Americans abroad weekend roundup

The U.S. Soccer Federation is planning to announce Juergen Klinsmann’s roster for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers on Monday around 10:30 a.m. ET. Players are in transit today or arriving Monday in Denver, but Klinsmann’s policy is to maintain secrecy until most, if not all, personnel has settled into camp. The Americans (0-1-0) will face Costa Rica (0-0-1) on Friday at DSG Park in Commerce City, Colo. (10 p.m. ET, ESPN, UniMas) and Mexico next Tuesday at Azteca Stadium (10:30 p.m., ESPN, Univision).

Weekend goal scorers: Jozy Altidore notched his 18th goal in 26 Eredivisie matches (25th overall). He is fourth in the league scoring race. … German-American Andrew Wooten scored his fifth in 20 German second-tier appearances. Altidore video:

Disclaimer: There are many other Americans playing overseas. However, to maintain a manageable list, I do not include players in smaller leagues, low tiers or who play primarily for reserve or youth squads. Those who represent other countries in international competition (i.e. Italy’s Giuseppe Rossi and Honduras’ Roger Espinoza) are also omitted; in other words, a player must be eligible for U.S. duty.
