Freddy Adu (Benfica)

The News: Benfica's 2-1 victory over Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday assured the Portuguese club of a place in the UEFA Cup and knocked the Ukrainian club out of Europe.

Of Note: Freddy Adu was an unused substitute for Benfica, who progressed to the knockout stage of the UEFA Cup courtesy of two first half goals from striker Oscar Cardozo.

Up Next: Benfica parachute into the Round of 32 for the UEFA Cup, but they'll have to wait until mid-February 2008 before they take the field in that competition. Currently, the group stage is still going on, and Benfica won't know its opponent until all the matches are completed.
