American Exports: Blue Monday for Yanks in Scandinavia

AMSTERDAM – Three Americans suited up for some Monday night football across the pond, with Conor O'Brien and early Danish leaders SønderjyskE slipping to second with a 2-0 home loss to AC Horsens.

The 85-minute midfield man forced a tricky save from distance near halftime, but away goals conceded in both the opening and waning moments dealt his side its first defeat of the young season.

A ferry ride away in Norway, Sean Cunningham suffered along with the rest of cellar dwellers Stabæk in a 4-0 home defeat to Brann. The Michigan native's biggest flub was the turnover that facilitated the third away goal.

Meanwhile, in Sweden's Allsvenskan, Brian Span went unused as Djurgården climbed to eighth with a 1-0 victory at Sundsvall.
