U.S. Abroad: Casey gets German debut Forward Conor Casey, unable to see first-team action with Borussia Dortmund since signing with the Bundesliga club last year, was loaned recently to second-division Hannover, where fellow American Steve Cherundolo is a starter. Casey came off the bench in Monday's 2-0 win against SVW Mannheim. Also in action Monday was goalkeeper Brad Friedel, whose Blackburn Rovers managed only a scoreless draw with last-place Leicester City. England Brad Friedel, Blackburn (PL) Started (90 min.) vs. Leicester City (0-0). Friedel earned just his second clean sheet of the Premier League season, but the result was far from favorable to Blackburn, considering Leicester's position at the bottom of the league. The visitors had lost five straight matches and won just one upon facing Rovers, yet they had the better chances to score. Ultimately, Rovers' shutout was attributed to woeful finishing by Leicester forward Ade Akinbiyi more than Friedel's goalkeeping. After 11 matches, Friedel's club sits squarely in the middle of the 20-team standings at three wins, five ties and three losses. Germany Steve Cherundolo, Hannover (D2) Started (90 min.) vs. SVW Mannheim (2-0). Conor Casey, Hannover (D2 - on loan from Borussia Dortmund) Entered as a substitute (76th minute) vs. SVW Mannheim (2-0). Three minutes after Casey made his debut in the German Second Division, his team scored the clinching goal against visiting Mannheim. Norway Robbie Russell, Sogndal (D1) Started (90 min.) vs. Bodo/Glimt (3-2). The victory moved Russell's club three points ahead of ninth-place Bodo/Glint in the 14-team first division.
