Diskerud starts first game, Kljestan remains on bench
[AMERICANS ABROAD] Mix Diskerud earned his first start of the Tippeligaen season, going the distance as Rosenborg played to
a 2-2 tie at Bodo/Glimt, the northern outpost of Norwegian soccer.

Michael Stephens started for Coach Bob Bradley's Stabaek, which dropped its second straight game -- 2-1 loss at Odds --
after opening with two wins. The loss dropped Stabaek to eighth place, one spot below Rosenborg.
In Belgium, Sacha Kljestan remained on the bench
again as Anderlecht fell 1-0 at short-handed Genk. The loss kept the two-time defending champions four points behind leader Standard Liege in fourth place through five games of the 10-game Belgian
In England's League Championship, Oguchi Onyewu started for Sheffield Wednesday, which dropped a 3-2 decision to
visiting Charlton after leading 2-0, while Will Packwood started in place of Jonathan Spector at right back in
relegation-threatened Birmingham City's 4-2 loss to Blackburn.
