MOST COMMENTED

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Jermaine Jones' value to Schalke 04 was underscored on Thursday as he scored the deciding goal and set up the insurance goal in its 4-1 victory over FC Twente that moved it into the quarterfinals the Europa League. Jozy Altidore's AZ and Steve Cherundolo's Hannover 96 also advanced on a night the giants of English soccer, Manchester United and Manchester City, both were knocked out.

Twente won the first leg 1-0 and went ahead 1-0 early in the second leg, meaning Schalke needed to score three unanswered goals to win the series.

Dutchman Klaas-Jan Huntelaar scored twice, Jones made it 3-1 in the 71st minute, and Huntelaar, set up by Jones, made it 4-1 with his third goal in the 81st minute.

Altidore started and picked up a yellow card as AZ survived against Udinese despite playing 88 minutes with 10 men after Nick Viergever's 2nd-minute red card. Udinese led 2-0 to tie the series 2-2 when Erik Falkenburg turned the tide in AZ's favor with a goal in the 31st minute.

Cherundolo also went the distance for Hannover 96, a 4-0 winner over Standard Liege at home after tying 2-2 in Belgium.

Other quarterfinalists: Athletic Bilbao, Atletico Madrid and Valencia of Spain, Oguchi Onyewu's Sporting of Portugal and Metalist Kharkiv of Ukraine.
