Johnson makes case with third playoff goal

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Eddie Johnson continued his late charge for World Cup consideration, scoring his third goal in three Greek Super League playoff games for Aris in its 4-2 loss to AEK Athens on Sunday.

Johnson has five goals since joining Aris in January.

Fellow American Freddy Adu did not play against AEK.

The Greek playoffs among the second- to fifth-place teams determine which team joins league champion Panathinaikos in the 2010-11 UEFA Champions League.

Aris is already eliminated from contention with three games to play and will play in next season's Europa League.

U.S. national team scorers (Europe 2009-10):
9 Dempsey
(Fulham, England)
5 Johnson (Aris, Greece)
3 Bedoya (Orebro, Sweden)
3 Cooper (1860 Munich, Germany)
2 Adu (Aris, Greece)
2 Beasley (Rangers, Scotland)
2 Bradley (Borussia M'Gladbach, Germany)
2 Davies (Sochaux, France)
2 Donovan (Everton, England)
2 Edu (Rangers, Scotland)
