FRIBOURG, FRANCE (AP) - Charlie Davies entered as an 87th-minute substitute Saturday in Sochaux’s 2-0 exhibition victory over Southampton.

“I didn’t get to play too much but in (due) time,” Davies wrote on Twitter.

The 24-year-old American forward, has played in all four of Sochaux’s exhibitions as he attempts to come back from a near-fatal car crash last October. He was left off the United States team for the World Cup.

The accident in Virginia killed another passenger. Davies had a broken and dislocated left elbow, a broken right femur, tibia and fibula, and a broken nose, forehead and eye socket. He also was left with a ruptured bladder and bleeding on the brain.

Sochaux opens the Ligue 1 season Aug. 7 at home against Arles-Avignon.
