Yanks Strike Abroad

As we get ready for the SuperBowl here in the states, to recent expatriates who play the "world" version of football made an immediate impact this weekend. Striker Clint Mathis claimed the second of Hannover's 3 goals today in a 3-2 win over Hamburg. US defender Steve Cherundolo played his usual match in the back line for Hannover as well.

Meanwhile, in London yesterday Brian McBride came on in the 59th minute for Fulham and netted the game winner 8 minutes later, heading a rebound into US keeper Kasey Keller's net. Fulham beat Tottenham 2-1.

Well done, guys! Too bad Leeds didn't snap up any of this American talent before the transfer window closed - bottom of the table and a 0-3 loss to 'Boro this weekend. :(
