American Exports: Parkhurst & Co. fall in Champs League

AMSTERDAM – Michael Parkhurst and Danish holders FC Nordsjælland came up short on their Champions League debuts, with the visitors dropping a 2-0 decision to Ukrainian power Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday.

Parkhurst & Co. will get their next chance at a Champions League duck breaker when defending champs Chelsea visit Farum Park on October 2.
