Fire Alumni Abroad

How did Fire alums abroad fare this weekend?

Cuauhtemoc Blanco scored
the lone goal in Veracruz 3-1 loss to Cruz Azul Hidalgo on Sunday. The former
Fire #10 has scored five goals since joining
los Tiburones Rojos in January. With two matches left in the 2010
Bicentenario, Veracruz sit 12th
in the Mexican second division and
will take on 15th placed Atlante UTN this Saturday.

Chris Rolfe
continues to play a substitute role for Alborg BK in Denmark, coming on in the
70
th minute of the club’s 1-1 draw with Silkeborg last Friday.
Trailing 1-0 late, Alborg’s Jeppe Curth found the equalizer in the 88
th
minute, securing a crucial point for sixth-place AaB. Sitting on 37 points,
Rolfe’s club are marred in a tight battle for positioning in the Danish
SuperLiga, with just four points separating third place Silkeborg from seventh
place Brondby.

With eight matches remaining, Rolfe and Alborg will look to
climb the table with three points in this Saturday’s match away to eighth-place
AFG Arhus

Carlos Bocanegra
went 90 minutes in Stade Rennes 2-1 loss to perennial Ligue 1 powerhouse
Olympique Lyon last Saturday. Finding themselves up 1-0 after 15 minutes,
Rennes surrendered two second half goals, losing an all important three points
at home to the French table toppers.

Seventh in Ligue 1 on 49 points, Bocanegra and Rennes travel
to Lorient this Saturday, hoping to distance themselves from the eighth-place
side.

Gonzalo Segares
appeared in Apollon’s (Cyprus) most recent match on March 28, going the full 90
minutes in the club’s 2-0 loss to Anorhosis. The former Fire left back lines up
with another Fire alum, albeit a short term one, in striker
Junior Agogo, who made his lone Fire appearance at the beginning of the
2000 MLS season, before being traded to Colorado.

Segares and Agogo will finish the Cypriot season this
Saturday when Apollon will look to cement a third-place finish at home to
Tserio.
