[AMERICANS ABROAD] Clint Dempsey's first goal of the season earned Fulham a 2-2 tie with Manchester City while Michael Bradley came close to scoring in Borussia Moenchengladbach's derby game.

Dempsey headed home from 10 yards in the 68th minute for Fulham's second goal as it overcame a two-goal deficit to tie Manchester City, 2-2. It was Dempsey's 15th EPL goal since joining Fulham in January of 2007.

Also in the English Premier League, defender Jonathan Spector got his first start since late August and helped West Ham tie Arsenal, 2-2, after going down 2-0. Aston Villa, with Brad Friedel in goal, tied Wolverhampton, 1-1, while keeper Tim Howard and Everton went down, 3-2, to Bolton.

In Germany, right back Steve Cherundolo went the full 90 and played well in Hannover 96's 1-0 win over VfB Stuttgart. The win moved Hannover into 11th place. Borussia Moenchengladbach, with midfielder Michael Bradley playing the whole game, settled for a 0-0 tie in the derby it hosted against FC Cologne in front of 54,067 fans. Bradley, who scored his first goal of the season last weekend, shot just wide with a stoppage-time effort from long-range. Gladbach remains above of the relegation zone thanks only to goal difference.

In the German second division, Kenny Cooper played the final 24 minutes for 1860 Munich in a 3-2 loss to FSV Frankfurt. His team dropped to 14th place in the 18-team league.

In France, defender Carlos Bocanegra played 90 minutes in Rennes' 3-0 win over Montpellier.

In Mexico, three Americans started: midfielder Jose Francisco Torres (76 minutes) in Pachuca's 1-0 win Indios, whose Marco Vidal went the full 90; and Edgar Castillo, who went 90 for Tigres in a 1-0 win over San Luis, whose Michael Orozco stayed on the bench.
