Here's who has been hot (and cold) over the weekend among Americans abroad ... HOT. Brad Guzan.
Thanks to his
eight saves, 10-man Aston Villa held on to earn a share of the points with Manchester United in a 1-1 tie that snapped United's winning streak at six games. The eight stops tie him for the Premier
League lead with Queens Park Rangers keeper Rob Green
(60 saves). On the move ... DeAndre Yedlin
will be able to join Tottenham from the Seattle Sounders in January after the Sunday People reported
he had earned a Governing Body Endorsement -- the work permit he needs to play in the
English Premier League. If he had not been approved, he would have had to seek a Latvian passport -- through his grandmother. COLD. John Brooks
. Those glowing remarks from his Hertha Berlin coach after standout game a week ago against Borussia Dortmund may have been a jinx as Brooks had a
nightmare against Hoffenheim, scoring an own goal in the 23rd minute. It went downhill from there as he conceded a penalty three minutes later, and Hertha went on to lose at home, 5-0.
HOT. Rubio Rubin.
The 18-year-old attacker from Oregon had an assist on Frenchman Edouard
's second goal in FC Utrecht's 3-0 win at AZ to finish his first fall campaign as a pro with five assists, tied for sixth in the Eredivisie, to go along with two goals. Eredivisie Assist Leaders: A PLAYER, TEAM, COUNTRY AGE 8 Davy Klaassen

Lori Lindsay, Stephanie Ochs
Lindsay, the 34-year-old midfielder, closed out her career on top as Canberra United won Australia's FFA Cup final with a 3-1 win over Perth
Glory. Ochs scored the first goal in the W-League grand final, and Jones stopped a penalty kick for Canberra United. Lindsay is one of the few players to have played in all three U.S. pro leagues --
WUSA, WPS and the NWSL. She had announced in August her intention to retire at the end of the year. COLD. Freddy Adu.
At the age of 25 -- hard to believe -- Adu finds himself at a crossroads in a career that has already taken him to 10 clubs in 10 years. After six months at FK Jagodina, the Serbian club parted
ways with Adu, who did not play a single league match.
