MOST COMMENTED

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Of the seven European-based field players eligible for Wednesday's Ukraine-USA game, all but Brek Shea started on Saturday. That includes Clint Dempsey, who made his first appearance for last-place English Premier League club Fulham in more than three weeks and started in its 3-1 loss at home to London rival Chelsea, which has opened up a four-lead at the top. Dempsey missed a golden opportunity with a header in the third minute in his last game before returning to the Seattle Sounders.
