It was another busy week for Americans playing abroad with goals for Aron Johannsson and Danny Williams and an injury for Julian Green.

Oguchi Onyewu and Michael Orozco are also on the trainer's table after suffering weekend injuries.

Read about all that and much, much more in this week's edition of the Americans Abroad Wrap.

The English Premier League Boys

Tim Howard and Everton beat Arsenal, 3-0. Howard finished with five saves.

Jozy Altidore and Sunderland play Tottenham tomorrow. Sunderland have three games in hand over most of the other teams at the bottom of the English Premier League table, but they find themselves rooted to the bottom with only 25 points and eight games to go.

Geoff Cameron played the first half of Stoke's 3-0 loss to Chelsea. Brek Shea did not make the 18 for Stoke.

Brad Guzan made five saves for Aston Villa, but they still lost, 2-1, to Fulham.

Ze Germans

Julian Green, according to a tweet from his father, must rest his shoulder for three weeks. During the U.S.'s international friendly this week, in which Green made his international debut for the United States, he apparently injured it while falling.

Fabian Johnson's Hoffenheim and John Anthony Brooks' Hertha Berlin played each other with both men starting. Johnson went the distance at right-back, while Brooks played 62 minutes at center-back. The game finished 1-1.

Timmy Chandler is still out injured for Nurnberg, who are in relegation danger with only five games to go.

In Bundesliga 2, Alfredo Morales' Ingolstadt does not play until Monday. Bobby Wood did not get off the bench this weekend for 1860 Munich.

In the English Championship

Danny Williams played 90 minutes, scored the game-winning goal and garnered Man of the Match honors in Reading's 1-0 win over Charlton.

Oguchi Onyewu started Sheffield Wednesday's 2-1 loss to Leicester, but he came off at halftime with a rib injury, according to reports:

Jonathan Spector played 90 minutes at center-mid for Birmingham in their 3-1 win over Doncaster. Will Packwood was in the squad but did not play.

Tim Ream and Bolton beat Huddersfield, 1-0, with Ream going the distance at left-back. Duane Holmes played the final 14 minutes for Huddersfield. Stuart Holden is out injured for Bolton.

Eric Lichaj is still out injured for Nottingham Forest.

Elsewhere in Europe

Aron Johannsson and AZ Alkmaar tied Roda, 2-2, with Johannsson scoring one goal (video here) and assisting on the other.

Jermaine Jones and Besiktas picked up a 2-1 victory with Jones going 90 minutes and picking up a yellow card.

Juan Agudelo came on at the half for Utrecht, but they fell to ADO Den Haag, 4-1.

Terrence Boyd did not play for Rapid Vienna this weekend.

Mix Diskerud was an unused substitute for Molde this weekend.

Sacha Kljestan did not start for Anderlecht again this weekend.

Alejandro Bedoya and Nantes play Monaco later today.

Conor O’Brien did not get off the bench for OB this weekend.

Molde's Josh Gatt is injured.

South of the Border

Edgar Castillo and Joe Corona started in Tijuana's 3-1 win over Toluca. Corona came off in the 83rd minute, while Greg Garza was an 89th-minute substitute. Herculez Gomez did not get off the bench, while Paul Arriola was not in the 18 for Tijuana.

DaMarcus Beasley, Michael Orozco and Puebla tied Atlas, 0-0. Both started, but Orozco came off in the 22nd minute with what is being reported as a hamstring injury:

Jose Torres and Tigres play later today.
