[AMERICANS ABROAD] Caleb Stanko, who played for the USA at the 2013 Under-20 World Cup, earned his first call-up to Freiburg's first team for its 3-1 won over Werder Bremen on Friday. For more on Stanko and Friday night's Tijuana-Puebla clash of Americans in Mexico. The 20-year-old Stanko joined Freiburg from Michigan academy program Vardar in 2011 and has recently been playing for Freiburg II, its under-23 team.

Edgar Castillo was the only American to start for Tijuana in its 3-1 win over Puebla, which started DaMarcus Beasley and Michael Orozco. The win moved Xolos temporarily into a three-way tie for fourth place in the Torneo Clausura. The top eight teams make the playoffs. The loss left Puebla, plagued by financial problems, one point out of the basement.

25 Aron Johannsson (AZ)

(Anderlecht)

    Several of these players are clearly still injured, say Holden, Chandler, Lichaj... so listing them is a bit misleading
