[AMERICANS ABROAD] The M*A*S*H unit worrying U.S. national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann began to empty out as Aron Johannsson scored his 22nd goal of the season for AZ in the first half of its 1-1 tie with Juan Agudelo's FC Utrecht. Fabian Johnson returned to action for Hoffenheim for the first time since breaking his hand, and Alejandro Bedoya (Nantes) was back in action in France.

Leading Scorers (2013-14):
22+1 Aron Johannsson (AZ)
12 Terrence Boyd (Rapid Vienna)
8 Sacha Kljestan
(Anderlecht)
(Goals in all club competitions.)

Johannsson (groin) had been out 10 days. Bedoya (hamstring) was playing for the first time in two weeks for Nantes, which settled for a 0-0 tie with Nice. Johnson started at right back in Hoffenheim's 4-1 win over VfB Stuttgart that moved it into 10th place in the Bundesliga.

Jozy Altidore did not dress in Sunderland's 1-0 win over Southampton that moved it into the quarterfinals of the English FA Cup. He had played six games for Sunderland in 21 days before the Black Cats' match at Manchester City was washed out on Wednesday. In addition to a relegation fight, Sunderland has a March 2 date in the Capital One Cup final coming up.
