Jermaine Jones' road to a full recovery took another step in the right direction, as Jones did something that he had not done in more than a year.

Jones started and played a full 90 minutes in a Bundesliga match for the first time since May 2009 in Schalke 04's season-opening loss to Hamburg. The full match was Jones' second straight after having played the entirety of last week's DFP Pokal match. 

A pair of Americans also scored goals in their respective matches. Sacha Kljestan scored his first Belgian League goal with a header in RSC Anderlecht's 3-0 win over KSC Lokeren, while Sammy Ochoa took advantage of a goalkeeping howler in Tecos' 3-2 triumph against San Luis.

Clarence Goodson also netted this weekend, but he did so against his own team. Goodson opened the scoring in IK Start's 2-2 tie with Viking by heading the ball into his own net.
