Americans Abroad: Weekend Rewind

Brad_friedel_ap

The funeral march for Fulham’s life in the English Premier League is in full swing.

The Cottagers’ tie vs. Derby has all but assured that the American army of Fulham players will be dispersing come the summer. As if the poor result wasn’t enough, having Clint Dempsey and Carlos Bocanegra sit on the bench all match provided insult to injury for American fans of Fulham.

It wasn’t all bad news for Americans abroad. Nate Jaqua continued his takeover of Austria with another goal while Danny Szetela saw more playing time for Brescia, clocking 35 minutes in a victory. The battle of American goalkeepers between Marcus Hahnemann and Brad Friedel ended, as you would expect, in a scoreless draw.
