Americans Abroad

With several leagues on break and snow disrupting the English calendar, few U.S. players were in action this weekend:

GOALKEEPERS
Tim Howard 90 minutes in Everton's 2-2 tie at Arsenal
DEFENDERS
Carlos Bocanegra in 18, didn't play in Rennes' 2-0 French Cup win over Caen
Edgar Castillo 90 in Tigres' 2-2 Interliga draw with Jaguares
MIDFIELDERS
Landon Donovan 68 in Everton's 2-2 tie at Arsenal
(The Times of London has nice things to say: "It was a remarkable debut and Moyes confirmed that he had not seen a debutant fit in so smoothly before.")
Maurice Edu in 18, didn't play in Rangers' 3-3 Scottish Cup tie at Hamilton
DaMarcus Beasley (injured) not in 18 for Rangers
FORWARDS
Freddy Adu, Eddie Johnson not in 18 for Aris' 4-2 win over Iraklis
(Awaiting completion of loan paperwork)
Mike Grella 6 in Leeds' 1-1 tie with Wycombe

Herculez Gomez just went for most of the game for Puebla in their 2-1 loss to Monterrey. Who replaced him? Carlos Ruiz.

Thanks, Chest_Rockwell. That's just what my night needed. I just threw up a little.

Since Aris has won last their two games (3-0 and 4-2), EJ and Adu probably won't be inserted into the starting lineup right away.

Actually Aris won their 4 out of their last 5 games.

Charisma, that has me worried. It could be DejAdu.

That's a stern talking to and a finger wag. Next one is a yellow card....

Algeria v Malawi

http://www.atdhe.net/11619/watch-malawi-vs-algeria

Alegeria looks very beatable so far. I think that's three points we can get in South Africa this summer.

hi alan19 or anyone - do you know if they'll be showing the african nations cup games on tv as well? i know last cup it wasn't widely publicized but they showed most every game on MHz8 or similar but it's not on right now

It all depends on what US team shows up, Alan. Morocco, El Salvador, Costa Rica all seem to come to mind as games in recent memory that the US was supposed to get wins and didn't. The list gets longer the farther back you go (Iran,ect). Sure, they've come a long way and are a good side, but they aren't good enough to look past anyone.

If Algeria allows us as much space as they are giving Malawi, we are going to dismantle them...But you are right, which US team shows up will be what our whole Cup experience is going to boil down to...

Gosh as far as where to watch the games, the last African Cup I called around to a few African restaurants in Adams Morgan and a couple were carrying individual games. You might wanna try that route...Otherwise online is the best bet...

ok, thanks!

@alan19:
How do you know that this is Algeria's full squad? most of their WC starters play in Europe. Also,remember when they beat West Germany in the world cup...
just sayin', not ready to jump to conclusions. Coach Peter
