2. AMERICANS ABROAD: Reyna joins 100 club

Claudio Reyna's appearance in Manchester City's 3-1 win over Fulham marked the former U.S. captain's 100th English Premier League game. He joins goalkeepers Brad Friedel and Kasey Keller, and forward Brian McBride in the group of Americans who have hit the century mark in England's top tier.

Reyna started his pro career in Germany in 1994 and played 74 games for First Division Bayer Leverkusen and VfL Wolfsburg. He joined Glasgow Rangers in 1999 and made 64 Scottish Premier League appearances before moving the English Premier League's Sunderland, where he played two seasons before joining his current club Manchester City, in 2003.

In the win over Fulham, for which McBride and Carlos Bocanegra played the first half, Reyna gave one of his better performances on the season.
