[AMERICANS ABROAD]It was a miserable weekend for Americans in Europe, where only nine of the 22 World Cup hopefuls played. Of the nine, six lost and three tied.

The injury list grew as Timmy Chandler had to be taken to the hospital with a knee injury (meniscus tear) suffered in Nuremberg's Frankisch-Bayerisches derby with German champion Bayern Munich.

Players who did not dress included forwards Clint Dempsey, Aron Johannsson and Terrence Boyd and midfielder Alejandro Bedoya.

MEXICO. DaMarcus Beasley left Puebla's game against Guadalajara on his own power, limping off in the second half after being stomped on in the 1-0 loss to Chivas.

Saturday ...

Timmy Chandler's season could be finished after he had to taken to the hospital for a CAT early in Nuremberg's Fränkisch-Bayerisches derby with German champion Bayern Munich.

Nuremberg said Chandler was expected to be out 8-10 weeks. The injury, which came in the 8th minute of his 100th Bundesliga, was a huge blow as he had been playing very well to draw the attention of U.S. national team Jurgen Klinsmann, in whose doghouse he's been for much of the last year.

It was a rough day for Nuremberg, which lost young striker David Ginczek for six weeks with a knee injury (cruciate ligament). Both players were scheduled to have surgery Monday in Augsburg.

-- Also unable to play was Oguchi Onyewu, who had been making a late bid since his move to Sheffield Wednesday. Once again, Sacha Kljestan did not get off the bench at Anderlecht, where he has made one league appearance in the last two months.

German-American Andrew Wooten scored on his first touch with his new club to give FSV Frankfurt a 2-1 win at Bochum as the German Bundesliga 2 resumed Friday night after the winter break. The goal was Wooten's 10th in the second division in 40 games.
