USA 2737 8 Galarcep: Top five Americans Abroad - Oct. 29-30, 2011 30316821 Captain America Captain+America USA

First place is becoming a familiar position for several Americans plying their trade in Europe.

 

Sacha Kljestan and Jozy Altidore helped their teams record victories as Anderlecht and AZ Alkmaar boasted six-point leads in the Belgian Jupiler League and Dutch Eredivisie respectively. First place is nothing new for the Glasgow Rangers trio of Maurice Edu, Carlos Bocanegra, and Alejandro Bedoya either, as the players saw their respective club open up a staggering nine-point lead atop the Scottish Premier League.

 

Teammates Josh Gatt and Sean Cunningham became the latest American players to win championship medals after seeing their club, Molde, win the Norwegian League championship.

 

One player whose team is closing in on first place is Jermaine Jones, who has regained his starting role with Schalke 04 and now has the club in second place in the German Bundesliga, just four points behind leaders Bayern Munich. Oguchi Onyewu has also played a key role for Sporting Lisbon, who currently sits in third place in the Primeira League.

 

So which Americans playing abroad enjoyed some individual success this past week? Here are five who stood out:

USA 2737 8 Galarcep: Top five Americans Abroad - Oct. 29-30, 2011 30320687 Clint Dempsey, M, Fulham Clint+Dempsey%2C+M%2C+Fulham+ USA

The U.S. national team star scored a landmark goal during Fulham’s 2-0 victory against Wigan, tying former U.S. teammate Brian McBride for the most career Premier League goals by an American with 36.

 

Already the holder of the Fulham team record for goals in the Premier League, Dempsey has scored three league goals on the season, and five in all competitions.

USA 2737 8 Galarcep: Top five Americans Abroad - Oct. 29-30, 2011 30320685 Sacha Kljestan, M, Anderlecht Sacha+Kljestan%2C+M%2C+Anderlecht USA

The former Chivas USA midfielder has yet to get a minute of playing time for new U.S. head coach Jurgen Klinsmann, but Kljestan may be forcing his way into the radar as he plays a key role in Anderlecht’s outstanding season. Kljestan enjoyed another standout performance, recording a goal and assist in Anderlecht’s 4-0 win versus Lierse on Sunday.

USA 2737 8 Galarcep: Top five Americans Abroad - Oct. 29-30, 2011 30320688 DaMarcus Beasley, W, Puebla DaMarcus+Beasley%2C+W%2C+Puebla USA

Though he didn’t score a goal, Beasley once again put in a strong performance for Puebla, helping the Mexican club defeat Club America, 3-2, on Sunday to stay in contention for a playoff berth in the Mexican Primera.

 

Beasley has rejuvenated his career with Puebla, showing the trademark speed and shiftiness that made him a U.S. national team fixture for the better part of a decade. With the form he is on, Beasley should receive another look from the national team for the November friendlies.

USA 2737 8 Galarcep: Top five Americans Abroad - Oct. 29-30, 2011 30320689 Jermaine Jones, M, Schalke 04 Jermaine+Jones%2C+M%2C+Schalke+04 USA

Jones continues to make a strong case for a return to the U.S. national team set-up as he and Schalke climbed to second place in the Bundesliga with a win against fellow German-Americans Daniel Williams and Fabian Johnson.

 

Since escaping the Schalke doghouse after the hiring of new manager Huub Stevens, Jones has become a fixture in the lineup, and he posted another pair of 90-minute appearances last week, helping the club post wins in the German Cup and Bundesliga.

USA 2737 8 Galarcep: Top five Americans Abroad - Oct. 29-30, 2011 30320690 Sonny Guadarrama, M, Atlante Sonny+Guadarrama%2C+M%2C+Atlante USA

The 24-year-old midfielder has struggled for playing time with Mexican club Atlante, but made the most of a chance this weekend as he came off the bench at halftime and drew an equalizing penalty in Atlante’s 4-4 draw against Morelia on Sunday.

 

A former U.S. Under-20 national team player, Guadarrama has found little playing time this season, but finally earned some after some strong performances on the Atlante reserve team.
