Brad Guzan normally handles Aston Villa's cup competition duties, but fellow American Brad Friedel gets the nod today in FA Cup action against Crystal Palace.
Friedel is the starter for Villa today vs. Crystal Palace in the fifth round of the FA Cup. The Fifth Round of the FA Cup could also offer an opportunity for another American, midfielder Stuart Holden, who could make his first-team debut for Bolton when the Wanderers take on Tottenham (or not).
The quality soccer action will also take us to Italy, where Napoli-Inter and Juventus-Genoa, as well as Argentina, where Estudiantes-Independiente will be South America's top tilt.
