Wolves have been flirting with the drop zone all season long, but against fellow relegation-threatened Burnley, Marcus Hahnemann did his best to improve Wolves' chances of staying another year in England's top flight.

Hahnemann made his 16th consecutive start for Wolves and had one of his busiest days of the year, making a season-high eight saves en route to a 2-1 victory that ended a four-game losing streak. The win places Wolves three points above the relegation zone with 27, and might serve as a boost in confidence as the team enters a stretch of three league games in eight days.

Landon Donovan didn't get a win this weekend, but he is likely high in confidence right now as he closed out a successful ten-week loan with Everton. In what was likely his last game with the club, Donovan came off the bench and played 23 minutes in a 2-2 draw against Birmingham. 

Donovan may have said bye to Everton, but there was one American who was saying hello to a new league. Chris Rolfe made his debut for Aalborg BK, coming off the bench for a 20-minute cameo in a 2-0 loss to FC Midtjylland.

Here is how the Americans Abroad fared this weekend:
