Less than half of the 30 American players invited to training camp this week belong to club teams still in action this weekend. Here's a quick summary of who played and how they did:

ABROAD:

Oguchi Onyewu (AC Milan, Italy) did not dress in his team's 3-0 win over Juventus.
Benny Feilhaber (AGF Aarhus, Denmark) played 33 minutes in his tam's 3-0 loss to Odense BK. The loss meant Aarhaus (11th place of 12) would be relegated from the Danish Super League.
Jose Torres (Pachuca, Mexico) started and played 90 minutes in his team's 1-0 playoff loss to Toluca. Pachuca was eliminated from the Mexican Clausera tournament, 3-2, on aggregate.
