[AMERICANS ABROAD] Mix Diskerud set up the winning goal in Rosenborg's 5-2 win over Brann that moved it into fourth place in Norway's Tippeligaen, tied with Bob Bradley's Stabaek. Jozy Altidore watched from the bench as Sunderland beat Cardiff City, 4-0, to move out of the English Premier League's relegation zone.

Leading Scorers (2013-14):
26 Aron Johannsson (AZ)
18+2 Terrence Boyd (Rapid Vienna)
9 Sacha Kljestan
(Anderlecht)
6 Alejandro Bedoya (Nantes)
(Goals in all club competitions.)

MEXICO. Edgar Castillo and Joe Corona started for Tijuana in its 2-1 loss at home to Leon, but Xolos still qualified for Mexico's Torneo Clausura playoffs when Morelia, Atlas and Guadalajara, which all had a chance to overtake them, lost. Tijuana will face Toluca in the Liguilla.

Saturday ...

For the second game in a row, Terrence Boyd scored goals for Rapid Vienna, putting away the late winner in a 2-1 defeat of champion Red Bull Salzburg in Austria's Bundesliga.

Boyd's goals were the 17th and 18th of the season in all competitions. Red Bull Salzburg is the runaway winner of the Austrian title, but second-place Rapid's win opened up a three-point lead over third-place Austria Vienna with two games to play.

John Brooks
continues to make a late case for inclusion on the U.S. national team's 30-player short list, scoring the winning goal in Hertha Bertha's 2-0 win over Eintracht Braunschweig.

Brooks scored in the 61st minute following a corner kick for his first goal since his Bundesliga debut on the opening day of the season. He has started in five of Hertha's last seven games.

Elsewhere in Germany, Tim Chandler returned to action for the first time in more than two months with Nuremberg, while Joe Gyau made his Bundesliga debut for Hoffenheim.

Sidelined with a knee injury since early February, Chandler came on in the second half Nuremberg's 2-0 loss at Mainz. Gyau, 21, is in his fourth season with Hoffenheim, which signed him out of the U.S. under-17 residency program in 2009.

-- In the 2. Bundesliga, Andrew Wooten had two goals for FSV Frankfurt in its 3-1 win over Energie Cottbus.

ENGLAND. Goalkeepers Tim Howard and Brad Guzan suffered long afternoons in the Premier League. Howard's Everton lost to Southampton, 2-0, on a pair of own goals. Guzan's Aston Villa dropped a 4-1 decision to Swansea City in a match that saw Jonjo Shelvey score from more than 40 yards against Guzan.
