American Exports: Adu's Rizespor thrashed 4-0

AMSTERDAM — Freddy Adu and Rizespor are in need of a second-leg miracle after they suffered a bruising 4-0 defeat at derby rivals Orduspor in the opener of their Turkish promotion playoff semifinal on Monday night.

The US international, perhaps his side's brightest performer in the match, departed on 68 minutes.

Meanwhile, over in Sweden's Allsvenskan, Djurgårdens defender Gale Agbossoumonde saw yellow during his full shift in a 3-0 loss at Mjällby.
