A bunch of randomness for Tuesday.

I went to Tijuana this past weekend to check out Tijuana-Pumas and wrote some words about the trip.

Want to know how your favorite Americans did abroad this past weekend?  Roderick has you covered.

Want some highlights of some goals?  Bobby Wood scored twice and so did Andrew Wooten.  Brian Span scored in Finland while Junior Flores scored for Borussia Dortmund’s U-19 team.  It wasn’t a goal, but Timothy Chandler had a “deflected assist”.  And when in doubt, check out our goal tracker.

Those braces earned Bobby Wood and Andrew Wooten a spot on Kicker’s 2. Bundesliga Team of the Week.  And Wood was named Kicker’s 2. Bundesliga Player of the Week.

Not a shocker, but the rumored 2015 USMNT away jersey was officially announced by Nike and US Soccer yesterday.  And I officially added it to our USMNT jersey history page.

Julian Green’s situation with Hamburg is odd.  Bild reported last week that Green could possibly get fined for refusing to play with the U-23 team.  And now it looks like Green is supposed to meet with the team today to discuss whether he will or will not play with the U-23 team.

Are you one of the three people not tired hearing about the USMNT and fitness?  Matt Besler talked to the Kansas City Star about Klinsmann’s quotes and now Klinsi is tweeting with fitness talk.  Klinsmann also thinks the new jerseys are cool.

As expected, the US-Mexico friendly for April is now sold out.

One player we could be seeing in the upcoming USMNT friendlies?  Club America defender Ventura Alvarado.

The FA Cup quarterfinal draw was held yesterday and a couple Americans are still left in the competition.  Brad Guzan and Aston Villa will be facing West Brom, while Danny Williams and Reading will take on Bradford City.

After training with the Fighting Bob Bradleys, A.J. Soares looks to be on trial with Viking.

And finally, Christian Pulisic got to train with Borussia Dortmund’s senior team last week and manager Jurgen Klopp thought he showed signs of good quality.

A bunch of random stuff for you on this Tuesday.

The US U-20 team picked up a 2-0 win over Jamaica on Sunday (highlights).  They just need a win or a tie on Wednesday against Trinidad & Tobago to advance to the playoff round.  It was announced during the broadcast that Kellyn Acosta will miss the rest of the tournament due to a knee injury, while Junior Flores came off the bench and played after missing a game with an ankle injury.

Also over the weekend, Herculez Gomez scored his first goal for Puebla since returning to La Franja (highlights).

We posted the rumored 2015 USMNT away jersey back in December and now it looks like it could have some legs as Alex Morgan was recently seen in the shirt.

The USMNT’s friendly against Chile is listed on US Soccer’s website as being broadcasted on Fox Sports 2, but it looks like it might have switched to Fox Sports 1 along with a pre-game show.

Jon Arnold is in sunny SoCal for the USMNT camp and spoke to Tesho Akindele about his international options and to Bobby Wood about seeking an exit from 1860 Munich during this transfer window.

I don’t think I posted this last week but Brad Evans left the camp due to a knee injury.

The Guardian’s Tom Gottlieb takes a look at the USMNT defense and why it might be the weak link at the moment.

The Toronto Sun’s Kurtis Larson writes how Michael Bradley is a big reason why Jozy Altidore is now with Toronto FC.

As MLSE CEO Tim Leiweke explained to the Toronto Sun on Friday, sacrifice for the crest is certainly one of those principles.

The club’s head honcho told me Bradley restructured part of his deal with the Reds to help bring Altidore back to MLS. The prospects of playing alongside Altidore brought back memories that made it an easy decision.

“I think about what it has been like to play on so many big days with Jozy,” Bradley said. “We’d be standing in the tunnel and you’ll look over at him and he’ll give you a little wink.

“You know he’s ready and you know you’re ready.”

For those of you that watched ESPN’s Inside: U.S. Soccer’s March to Brazil, you might remember Michael Bradley was recruiting Jozy back then.

Now that numerous teams in MLS are interested in Sacha Kljestan, Anderlecht general manager Herman Van Holsbeeck wants Kljestan to stay for at least a couple months since Anderlecht has lost a couple players due to injury and the African Cup of Nations.  Greg Seltzer is also hearing that some European teams are interested in him along with various MLS clubs.

We did have some other goals this past weekend that came in some friendlies.  Fabian Johnson scored a goal in Borussia Mönchengladbach’s 1-0 win over Rot-Weiss Essen (photo).  And Andrew Wooten scored a goal in Sandhausen’s 4-2 win over Jahn Regensburg.

Alejandro Bedoya did a video interview with BeIN Sports recently.

Jose Torres had back surgery and is going to be out for 10-12 weeks according to Tigres.

Dillon Powers just picked up his Italian passport last week.  And according to Greg Seltzer, there are some teams in Italy interested in the Colorado Rapids midfielder (Plano Senior High School represent!).

And as Howie posted yesterday, Northwestern goalkeeper Tyler Miller is skipping MLS for the German fourth division.

Friday funday linkaganza

Links and such before the weekend.

So Jozy Altidore is going to officially be with Toronto FC today (before heading to California to join the USMNT).  Here is some video of him arriving at Toronto’s Pearson Airport.  Toronto FC have already changed their Facebook page up a bit.  The official press conference to introduce him will be today at 11 AM Eastern.

Here is a little video of the USMNT training in California.  The team also made a trip to the Staples Center last night to watch the Lakers attempt to play basketball.

Speaking of the NBA, DeAndre Yedlin and Tim Howard both were in London to check out the Bucks-Knicks game at the O2 Arena.  Timmy has going full blown drifter with his look.

Back to the USMNT, FC Dallas defender Matt Hedges has been added to the roster for this month.

