Americans Abroad: Sacha Kljestan knuckles home a free kick in Anderlecht win

Sacha Kljestan played 90 minutes for Anderlecht as it beat Racing Genk 4-2 at home to remain seven points clear at the top of the Belgian Jupiler League table. Christian Benteke opened the scoring for Genk in the eighth minute, before Matias Suarez equalized one minute later. In the 37th minute, Sacha Kljestan stepped up to knuckle home a free kick from 30 meters out after a teammate ran over the ball to dummy. Dieumerci Mbokani doubled the Anderlecht lead in the 61st minute, but substitute Elyaniv Barda put the visitors right back into contention just three minutes later, making it 3-2. A nervy 15 minutes followed before Mbokani completed his brace in the 80th minute, assuring the victory for Anderlecht.
