[AMERICANS ABROAD] Clint Dempsey
scored his first goal in seven weeks to give Fulham a 1-1 tie with Wigan Saturday
in the English Premier League club's first game since Manager Lawrie Sanchez
Dempsey's goal, his fifth of the EPL campaign, came in the
78th minute when a ball rebounded to Dempsey, who scored from 12 yards.
Fulham, which had fired Sanchez on Friday, remained in 19th place, one point ahead of Wigan. Both are in the
relegation zone. Carlos Bocanegra
also started for the Cottagers and cleared a shot by Dutchman Denny
off the line in the sixth minute.
