MOST COMMENTED

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Red-hot Benny Feilhaber, who has scored five goals in his last three games for Danish club Aarhus GF and is one of three Americans whose clubs finished the month in first place, heads Soccer America's Top 5 Americans abroad rankings for the month of September.

1. BENNY FEILHABER. The midfielder capped a career week with a goal on a free kick in the 90th minute -- his fifth goal in three games -- to give AGF a 3-2 win over Koge Sunday that kept it in first place in the Viasat Sport Divisionen, the second level of Danish soccer. Feilhaber also assisted on AGF's first two goals. Earlier in the week, he had a hat trick in AGF's 6-3 win over Skive in the Danish Cup. In his previous game, he scored the tying goal in a 1-1 tie at Hobro from the penalty spot. Relegated at the end of last last season, AGF has opened up a four-point lead in the Viasat Sport Divisionen.

2. CARLOS BOCANEGRA. The transfer fee of $200,000 St. Etienne paid Rennes for the 31-year-old left back has been called one of the bargains of the season in France. The Greens won all three games by shutout in September -- including a 1-0 victory at neighbor Lyon -- to climb into first place for the first time since 1981.

3. MAURICE EDU. The former University of Maryland and Toronto FC midfielder had two solid games for Rangers in the Champions League that earned the Scottish champions four points: a 0-0 tie at Manchester United and a 1-0 win over Bursaspor. Rangers also won all three SPL games in which Edu played.

4. STEVE CHERUNDOLO. Cherundolo, the Hannover 96 captain, started every game in September for one of the surprises of the Bundesliga season. Considered a relegation candidate, Hannover is third heading into Friday's game at home against St. Pauli.

5. BRAD FRIEDEL. The 39-year-old keeper had one of his best games of the season for Aston Villa in Saturday's 2-1 win over Wolves. Friedel won the battle of American keepers over Marcus Hahnemann, making a double stop in the first half to keep Wolves off the board in new manager Gerard Houllier's first EPL game with Villa. Friedel was also excellent in a 1-1 tie against Bolton a week earlier.

Honorable mention: Clint Dempsey (scored first EPL goal of the season for unbeaten in 1-1 tie at Blackburn), Stuart Holden (rewarded by Bolton Wanderers for strong play with two-year contract extension), Alejandro Bedoya (had second goal of the season for third-place Orebro in 1-0 win over Kalmar but got sent off in same game).

    How come Giuseppe Rossi is not being mentioned in the Americans Abroad?
