USA 2737 2341 Americans Abroad: May 17-19 31759939 Clint Dempsey, Tottenham Clint+Dempsey%2C+Tottenham USA

Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny dashed Spurs' top-four hopes by snatching the winner at St. James' Park, but Gareth Bale handed Tottenham all three points with his goal a minute before time at White Hart Lane. Bale sumptuously curled home from 25 yards to keep Spurs' Champions League hopes alive. Newcastle's failure to muster an equalizer, however, condemned Andre Villas-Boas' side to a fifth-place finish and yet another year in the Europa League.

USA 2737 2341 Americans Abroad: May 17-19 31759940 Tim Howard, Everton Tim+Howard%2C+Everton USA

Fernando Torres ruined David Moyes' final match in charge by notching a late winner in Chelsea's 2-1 victory at Stamford Bridge on Sunday. Torres' first Premier League goal since December decided the affair and secured third place for the home side. Howard started as usual in Moyes' final match in charge as sixth-placed Everton once again earned bragging rights over Liverpool after finishing ahead of their Merseyside rivals.

USA 2737 2341 Americans Abroad: May 17-19 31759942 Brad Guzan, Aston Villa Brad+Guzan%2C+Aston+Villa USA

Villa ended the season in 15th place after a 2-2 draw against former relegation rivals Wigan at the JJB Stadium on Sunday. Out-of-favor striker Darren Bent celebrated his recall with a goal after five minutes, but Emmerson Boyce and a Nathan Baker own goal before halftime handed Wigan an opportunity to end its eight-year stay with a victory. Ron Vlaar brought Villa level on the hour mark to give Paul Lambert's side a draw in the final match of the campaign.

USA 2737 2341 Americans Abroad: May 17-19 31759943 Geoff Cameron, Stoke Geoff+Cameron%2C+Stoke USA

Cameron capped off a successful first season in the Premier League by playing all 90 minutes in Stoke's 1-1 draw at Southampton on Sunday. Peter Crouch and Rickie Lambert exchanged goals in the opening stages of the second half to ensure the two sides shared the spoils in a meaningless final day fixture.

Stoke finished the 2012-13 campaign in 13th place. The usual mid-table finish marked another solid result for a club still punching about its weight, but the increased chatter surrounding Tony Pulis' position could place the club's current operating principles in doubt heading into next season.

USA 2737 2341 Americans Abroad: May 17-19 31759937 Steve Cherundolo, Hannover Steve+Cherundolo%2C+Hannover USA

Cherundolo and his Hannover teammates threw Johnson a Bundesliga lifeline by coasting to a 3-0 victory over Fortuna Düsseldorf on Sunday. The veteran right back celebrated his recent one-year contract extension by playing the entire affair for the mid-table side. Mame Biram Diouf opened the scoring shortly after the half hour and Didier Ya Konan tacked on two goals in the second half to condemn Düsseldorf to an immediate return to the 2.Bundesliga.

USA 2737 2341 Americans Abroad: May 17-19 31759938 Fabian Johnson, Hoffenheim Fabian+Johnson%2C+Hoffenheim USA

Hoffenheim escaped the guaranteed relegation places at the last possible moment with a stunning 2-1 victory at Borussia Dortmund on Sunday. Sejad Salihovic converted twice from the spot inside the final quarter of an hour – including the winner past makeshift goalkeeper Kevin Großkreutz in the wake of Roman Weidenfeller's dismissal – to improbably cancel out Robert Lewandowski's sixth-minute opener. The visitors then received a last-minute reprieve after the referee ruled Marcel Schmelzer's long-distance equalizer when Lewandowski joined the play in an offside position.

Hoffenheim now faces a playoff with 2.Bundesliga side Kaiserslautern to claim its place in the German top flight next season.

USA 2737 2341 Americans Abroad: May 17-19 31759941 Narrow escape Narrow+escape USA

Steve Cherundolo and Fabian Johnson combined to conjure up a dramatic last-day escape for TSG Hoffenheim on Sunday. Johnson's Hoffenheim started the day destined for the drop, but a comprehensive home victory by Cherundolo's Hannover 96 over relegation rivals Fortuna Düsseldorf opened the door for a potential miracle. Hoffenheim – with the help of a pair of penalty awards, the dismissal of Roman Weidenfeller and a stoppage-time salvation by the offside flag – somehow managed to walk through it with a 2-1 victory at Champions League finalists Borussia Dortmund.

Hoffenheim's improbable move into the playoff places – Johnson and his teammates will attempt to secure their Bundesliga futures in a playoff against Kaiserslautern – offered the dramatic pinnacle to a busy weekend for Americans Abroad. Read on to learn more about the final day drama in Germany and the denouement to the Premier League season.
