[AMERICANS ABROAD] Of the 16 U.S. World Cup hopefuls whose teams were in action abroad over the weekend, 11 started. On Sunday, Michael Orozco, back in the starting lineup at Puebla, assisted on the tying goal in its 1-1 tie with Monterrey. Fellow defender DaMarcus Beasley started at left back for La Franja. In England, Geoff Cameron started for Stoke City in its wild 5-3 loss to visiting Liverpool. For all the weekend action.

Leading Scorers (2013-14):
18 Aron Johannsson (AZ)
12 Terrence Boyd (Rapid Vienna)
8 Sacha Kljestan

(Goals in all club competitions.)

Saturday ...

ENGLAND.
The Fulham team that Clint Dempsey returned to is a shadow of the team he left in 2012. In his first EPL start of his loan spell at Craven Cottage, Fulham fell to Sunderland, 4-1, for a result that allowed the Black Cats to escape the basement. World Cup hopefuls Edgar Castillo, Joe Corona and Herculez Gomez all started and teenager Paul Arriola came off the bench for Tijuana in its 1-0 win over Mexican giant Club America.

Sunderland moved ahead of Crystal Palace on goal difference and is only two points behind Fulham in 15th place. Only six points separate the bottom 11 teams in what shapes up to be a very nervous second half of the season for a lot of teams.

Dempsey had a very quiet game before going off, while Altidore was involved in the third (video) and fourth (video) Sunderland goals that completed Adam Johnson's hat trick.

TRANSFER. Oguchi Onyewu, whose short-term contract was up at Queens Park Rangers, has moved to Sheffield Wednesday for the rest of the season. He moves from the third-place team in the League Championship to the 19th-place team in the 24-team second division.




Friday ...

MEXICO. World Cup hopefuls Edgar Castillo, Joe Corona and Herculez Gomez all started and teenager Paul Arriola came off the bench for Tijuana in its 1-0 win over Club America (replay), match that marked the return of Argentine Antonio Mohamed, recently installed as America boss, for the first time since he left Xolos, whom he coached to the 2012 Torneo Apertura title.

Castillo had an excellent second half, helping set up the winning goal with a run into the area and pass that the America defense could not clear. Earlier, America keeper Moises Munoz denied the left back on a one-on-one chance. Corona was denied a golazo when he hit the near post after breaking through on Munoz.
