A few links for Tuesday night
   January 22, 2013 (9:55 PM) by Matt Benson

The USMNT defeated Tijuana 3-0 in a closed-door scrimmage today.  The goals came from Jeff Parke and Will Bruin (twice).  I hope US Soccer puts up some video of the scrimmage online.  But they do have the latest Studio 90 with interviews with Omar Gonzalez and Chris Wondolowski.

Steven Beitashour and Edson Buddle both picked up injuries and will be out for the rest of the camp.

There have been some rumblings of a US-Germany friendly for later this year and it looks like it will be in May in D.C.

Howie posted about Paolo DelPiccolo signing with Eintracht Frankfurt earlier today and Brian Sciaretta nabbed the first interview with DelPiccolo about the move.

Sciaretta also talked to Ryan Miller about leaving Sweden and returning to the US.

Parker Walsh did well enough on his trial that he re-signed with Karlsruher SC through June.

And Charlie Campbell did well on his trial and signed with Ljungskile SK in Sweden.  He joins fellow American Patrick Hopkins.

Philadelphia Union academy player Chris Gomez is headed to Spain for some trials with Malaga and Sevilla.

And finally, Chicago Fire midfielder Corben Bone will be training with Atletico Madrid for a week and a half before joining up with the Fire for the second phase of preseason.

A few links before the weekend’s games
   January 18, 2013 (11:22 PM) by Matt Benson

Nothing new to report on the Brek Shea front.

Clarence Goodson traveled to Turkey this weekend to check out Orduspor.  We could have two Americans in Turkey in less than a week.  Turkey OT readers (all zero of them) haven’t been this excited since Jozy Altidore and Freddy Adu were both playing there in 2010-11.

John Kretlow talked to Brian Span as he gets ready for the 2013 Allsvenskan season in Sweden.

And there are some reports that Ryan Miller could be leaving Sweden for a return to the US with the Portland Timbers.

According to this tweet, US U-19 goalkeeper Ethan Horvath has joined Molde FK in some capacity (signed?  trial?  training?).

Cornell product Jimmy Lannon has signed with FC Lustenau 07 of the Austrian Soccer First League.

Jermaine Jones tells Doug McIntyre of ESPN Insider that his injury is not that bad and he will hopefully return to training next week if there is no pain in his knee.

It looks like dual citizen (US and UK) William Cline is currently with Bristol City’s youth academy.

Charlie Campbell is one of six players currently on trial with Swedish side Ljungskile SK.

Parker Walsh is still on trial with Karlsruher SC, but he scored in a recent friendly.

Tuesday night linkage
   January 8, 2013 (10:11 PM) by Matt Benson

A bunch of links for Tuesday evening.

In case you don’t follow us on Twitter or Facebook, but we have a new addition to the site.  We are going to try and track every goal scored this calendar year.  You can find our goal tracker by clicking the goals link above in the navigation bar.

I posted on Monday about Graham Zusi and Juan Agudelo training at West Ham this week, but it looks like at least Zusi’s trip is an actual trial.

Sticking with the MLS-to-Europe training stints, DC United goalkeepers Joe Willis and Andrew Dykstra are both headed to England to train with different clubs (Sunderland for Willis and Hartlepool United for Dykstra).

Matt over at The Shin Guardian did a detailed depth chart of the USMNT as we enter 2013.  And Brian Sciaretta gives us his breakdown of the January camp.

Not too of a shock, but Grant Wahl is hearing that ESPN won/bought the rights to the US-Mexico qualifier at Azteca.  So ESPN should have that game plus all the home qualifiers, while beIN Sport should have all the rest of the road qualifiers if I am remembering this correctly.

A week after playing in an indoor reserve match, Stuart Holden took the field outside in Bolton’s reserves’ 3-0 win over Oldham Athletic’s reserves.  Holden got the start and played 65 minutes, which got some good reviews of his performance.

While he is coming back from injury, Will Packwood is scheduled to have a second surgery on his broken leg.

US U-18 midfielder Zach Pfeffer scored a goal in his first friendly since going out on loan at Hoffenheim.

Marc Pelosi got the start and went the full 90 minutes in Liverpool’s 4-1 win over Inter Milan in the NextGen Series (U-19 tournament).  With the win, Liverpool advance to the next round.

Parker Walsh could be headed back to Karlsruher SC.

Not a surprise, but Stoke City are open to loaning out Maurice Edu.  Edu has only appeared in one game with the Potters since making the move from Rangers to Stoke City.

Clarence Goodson’s Brøndby are having some money issues and the players might have to take a pay cut or the club might go bankrupt.

Alejandro Bedoya apparently has some suitors in Spain, German, Denmark and Sweden.  Bedoya is expected to stay with the USMNT until a deal is finalized.

Conor O’Brien also has a few different teams looking at him according to Greg Seltzer.

American Jack Stefanowski has been named the head coach of Nepal’s national team.

Alecko Eskandarian tells us a cool story about Clint Dempsey from 2005’s Camp Cupcake.

And finally, Sciaretta has another interview with Sacha Kljestan.

News and links from around the interwebs

Where shall we begin?

