Americans still in action this weekend

All of the Americans earning a paycheck in England, Germany and Scotland are done with their club commitments and look ahead to next week's U.S. training camp in Princeton, N.J. There are several players, however, with work left to be done.

One game to keep an eye on is in Italy, where Oguchi Onyewu will try to break into AC Milan's 18-man roster for this first time since he was injured last October. Onyewu made the 23-man provisional roster last week against Genoa, but didn't feature in the final 18.

In Greece, it appears unlikely that Eddie Johnson will continue his scoring tear for Aris. Today, he was diagnosed with a sprained hamstring and is likely out for this weekend's playoff game. A spokseman for the U.S. team said he'll still report to the first day of practice Monday.

Here's a quick look who's playing where this weekend:

Carlos Bocanegra (Rennes, France) at Boulogne, Saturday, 3 p.m.
Oguchi Onyewu (AC Milan, Italy) vs. Juventus, Saturday, 2:45 p.m.
Benny Feilhaber (AGF Aarhus, Denmark) vs. Odense BK, Sunday, 9 a.m.
Jose Torres (Pachuca, Mexico) at Toluca, Saturday, 9 p.m.
Eddie Johnson (Aris, Greece) at Olympiakos, Sunday, noon
Clarence Goodson (IK Start, Norway) vs. Kongsvinger, Sunday, 6 p.m.

Chad Marshall & Robbie Rogers (Columbus) vs. Chivas USA, Saturday, 7:30 p.m.
Heath Pearce (Dallas) - at Philadelphia Union, Saturday, 4 p.m.
Landon Donovan & Edson Buddle (Los Angeles) vs. Toronto FC, Saturday, 10:30 p.m.
Jonathan Bornstein & Sacha Kljestan (Chivas USA) at Columbus, Saturday, 7:30 p.m.
