Finally able to sit down tonight and put up some links from today.
The US U-17 team kicked off the 2011 CONCACAF U-17 Championship with a 3-1 victory over Cuba in their opening group match earlier today. They next play Panama on Friday to finish off their three-team group play.
US Soccer also has a Q&A up on their site with Jonathan Bornstein. You can see that right here.
Steven Goff has all the goods on his blog about the various salaries among those in US Soccer for last year (technically March 31, 2009 through April 1, 2010). Bob Bradley pulled in $818,244 ($600,000 base salary) after some incentives. I am sure there are some people out there that think that is $818,243 too much.
Brent Latham caught up with Thomas Rongen a few days after the CONCACAF U-20 World Cup Qualifying tournament draw to talk about the team. Two major points to take away from it: 1) He thinks this is the deepest team ever. 2) Fabian Hurzeler might not be on the team in Guatemala due to school conflicts.
Neil W. Blackmon takes a look at the tough choice ahead (selecting between the US and Honduras) of Andy Najar over at The Yanks Are Coming.
It appears that Northampton Town striker/defender Seb Harris is doing his second loan stint of the season. The 23-year-old spent some time with English Conference North side Stafford Rangers and now he is with English Conference North club Nuneaton Town. He got the start and went the full 90 minutes this past weekend in Nuneaton Town’s 1-0 loss to Droylsden.
Brian Sciaretta keeps us updated on the play of Adrian Ruelas since returning to Santos after training with Celtic this past fall. Ruelas has scored an amazing six goals through four games with Santos’ U-20 team.
