Americans Abroad: Eddie Johnson Scores Goal for Greek Club Aris Salonika

Eddie Johnson

Forward Eddie Johnson scored the opening goal in the Greek Super League 1-1 draw between Aris Salonika and Panionios.  The 11th minute goal was Johnson’s second since joining the Greek club during the January transfer window.   

Striker Vedad Ibisevic of Hoffenheim started and played the first 72 minutes in Hoffenheim’s scoreless draw at Nurnberg.  Defender Frank Simek made the bench but did not play for Sheffield Wednesday in their scoreless draw Saturday with Derby County.  Ibisevic attended Roosevelt High School and St. Louis University and Simek attended Saint Louis University High School.

In other news, Landon Donovan returned to Los Angeles to resume playing for the Galaxy after a very successful loan spell at Everton.  And happily, a potential strike by MLS was averted as the league and players came to an agreement late in the week.  Also, among the injured players who have US national team aspirations, Sochaux’ Charlie Davies began training during the week and Bolton’s Stuart Holden had his cast removed after being on the receiving end of a crunching tackle in the Netherlands-US international friendly a few weeks ago.   Things are looking up as key players are getting healthy with the World Cup less than three months away.
