Bocanegra snags goal for St. Etienne

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Carlos Bocanegra scored his first goal for St. Etienne in its 2-2 tie with Bordeaux in France's Ligue 1 on Sunday night. Michael Bradley scored on Saturday for Borussia Moenchengladbach in its 2-1 loss to Hannover 96 that left it in last place in Germany's Bundesliga.

Bocanegra scored on a header off Dimitri Payet's free kick in the 68the minute, but Bordeaux equalized with a minute left in the game.

Bradley scored early in the first half on a free kick into the penalty area that went over all the Gladbach and Hannover players and bounced into the goal inside the far post.

Clint Dempsey assisted on Diomansy Kamara's goal with a nifty through ball that split the Arsenal defense in Fulham's 2-1 loss to the Gunners, the Cottagers' sixth game in a row without a win.

Tim Howard's Everton held defending Premier League champion Chelsea to a 1-1 tie at Stamford Bridge. Howard was fortunate to escape a red card. He took down Nicolas Anelka for a penalty kick for the Blues' only goal converted by Didier Drogba.

Jonathan Spector started for West Ham United for the first time in an EPL game in more than three months. The Hammers' 1-0 loss at Sunderland left them tied for last place with Wigan Athletic.

Midfielder Stuart Holden, suffering from a thigh injury, again sat out for Bolton Wanderers.
