Yesterday, two Americans found the back of the net abroad....
US midfielder Sacha Kljestan opened up the scoring for Anderlecht, who play in Belgium's top division, with a nicely taken penalty kick. Anderlecht went on to win the game 3-1 to secure their first win of the season. Kljestan got the start and played the full 90 minutes.
Here are the match highlights (Kljestan's goal is at the 2:36 point in the video):
Crafty midfielder Mix Diskerud also came up big for his club, Stabaek. Diskerud's 3rd goal of the season tied up the match at 1-1 in the 61st minute. The momentum of Diskerud's finish lifted Stabaek to a 2-1 victory. The 3 points brings Stabaek to 5th place in Norway's top league.
Side Note- Norway is on the same schedule as the MLS so they are about halfway done with their season
Here are the match highlights (Diskerud's goal comes from a play that starts at the 3:30 mark):
