[AMERICANS ABROAD] Aron Johannsson scored his 26th goal of the season in Dutch club AZ's 2-2 tie at Roda JC, while Alejandro Bedoya had his fifth goal for Nantes, a consolation goal with a well-taken header in the Canaris' 3-1 loss at Monaco. Tim Howard's Everton moved to within a point of fourth-place Arsenal -- with a game in hand -- thanks to its 3-0 victory over the Gunners on Sunday.
England on Saturday:
Danny Williams' goal in the 73rd minute gave Reading a 1-0 win at Charlton Athletic that moved it five points clear of Nottingham Forest, a 2-1 loser at home to Millwall, in sixth place in the English League Champions. The third- to sixth-place teams will play off for the third promotion spot to the Premier League.
Mexico on Friday:
Edgar Castillo and Joe Corona started for Tijuana in a 3-1 win over second-place Toluca that temporarily moved it into a three-way tie for fifth place in the Torneo Clausura. Corona drew a penalty that led to the third Xolos' goal.
