Kljestan and Boyd get first goals

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Sacha Kljestan, whose short-term move to MLS over the summer was thwarted, finally got his first start of the 2014-15 Pro League season for Belgian champion Anderlecht, and he scored the decisive goal in its 3-2 win over Kortrijk, his first goal in eight months.

Kljestan was lost his starting job just as Anderlecht rallied to win the 2014 Belgian title in the playoffs scored in the 85th minute to give it a two-goal lead.

Terrence Boyd also scored his first goal since moving to German second division club RB Leipzig, scoring a goal in overtime in its 3-1 win over Erzgebirge Aue in the DFB Pokal. He only recently resumed play after an ACL injury sidelined him for the start of the campaign.

The only American to start in German Cup play was John Brooks for Hertha Berlin, which lost a shootout to Arminia Bielefeld.

Aron Johannsson made his first appearance of the season for AZ in its 5-0 win over GVVV Veenendaal in the Dutch Cup.

    HONESTLY there are probably some English majors in a local college who would love the opportunity to work as a proofreader for low pay. TAKE ADVANTAGE! The ubiquity of grammatical and typographical errors in SoccerAmerica make it an embarrassment as a professional publication.