Jurgen Klinsmann also recently said that Robbie Rogers would have likely been called into camp if he didn’t split it up between vets and U-23 players.

If you are planning on going to the Gold Cup final, it looks like you can start looking into plans to head to Philadelphia.

Diego Fagundez played with Uruguay’s U-20 team last night at South American U-20 Championship, so he is officially cap tied and can no longer play for the US since he is not a US citizen yet.

According to the Digital Communications Manager at Southampton, Cody Cropper just has a black eye and is fine after his collision on Monday that sent him to the hospital.

The LA Galaxy traded midfielder Marcelo Sarvas to Colorado for the third spot in the allocation order and allocation money, making some people think they are still trying to sign Sacha Kljestan.

US U-18 midfielder Kyle Scott scored a nice goal for Chelsea’s U-21 team earlier this week.

According to Ives Galarcep, Sebastian Lletget is in Spain training with a second division team as he could be headed out (on loan?) this month.

Here is a Google-translated story on Andrew Wooten and his coach Alois Schwartz.

Nermin Crnkic scored a goal earlier this week for Jablonec in a friendly against Atletico Victoria.

Former USMNTer Thomas Dooley has agreed to a two-year extension as manager of the Philippine national team.

And finally, a little poll before the weekend.  How many goals do you think Jozy Altidore will score in MLS regular season play in 2015?

A bit of this and that for Tuesday
   November 11, 2014 (12:50 AM) by Matt Benson
 

The big news from yesterday was the release of the USMNT roster for the upcoming friendlies against Colombia and Ireland.

I am guessing players like Aron Johannsson, Terrence Boyd and Danny Williams were left off due to just returning back from injury, while we did get confirmation last night that Clint Dempsey was left off to give him some rest during the MLS playoffs.  Some other players still in the playoffs, like Jermaine Jones and Lee Nguyen, will be headed back to the US after the Colombia friendly.

Tesho Akindele was not on the roster despite various reports saying he had a good chance of making it last week, but it looks like he made the initial provisional roster.  I am wondering if he might get called in for the Ireland friendly if some of those MLS players return to their clubs, especially with FC Dallas no longer in the MLS playoffs.

I am guessing some fans are questioning bringing in some older players like DaMarcus Beasley, Chris Wondolowski and Kyle Beckerman, but it looks like Jurgen Klinsmann wants the older players to mentor the younger players.  Here is also a video of Klinsi talking about the roster and the upcoming friendlies.

Here is a photo gallery of the USMNT training in London.

While we have the US roster, here are the rosters for Colombia and Ireland.

Nathen McVittie created some cool posters for both friendlies that you can buy.

Miguel Ibarra found himself back on the US roster and he scored a pretty sweet goal this past weekend in the NASL semifinals.

Lee Nguyen will be looking to see the field against Colombia and there is a good chance that Brad Guzan will be the goalkeeper.  The last time he played for the USMNT?  In a 2007 Copa America match against Colombia with Brad Guzan as the goalkeeper.

The US U-20 team is currently Spain for a mini-tournament against Russia’s U-21s, Ireland’s U-20s, and Canada’s U-20s.  Here is that roster.  And here are some photos from their training session yesterday.  It looks like Tab Ramos is working with Brad Friedel to try and get Cameron Carter-Vickers’ release from Tottenham for the U-20 World Cup.

One player currently at that U-20 camp in Spain, Lynden Gooch, just signed an extension with Sunderland.

A couple dual nationals that the US can probably cross off their list:  Columbus Crew’s Justin Meram and Stjarnan’s Pablo Punyed.

Still haven’t learned anything new, but one report out of the UK claims DeAndre Yedlin is close to getting his Latvian passport, which means he could join Tottenham in January.

We had some goals this past weekend.  The Joker, Cesar Romero, notched a hat trick in Armenia (highlights).  Andrew Wooten assisted on the game-tying goal and scored the winner in Sandhausen’s victory over Nurnberg (highlights).  That performance by Wooten earned him OT’s Player of the Week honors by Howie and myself.  Read this and you will see that Wooten’s goals have come up big for Sandhausen this season.  Bobby Warshaw scored a goal (highlights) as Bærum advanced in the Norwegian promotion playoffs and will next play Rhett Bernstein and Mjøndalen.  And finally, Devann Yao got another start and scored another goal in German Regionalliga action (highlights).

Heading back to Norway for a second.  This past weekend was the last game of the season.  The Fighting Bob Bradleys had a 2-0 win over Sogndal and finished ninth in the 16-team Tippeligaen.  Not bad for a newly promoted team.

There is a chance that Mix Diskerud played his last game for Rosenborg, a 4-1 win over Strømsgodset, giving them a second place finish and a spot in next year’s Europa League in the event he stays at the club.  It looks like Mix is also participating in Movember.

And down in the Adeccoligaen, it was good to see Zarek Valentin return to the field after missing most of the season with an ankle injury.

Tim Howard was trying to be sneaky sneaky in Everton’s 1-1 draw to Sunderland.

Jozy Altidore did not get off the bench in that game, but he recently participated with SB Nation’s The Chivalry Playbook.

Brian Sciaretta talked to Aron Johannsson last week about returning to the field after two surgeries.

Michael Orozco left Puebla’s game this past weekend with what looked to be a calf injury.

And finally, Benji Joya is leaving the Chicago Fire (they declined the buy option in their loan deal with Santos Laguna) and he apparently has options in Argentina as well as some other teams within MLS.

Matt’s Pick – Andrew Wooten (Sandhausen – German 2. Bundesliga)

The Wooten Clan keeps coming up with big goals for Sandhausen this year.  I don’t know what more he needs to do to get on Klinsi’s radar.