Stuart Holden has begun light training with Bolton this week.

EPL Talk has the Premier League TV schedule for the first couple months of the season for those of us living in the US.

Bryan Gerzicich has officially re-signed with Israeli Premier League champions Hapoel Ironi Kiryat Shmona.

Sebastian Lletget was recently interviewed by West Ham’s website about training with the first team this preseason.

Both Alfredo Morales and Anthony Brooks have been receiving playing time with Hertha Berlin’s first team this preseason.  Morales played in eight league games with the first team last season, but Brooks was actually demoted from the U-23 team to the U-19 team at the end of last season.  Both should hopefully get a chance at first team playing time with Hertha Berlin in the 2. Bundesliga this year.

Timothy Chandler had an assist in Nurnberg’s latest preseason friendly against Eintracht Bamberg.

Parker Walsh is training with German 2. Bundesliga club Energie Cottbus this week.

A good day for a couple Americans on Finnish side Kemi Kings yesterday.  Christian Eissele recorded a hat trick, while Daniel Stevens scored a brace in Kemi Kings’ 5-0 victory over HauPa.

Former US U-17/U-20 winger Brendan King has signed with League of Ireland Premier Division club Bray Wanderers.  King was taken in the second round of the 2012 MLS SuperDraft by Portland.

Central defender Mike Jones has signed with Danish First Division side FC Hjørring.  Jones was drafted in the 2011 Supplemental Draft by Sporting Kansas City before landing on New York and appearing in two games last season.

And finally, this video is awesome.

I should be sleeping, but here are some links
   June 6, 2012 (1:46 AM) by Matt Benson

We have been mainly talking the USMNT around here lately, but here are some more club-oriented links (with some USMNT/U-20s stuff at the end).

Chievo Verona’s sporting director Luigi Sartori has told the media that they fully expect Michael Bradley to be on another team next season.  He claims that the club is hearing from top teams in Italy (Inter? Roma? Palermo?) as well as teams from Germany and England.

DaMarcus Beasley is staying at Puebla despite some interest from some other teams.

American midfielder Russell Canouse has signed a professional deal with TSG Hoffenheim this week.  The soon-to-be 17-year-old was Hoffenheim’s youth academy player of the year this past season and will join their U-19 team next season.

Staying in Germany, Parker Walsh, who played with Karlsruher SC II in the Regionallia this year, is a soon-to-be free agent and Greg Seltzer tells us that he has some suitors.

As for some U-20s news.

Luis Gil picked up an injury in camp last week, so Omar Salgado has been called in.  Before the team headed to South America this week, they played Houston Dynamo’s academy team in a scrimmage over the weekend with the U-20s winning 2-0.  Both goals were scored by Liverpool’s Villyan Bijev.

And for some USMNT stuff.

Here are some field level highlights of the Canada 0-0 draw.  And here are a few photos from the game.

Travis Clark talked to Terrence Boyd recently about his stint so far with the USMNT.

I will honestly admit that I know nothing about Antigua & Barbuda (we are playing two countries, right?), but luckily the guys over at The Shin Guardian know some stuff on the twin-island nation.

   November 8, 2010 (3:24 PM) by Matt Benson

The US U-20 roster has been selected for Torneo de las Americas, which is taking later this month in Kennesaw, Georgia.  The three-team round robin tournament also features Colombia and Mexico.

US U-20 head coach Thomas Rongen has finalized 18 of the 20 spots with eight guys playing on teams outside the US from six different countries.  The final two places on the roster will be decided during the NCAA College Cup tournament.

Here is a look at the roster with those playing outside the US in bold.

GOALKEEPERS (2): Cody Cropper (Ipswich Town; Athens, Ga.), Eduardo Fernandez (Real Salt Lake AZ; Casa Grande, Ariz.)

DEFENDERS (7): Gale Agbossoumonde (G.D. Estoril Praia; Syracuse, N.Y.), Bryan De La Fuente (Chivas USA; Bell, Calif.), Greg Garza (G.D. Estoril Praia; Grapevine, Texas), Korey Veeder (Crystal Palace Baltimore; St. Petersburg, Fla.), Parker Walsh (Karlsruher SC; Roanoke, Va.)

MIDFIELDERS (5): Sebastian Lletget (West Ham United; San Francisco, Calif.), Alex Molano (NK Dinamo Zagreb; Grapevine, Texas), Amobi Okugo (Philadelphia Union; Sacramento, Calif.), Moises Orozco (Tigres; Oxnard, Calif.), Conor Shanosky (D.C. United, Sterling, Va.), Alex Zahavi (Maccabi Haifa F.C.; Lisbon, Portugal), Cesar Zamora (Chivas USA; Sylmar, Calif.)

FORWARDS (4): Juan Agudelo (New York Red Bulls; Barnegat, N.Y.), Tristan Bowen (Los Angeles Galaxy; Van Nuys, Calif.), Fuad Ibrahim (Toronto FC; Richfield, Minn.), Omar Salgado (Unattached; El Paso, Texas)

What do you think of the roster?  Are you on the Juan Agudelo bandwagon yet after his performance in the MLS playoffs?
