USA 2737 43 Americans Abroad: October 25-27 31946762 Americans abroad Americans+abroad USA

Jozy Altidore thought he joined a club ready to climb the table when he signed for Sunderland in the summer. Those misplaced beliefs guided Sunderland to the bottom of the table and left Altidore trying to adjust to his second manager of the season by October. A great escape fueled by Gus Poyet's arrival and the ensuing response by the liberated squad remains on the table, though. It will take more performances like the one submitted in the 2-1 victory over Newcastle on Sunday to produce it. Altidore will hope to replicate his contribution from that tie – a vital role in Fabio Borini's winner – time and time again to help fuel Sunderland's resurgence.

 

Altidore's first win of the campaign highlighted a successful weekend for Americans Abroad. Read on to learn more about Michael Bradley's return from injury and Tim Howard's stellar display against Brad Guzan's Aston Villa.

USA 2737 43 Americans Abroad: October 25-27 31946764 Jozy Altidore, Sunderland forward Jozy+Altidore%2C+Sunderland+forward USA

Altidore marked his return to the starting lineup with a clever layoff to prompt Fabio Borini's winner in the 2-1 triumph over Newcastle on Sunday. His deft touch allowed Borini to smash home and snatch a first Premier League win of the campaign. Altidore and his teammates will hope to build upon this victory to start their lengthy march out of the relegation zone.

USA keeper No. one defeated USA keeper No. two as Howard produced several fine saves to propel Everton to a 2-0 victory at Aston Villa on Saturday. Howard dove to push away Christian Benteke's penalty in the first half to set the stage for Romelu Lukaku and Leon Osman to secure the points in the second half. The result lifted Everton into the Champions League places by Saturday night.

USA 2737 43 Americans Abroad: October 25-27 31946763 Geoff Cameron, Stoke City defender Geoff+Cameron%2C+Stoke+City+defender USA

Cameron once again featured from the start for Stoke City, but the conclusion provided the talking points in Manchester United's 3-2 victory at Old Trafford on Saturday. Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernández struck in the final quarter of an hour to deprive Stoke of a hard-earned result. Cameron played the entire 90 minutes as part of a Stoke performance that can provide a platform to build upon for the remainder of the campaign.

USA 2737 43 Americans Abroad: October 25-27 31948745 Oguchi Onyewu, Queens Park Rangers defender Oguchi+Onyewu%2C+Queens+Park+Rangers+defender USA

Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp revealed in midweek he pursued Onyewu's signature after United States coach Jurgen Klinsmann called him to offer a strong endorsement. Klinsmann's backing – including perhaps an overstated assessment of Onyewu's chances for a berth in the World Cup squad – prompted Redknapp to extend a short-term contract offer, but it did not entice him to throw Onyewu straight into the mix. The veteran center back (seen here playing for the USMNT) watched from the bench as an unused substitute in QPR's 2-0 defeat at Burnley on Saturday.

USA 2737 43 Americans Abroad: October 25-27 31946767 Michael Bradley, AS Roma midfielder Michael+Bradley%2C+AS+Roma+midfielder USA

Bradley celebrated his return from an ankle injury by notching the winner in Roma's 1-0 victory over Udinese on Sunday. The industrious midfielder entered the fray after 78 minutes and stamped his imprint on the game by thrashing home four minutes later. The late goal extended Roma's winning streak to nine matches and reinforced his claims for a return to the starting XI at some point in the near future.

USA 2737 43 Americans Abroad: October 25-27 31946769 Timothy Chandler, FC Nurnberg defender Timothy+Chandler%2C+FC+Nurnberg+defender USA

United States assistant coach Andi Herzog traveled to the Mercedes-Benz Arena to evaluate Chandler in person on Friday, according to the Washington Post. Chandler did not squander the opportunity presented in the 1-1 draw. The exiled right back provided the service for Josip Drmic's sixth-minute equalizer as part of an impressive shift. He will hope those efforts lead to an international recall ahead of a pair of friendlies against Scotland and Austria next month.

USA 2737 43 Americans Abroad: October 25-27 31946770 Paul Arriola, Edgar Castillo, Joe Corona and Herculez Gomez, Club Tijuana and Jose Torres, Tigres midfielder Paul+Arriola%2C+Edgar+Castillo%2C+Joe+Corona+and+Herculez+Gomez%2C+Club+Tijuana+and+Jose+Torres%2C+Tigres+midfielder+ USA

All five players featured at some stage of the 1-1 draw between the two sides at Estadio Caliente on Friday. Arriola, Castillo and Corona (back in favor after a recent spell on the bench) all started for the Xolos, while Gomez and Torres both entered as second-half substitutes. The five players contributed to a stalemate that leaves both teams four points out of the Liguilla with two rounds (and three Tigres matches) remaining in the Apertura.
