His first goal came from a header on to a Niclas Weiland cross in the 23rd minute. The second goal came from some nifty play in a crowded penalty area where he was at the right place at the right time to poke it in at the 72nd minute.

English Premier League

Southampton vs Blackburn (3-2)

Brad Friedel was on the short end of this match as his defense let him down all afternoon. A penalty kick by James Beattie was the difference in this game. Brad gave a valiant effort as it was obvious that he wasn’t fully healthy. Defender Nils-Eric Johannson took the goal kicks on this day.

Fulham vs Bolton (2-0)

Carlos Bocanegra went the distance in Fulham’s triumphant return to Craven Cottage. He had a tough assignment on this day as he found himself defending against Jay-Jay Okocha but as the scoreline showed Bolton did not get any goals.

Brian McBride came on in the 69th minute for Canadian international Tomas Radzinski. As both these guys played World Cup Qualifyers at mid-week, it was a struggle to be at full fitness.

Liverpool vs Manchester City (2-1)

Claudio Reyna went the distance in the loss at Anfield. Reyna was somewhat responsible for giving up the tying goal when a bad clearance was picked up by England midfielder Steven Gerrard who found Milan Baros who buried it past City keeper David James.

English League Championship

Bobby Convey made his second consecutive start for the Royals.

French Ligue 1

Bastia vs AC Ajaccio (1-0)

Greg Vanney went the distance in the first edition of the Corsican derby. Bastia continue their fine form going unbeaten through their first 3 matches. Greg’s corner kick on the 70th minute took a fortunate bounce off a Bastia teammate only to find it’s way to Fabrice Jau who buried it for the game’s only goal.

Dutch Eredvisie

PSV Eindhoven vs AZ Alkmaar (5-1)

DaMarcus Beasley started in his customary left wing position. He was subbed out in the 50th minute for Leandro Do Bonfim.


English League Championship

Preston North End vs Sheffield United (0-1)

Eddie Lewis started and went the distance for Preston as they lost their second in a row and have gone winless in their last three. Eddie had a couple of good chances. One was was a hard shot on goal which was tipped away from goal by Blades keeper Paddy Kenny. Another was from a free-kick which hit the top of the crossbar.

Note: As my Swedish & Norwegian improve, expect to see more detailed reports from those leagues.
