USA 2737 2341 Americans Abroad - Jan. 10 - 13 32002746 Global affair Global+affair USA

Fulham changed when Clint Dempsey left for Tottenham. It took a bit of time, but the cracks appeared as Dempsey meandered his way toward Seattle. His temporary return to Craven Cottage exposed the weakness within the ranks. This squad isn't coasting toward midtable. It is fighting for its life with a returning hero now leading the way. The early returns in the 4-1 home defeat to Sunderland on Saturday suggest Dempsey faces a significant task to ensure he leaves Fulham in the proper stead before he returns to MLS.

 

Dempsey's start at Craven Cottage warranted top billing during a busy weekend for Americans Abroad. Read on to learn more about Dempsey's miserable afternoon and Oguchi Onyewu's new home in the Championship:

USA 2737 2341 Americans Abroad - Jan. 10 - 13 31999206 Clint Dempsey, F, Fulham Clint+Dempsey%2C+F%2C+Fulham USA

Sunderland ruined Dempsey's return to Craven Cottage with a 4-1 victory over Fulham on Saturday. Dempsey earned a place in the starting XI to mark his second home debut for the Cottagers, but he could do little in his 79-minute spell to thwart the defeat. Adam Johnson snatched a hat trick for the visitors to drag Rene Meulensteen's side within two points of the relegation zone.

USA 2737 2341 Americans Abroad - Jan. 10 - 13 32002744 Tim Howard, GK, Everton Tim+Howard%2C+GK%2C+Everton USA

Gareth Barry and Kevin Mirallas scored either side of halftime to give the Toffees a comfortable 2-0 victory over Norwich at Goodison Park on Saturday. Howard claimed yet another shutout after making three saves and watching Robert Snodgrass crash an effort off the post in the waning stages of the affair. The triumph left Everton in the fourth and final Champions League place at the close of play on Saturday.

USA 2737 2341 Americans Abroad - Jan. 10 - 13 32003566 Geoff Cameron, D, Stoke City Geoff+Cameron%2C+D%2C+Stoke+City USA

Cameron assumed his usual duties at right back in the thrilling 5-3 home defeat to Liverpool on Sunday. The back-and-forth affair involved four goals in either half and a Luis Suárez double as Brendan Rogers' side returned to the top four at the end of Sunday. Stoke now sits in 12th place, four points clear of the relegation zone.

USA 2737 2341 Americans Abroad - Jan. 10 - 13 32002747 Oguchi Onyewu, D, Sheffield Wednesday Oguchi+Onyewu%2C+D%2C+Sheffield+Wednesday USA

Onyewu confirmed his free transfer move from QPR to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday. The short-term deal with the Owls runs through the end of the season and supplies Onyewu with the opportunity to carve out some playing time ahead of the World Cup. Onyewu's arrival completed a fantastic Saturday for Wednesday after the Owls dispatched Yorkshire rivals Leeds United 6-0 at Hillsbrough.

All three American internationals featured from the outset in the Xolos' 1-0 victory over Club América on Friday night. Castillo contributed to Cristian Pellerano's winner three minutes from time with a dangerous service at the conclusion of an incisive run, while Corona and Gomez played their parts in Tijuana's effective display. Paul Arriola also featured as a second-half substitute in the Xolos' first win under new boss César Farías.
