USA 2737 8 Galarcep: Top 5 Americans Abroad - Mar. 30-April 1, 2012 30862182 Big dreamin' Big+dreamin%27 USA

While last week saw a flurry of goals scored by American overseas, this past weekend marked an overwhelming number of victories posted by Americans abroad.

 

No fewer than a dozen Americans started and played key roles in victories in Europe’s top leagues and Mexico, with five different Americans tasting victory in the Premier League.

 

Tim Howard’s Everton climbed closer to a Europa League berth with a shutout win against West Brom. The victory, coupled with Liverpool’s loss to Newcastle on Sunday, helped the Toffees move past their arch-rivals in the Premier League standings ahead of their highly-anticipated FA Cup semifinal clash in two weeks.

 

Fellow American goalkeeper Brad Friedel helped Tottenham stop their recent slide, and tie Arsenal for third place in the Premier League, by containing Swansea on Sunday.

 

Tim Ream continues to fit in nicely for Bolton, and he was in the starting lineup yet again in the Trotters’ 3-2 victory against Wolves that helps keep Bolton out of the relegation zone. Ream’s played every minute in the team’s three-match winning streak.

 

In Mexico, Jose Torres helped Pachuca post a 1-0 victory against Club Tijuana that helped the Tuzos move past Tijuana into sixth place in the Mexican League standings. Red-hot American striker Herculez Gomez was sidelined by injury, but his Santos Laguna side stayed in first place with another win.

 

The aforementioned players were just some of the Americans who enjoyed good weekends. Here are five of the biggest standouts of the past weekend:

USA 2737 8 Galarcep: Top 5 Americans Abroad - Mar. 30-April 1, 2012 30862184 Clint Dempsey, M/F, Fulham Clint+Dempsey%2C+M%2FF%2C+Fulham USA

The leading American goal-scorer in Europe added his latest tally, finishing off a tap-in early in Fulham’s 2-1 victory against Norwich City. Dempsey set up another goal with a beautiful pass to Damien Duff for what was ultimately the game-winning goal, and almost added a second goal when he struck a shot off the post. Dempsey now has 13 Premier League goals, and 19 goals in all competitions.

USA 2737 8 Galarcep: Top 5 Americans Abroad - Mar. 30-April 1, 2012 30862183 DaMarcus Beasley, W, Puebla DaMarcus+Beasley%2C+W%2C+Puebla USA

Having shaken off an ankle injury that originally threatened his season, Beasley returned to action and provided the game-winning assist in Puebla’s 1-0 victory against Queretaro. Beasley raced down the left flank before laying off a perfect pass that Lucas Silva finished off for the game-winning score.
 

Stew Milne-US PRESSWIRE - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fsc/img/2012/04/02/4_20120402014336387_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fsc/img/2012/04/02/4_20120402014336387_107_80.JPG
USA 2737 8 Galarcep: Top 5 Americans Abroad - Mar. 30-April 1, 2012 30862181 Steve Cherundolo, D, Hannover Steve+Cherundolo%2C+D%2C+Hannover USA

The veteran American defender was a key figure in Hannover 96’s 2-1 victory against Borussia Monchengladbach. Cherundolo went the full 90 minutes and locked down his side of the field, forcing Monchengladbach standout Juan Arango to float elsewhere on the field for room to operate. Hannover’s in a Europa League place and have not lost a home game in more than a year.

USA 2737 8 Galarcep: Top 5 Americans Abroad - Mar. 30-April 1, 2012 30860356 Michael Bradley, M, Chievo Michael+Bradley%2C+M%2C+Chievo USA

The US national team midfielder continues to be among Chievo’s key figures and he put in another strong showing in the club’s 1-0 victory against Fiorentina. Deployed as the left midfielder in Chievo’s diamond, Bradley set up shop in the middle of the field and forced Fiorentina to work around him to try and generate chances. Chievo’s latest victory moved them to tenth place in Serie A.

Brad Mills-US PRESSWIRE - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fsc/img/2012/04/02/6_20120402014336384_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fsc/img/2012/04/02/6_20120402014336384_107_80.JPG
USA 2737 8 Galarcep: Top 5 Americans Abroad - Mar. 30-April 1, 2012 30862180 Eric Lichaj, D, Aston Villa Eric+Lichaj%2C+D%2C+Aston+Villa USA

Earning his first Premier League start in more than a year, Lichaj enjoyed a standout showing for Aston Villa, recording a goal and an assist in Villa’s 4-2 loss to Chelsea. Playing in place of injured starting right back Alan Hutton, Lichaj provided a threat on the right flank, and became just the third American defender to score a goal in the Premier League.

Gary A. Vasquez-US PRESSWIRE - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fsc/img/2012/04/02/2_20120402014336385_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fsc/img/2012/04/02/2_20120402014336385_107_80.JPG
