Tuesday’s linkapalooza
   September 2, 2014 (12:01 AM) by Matt Benson     Email This Post Email This Post
 

Lots of action this past weekend.

Steven Goff has you covered with a weekend roundup of the bigger names in Europe.  Good to see Rubio Rubin and Emerson Hyndman both made appearances again in their respective team’s starting lineups.  Hyndmann is 18 years old and completing 91 percent of his passes this season, fourth highest in the Championship among players with 100+ attempted passes.

As for some goals, Matt Taylor bagged another two goals in Saarbrücken’s 2-1 win over Nöttingen (highlights).  Taylor has put together a nice little career in the various lower leagues in Germany, scoring 55 goals in 162 league appearances since 2008-09.

Bobby Warshaw went the full 90 minutes and scored the opening goal of the game in Bærum’s 2-1 loss to Hønefoss (highlights).  Over in Sweden, Andrew Stadler scored his 11th goal of the season in Landskrona’s 1-1 draw to Sirius (highlights).  Down in the fourth tier in Sweden, Eddy Prugh and Andy Lorei both scored in Bodens BK’s 3-2 loss to Anundsjö (highlights).  And we don’t have highlights of these goals, but Matt Eliason, Drew Jeskey, Anthony Avalos and Christian Eissele also scored this weekend and our goal tracker has some more details.  Will Packwood also scored for Birmingham City’s U-21 team.

While we had some goals this weekend, the assists might have been even better this weekend.  Bobby Wood used his head to assist on 1860 Munich’s goal in their 1-1 draw to Darmstadt 98 (highlights).  Here is also a photo of Wood from that game.  And Alfredo Morales assisted on two goals in Ingolstadt’s 3-0 win over Sandhausen (highlights).  That second one was pretty slick.

The USMNT did some training yesterday at the headquarters of the Czech Football Association.   In case you missed the young roster, John D. Halloran broke things down on Friday.  Terrence Boyd is also there in attendance despite his knee injury and Geoff Cameron has been officially ruled out of Wednesday’s game due to his injury.  I forgot to post this last week, but here is Jurgen Klinsmann’s usual post-roster release quote sheet.  Also from last Friday, US Soccer announced an October 14 friendly against Honduras.

The US U-20 team is headed to Argentina this week to play Racing Club Reserves, Defensa y Justicia Reserves and Argentina’s U-20 team.  Here is the updated roster, which features John Requejo Jr., Fernando Arce, Russell Canouse, Junior Flores and Paul Arriola among others.  Another interesting name on the list is Chivas de Guadalajara’s Luis Martir since Chivas normally has a Mexican international only policy.

We had a pretty quiet Deadline Day on the American front (aside from a dildo going into a reporter’s ear, seriously), but we had a couple moves over the last couple of days.

As we posted over the weekend, Julian Green is headed to Hamburg on a season-long loan.  And for all those soccer jersey hipsters out there, Hamburg has a decent home shirt this year and Green looks to be wearing #37.

As for some other moves, Duane Holmes is now with League Two side Bury on a loan until January.  Seb Hines is now with Coventry City until January on a short-term loan.  Gboly Ariyibi signed with English League One side Chesterfield.  And US U-20 midfielder Kris Scott has made the move from Swansea City’s youth teams to Leicester City’s youth teams.

The bigger news on the American front were the moves that did not happen.  Stoke City decided to keep Geoff Cameron despite bids from Sunderland and Southampton.  Zulte-Waregem made a bid for Sacha Kljestan, but Anderlecht decided to hold onto him as well.  And I guess there might have been some rumblings of Southampton sniffing around Brek Shea, but nothing happened (and it was likely silly season nonsense).

And before multiple more people ask me, Juan Agudelo is still without a club and myself (and many others) don’t know anything more on his situation.

Brian Sciaretta, writing for multiple outlets, has you covered with some interviews with Brad Guzan and Greg Garza.  Jonny Rico also got some audio from Garza and Joe Corona about their recent call-ups to the USMNT.

And finally, Freddy Adu is still in Serbia, still hasn’t played for his new team and is suing his former Brazilian team Bahia over alleged unpaid wages.

Alfredo Morales went the full 90 minutes while picking up a yellow card and assisting on two goals in Ingolstadt’s 3-0 win over Andrew Wooten (started and played 45 minutes) and Sandhausen.  Here are 10 minutes worth of highlights with Morales’ really nice assists coming at the 0:20 and 8:12 marks.

Julian Green looks set to move to Hamburg on loan
   August 30, 2014 (3:31 PM) by Howie Michaels     Email This Post Email This Post
 

It looks like we’ll have to wait at least a season to have an American winger playing for Bayern Munich, as 19 year-old Julian Green is due to spend the season on loan with Hamburger SV (if reports and Julian’s father Jerry are to be believed).

The Dinosaur avoided relegation last year on the strength of an away goal in the relegation playoff, so they’re a club in a bit of flux. Hopefully for Green’s sake their manager doesn’t favor veterans over a youngster from Bayern if things get rough again.

US to host Honduras in October friendly
   August 30, 2014 (7:05 AM) by Matt Benson     Email This Post Email This Post
 

Two weeks after officially announcing the rumored October friendly against Ecuador, US Soccer announced another friendly during the same international break.  The US will host fellow CONCACAF foes Honduras on October 14 at FAU Stadium in Boca Raton, Florida.  The game will be at 8 PM Eastern on ESPN.

The US is 14-4-3 all-time against Honduras, including a 11-2-2 mark on American soil.

Honduras is currently ranked #43 by FIFA and #60 by Elo.

And for those few people wondering, Landon Donovan will not be playing in this game.  He will only play in the October 10 game against Ecuador, his last game with the USMNT.
