljestan
7 *Jordan Seabrook (VPS)
*completed 2013 spring-fall season.
(All competitions.)

Only recently, there was talk of Jones leaving the club after being suspended in late September for poor play, but he played every minute of every Schalke game in November.

His goal came when he took a pass outside the area, lifted the ball with one touch and volleyed it inside the near post.

Elsewhere, Steve Cherundolo made his first appearance for Hannover 96 since May, coming on as a late sub in its 2-0 win over Hamburg, while Brek Shea's appearance for Stoke City in its 4-0 loss at Everton was his first in the English Premier League since March.

Jose Torres, the only American in Mexico's Apertura playoffs, was eliminated as Tigres' 1-1 tie at Club America was not enough to overcome the 2-2 tie in Monterrey that sent America through on away goals. Torres came on in the 72nd minute.

(Benji Joya won the Mexican sub-20 title, going the distance in Santos' 1-0 win at Leon to take the final series, 3-2, on aggregate.)

    Forget Cherundelo. Play Timmy Chandler at Right Back for USMNT. He plays 90 minutes per game in Bundesliga, and is much younger, faster, and better player! We need a good Right Back. And he is perfect.

    You assume that's a choice. Dude doesn't even appear to really want to play for the US.
