Americans in the UEFA Champion's League

Quiet round for the Americans as of the now three players on Champions League rosters, only Sacha Kljestan dressed, and he wasn't called upon in Anderlecht's 3-0 loss to Joe Gyau's Borussia Dortmund.

David Yelldell - GK - Bayer Leverkusen - Yelldell again took a back seat to Leno and Kresic as Leverkusen defeated Benfica 3-1. Yelldell hasn't appeared in a competitive match since July of 2011 when he conceded 4 goals to Dynamo Dresden in a 4-3 loss in the German Cup (DFB-Pokal). He last dressed in May for a league match against Bremen.

Sacha Kljestan - MF - Anderlecht - Kljestan dressed, but was passed up in favor of strikers Frank Acheampong (Ghana, Age 20), Gohi Bi Zoro Cyriac (Ivory Coast, Age 24) and Nathan Kabasele (Belgium, Age 20).

Joe Gyau - MF - Borussia Dortmund - The 22 year-old Gyau dressed for four Bundesliga matches in September making his debut as a substitute in the 73rd minute on the 24th against Stuttgart. He has yet to dress for a Champions League match.
