USA 2737 8 Americans Abroad -- gallery 31361656 Brad Friedel, GK, Tottenham Brad+Friedel%2C+GK%2C+Tottenham USA

Brad Friedel knew his lengthy streak of consecutive appearances wouldn't last forever, but he hardly could have expected it to end in the middle of a fine patch of form. Friedel watched his run of 310 straight starts in Barclays Premier League play conclude ahead of Tottenham's 2-0 victory over Aston Villa on Sunday. Spurs boss André Villas-Boas called Friedel's recent performances “immense” in the post-game press conference, but he said he handed new – and expensive – signing Hugo Lloris his first league start to give the French number one an extended run of games in the side.

Friedel's demotion drew the biggest headlines during a busy weekend for Americans Abroad. Read on to see who else made the list – for better or for worse.

All of the discussion surrounding Friedel's status obscured yet another good performance from Dempsey and another victory for resurgent Spurs. Dempsey started again in the 2-0 victory against Aston Villa on Sunday and went 82 minutes as André Villas-Boas continued to reap the benefits from his revamped squad. The US international midfielder even supplied Aaron Lennon for the second goal to seal the points and sustain Spurs' recent revival. It seems “Deuce” has settled in nicely in his new London home at White Hart Lane.

Bradley marked his return from a thigh injury with the second goal in Roma's 2-0 home victory over Atalanta on Sunday. The midfielder polished off a rebound from close range after 62 minutes to collect the critical second goal. US head coach Jürgen Klinsmann – and fans across America – will take heart from Bradley's 72-minute spell ahead of the upcoming World Cup qualifying matches. The USA will face Antigua & Barbuda and Guatemala in the next week and a half, and Klinsmann could throw Bradley straight back into his lineup if the midfielder feels no ill effects from his exertions.

USA 2737 8 Americans Abroad -- gallery 31361657 Jozy Altidore, F, AZ Alkmaar Jozy+Altidore%2C+F%2C+AZ+Alkmaar USA

Altidore suffered a rather unexpected setback to his prolific start to the season in AZ's 3-0 defeat to Eredivisie leaders FC Twente on Sunday. The in-form striker procured a pair of bookings in a matter of seconds to prompt his first red card of the season after 52 minutes. Altidore earned the initial caution for dissent after Adam Maher had a penalty claim turned down and then saw his second yellow card after mockingly applauding the referee's decision to book him. Altidore will now miss AZ's next match against NEC on Oct. 20.

USA 2737 8 Americans Abroad -- gallery 31361655 Herculez Gomez, M/F, Santos Laguna Herculez+Gomez%2C+M%2FF%2C+Santos+Laguna USA

Gómez staked his claim for another start for the United States by finding the score sheet in Santos' 1-1 draw with Querétaro on Saturday. He notched his fourth goal of the season shortly before halftime by latching onto a Marc Crosas pass and tucking home coolly after 37 minutes. Luis Angel Landin's equalizer canceled out Gómez's tally after 52 minutes to hold Liguilla-chasing Santos to a draw.

USA 2737 8 Americans Abroad -- gallery 31361653 Maurice Edu, M, Stoke City Maurice+Edu%2C+M%2C+Stoke+City USA

The former Rangers midfielder made his Premier League debut in the late stages of Stoke City's 0-0 draw with Liverpool on Sunday. Edu replaced Charlie Adam for the final nine minutes as the Potters held on for a solid away point at Anfield. In other relevant news from Anfield, Geoff Cameron retained his spot at right back in Tony Pulis' starting XI and played all 90 minutes in the stalemate. The versatile Cameron probably won’t see any minutes at right back for the national team, but consistent playing time at Stoke will have to do for now. He has proven in the past that he is capable of adjusting his mindset to a new position rather quickly, so as long as he stays game fit he should be set to go for Klinsmann – wherever he’s needed.
