We have reached the international week and the US has its last two friendlies before the CONCACAF Cup (more on that later).  Here is the roster Jurgen Klinsmann has called in for the friendlies, which is heavy on center backs.

You might have noticed that Timothy Chandler and DaMarcus Beasley were both absent from that roster and that is because they are both hurt and Chandler is going to be out for a while.

One player seeking his first cap is the Wooten Clan, Andrew Wooten.  Brian Sciaretta has some more on him.

While Clint Dempsey is not joining the team until the second game, Seattle Sounders manager Sigi Schmid thinks it is not a given that Dempsey will play with the US due to his hamstring injury.

Brian Straus has a piece up on on the current roster.

Some of the players went sightseeing yesterday.

Roughly 24,500 tickets have been sold for Friday’s friendly against Peru.

While CONCACAF has cut ties with Traffic Sports, it has partnered with SUM (Soccer United Marketing) to serve as commercial representative for the CONCACAF Cup, which is apparently the new name for the Confederations Cup playoff game.

The US is expected to have a friendly against Costa Rica after the CONCACAF Cup, although a venue hasn’t been selected yet.

Jordan Morris is getting back into form just in time for the CONCACAF Cup.

Darlington Nagbe is expected to become a US citizen in September (he is taking his naturalization test on September 10).

The US U-23 team is in England this week and you can check out that roster here.  US Soccer’s Twitter account has posted a couple photos from the camp (here and here).

The US U-20 team is also beginning a new cycle this month with a tournament in Serbia.  This current roster features two players who play abroad in Hannover 96’s Abuchi Obinwa and Chelsea’s Kyle Scott.

The end of the transfer window for most of Europe is upon us and a couple players have new teams while a couple others are still with their current teams when people thought they would be leaving.

DeAndre Yedlin is still with Tottenham at the moment despite loan interest from various teams across Europe, although signs point towards him ending up somewhere on loan.  My guess at this point would be a loan deal with some team in the English League Championship.

Fulham have decided to keep Emerson Hyndman despite several offers for the US U-23 midfielder.  While he has not featured for the Cottagers this season, he could also go out on loan to another English team.

Remember when the Colorado Rapids oddly sold Shane O’Neill to a team in Cyprus earlier this summer?  Well he has been oddly sold again this month to Belgian Jupiler Pro League side Royal Mouscron-Péruwelz after not appearing in any games for Apollon Limassol.

Bobby Warshaw has left Bærum in Norway for fellow OBOS-ligaen side Hønefoss.  He has already played in two games for Hønefoss over the last two weekends.

Conor O’Brien has a new home and it is with AC Horsens in the Danish 1st Division (second tier).

After six seasons with Helmond Sport, Charles Kazlauskas is now with De Treffers in the Dutch Topklasse (third tier).

The New York Times’ Sam Borden wrote some words on Ben Lederman’s situation at Barcelona.

We had some goals this past weekend.  Aron Johannsson opened up his account at Werder Bremen.  This is actually from last week, but Austin Berry scored his first goal in South Korea.  Christian Eissele now has four goals in four games since returning to Finland after scoring this past weekend.  Our updated goal tracker also has some info on other goals scored this past weekend, including three Americans all scoring for the same team in Malta.

We also had some assists this past weekend from some hype trains.  Gedion Zelalem looks like he is going to do well in Scotland and assisted on another goal.  Here is also a press conference from last week featuring him.  At the U19 level, Christian Pulisic assisted on a goal for Borussia Dortmund.

And no highlights of this one, but Maki Tall had a goal and an assist for FC Sion’s U21 team in a scrimmage.

And finally, Shaquell Moore made his first start for Huracán Valencia this past weekend, going 78 minutes and picking up a yellow card in a 1-1 draw to Valencia II.

Rapid fire links!

Our goal tracker has been updated with all the goals from this weekend.

Jake Keegan also scored a goal on Monday.

Gedion Zelalem scored a nice little goal for Arsenal’s U21 team last Friday.  Zelalem also talked to Arsenal’s website about the game.

Howie posted some German news yesterday.  Fabian Johnson is going to be out for a while with an injury, Andrew Wooten could be called in for the USMNT’s September friendlies and Joe Gyau gives us an injury update.

Genk are interested in acquiring LA Galaxy forward Gyasi Zardes.

Tim Howard recorded his 127th career Premier League shutout this past weekend, third most among current Premier League goalkeepers.

It looks like William Yarbrough has lost the starting goalkeeper job at Leon.

Brandon Vazquez scored two goals with Tijuana’s U17 team last week.  He also spoke to Tijuana’s website/social media team about the goals.

Vazquez is part of the US U-17 team currently in Pardubice, Czech Republic for a tournament.  They begin play later today.

Lynden Gooch scored a goal yesterday with Sunderland’s U21 team.’s Thomas Floyd also belongs to the #FreeBenny cause.

And what seems like the longest “wrapping up” of a transfer ever, all signs point to Tim Ream finally joining up with Fulham.  Hopefully I can post something official later today.

Assorted Monday news out of the Bundesligas
   August 17, 2015 (3:28 PM) by Howie Michaels

Three news items of varying importance popped up today, all regarding Americans in Germany.

– In Mönchengladbach, Fabian Johnson suffered a hamstring tear in their season-opening loss to Dortmund. He is expected to miss “several weeks”, which leaves him questionable for the start of Gladbach’s Champions League campaign next month. It’d also leave him out for upcoming US friendlies, although I doubt it affects his status for World Cup qualifying in November

– German-American striker Andrew Wooten has been bringing the noise and ruckus early this year, scoring five times in three matches to start the season. German media is reporting that Wooten will be called up to said upcoming US friendlies, which would be his debut with any US national team (he made some U-23 camps but has never played in actual game)

– Finally, DMVSoccer has an interview up with injured Borussia Dortmund (II) winger Joe Gyau. Gyau had just debuted for Dortmund’s senior team when he tore his lateral meniscus playing for the US. While reports have suggested setbacks could leave Gyau out for all of this season as well (American soccer knees are cursed), Gyau provides a more optimistic assessment:

Yes, it is true that I had some cartilage damage, so the surgeon had to do a transplant procedure. They extracted some of my existing cartilage, grew it in the lab, and then 3 weeks later put it back in the damaged spot. I’ve been doing work each and every day, which is tough sometimes, but it’s what has to be done for me to come back stronger. The facilities, physios, and doctors at Dortmund have been with me every step of the way. As for me being out for the whole season, that’s not true. I’m definitely going to be back much sooner than that.

Want some links?  Well, here you go.

According to Steven Goff, the USMNT will be taking on Peru in a friendly at RFK Stadium in Washinton D.C. in September.  The US hasn’t faced Peru since a 1-0 win at the 2000 Gold Cup.

Want to impress your friends with knowledge of the US U-23 goalkeeper pool?  Thankfully we have Will to set us straight.

Brian Span went the full 90 minutes and scored his second league goal of the season in Mariehamn’s 1-1 draw to HIFK on Sunday.  Here are the highlights.  A couple other guys scored if you follow along with our goal tracker.

We also had some goals in friendlies over the last couple days.

Kenny Saief scored for Gent in a 2-2 draw to SK Deinze.  Nermin Crnkic scored a goal for Jablonec in a 2-1 win in something called the Minister Cup.  And Andrew Wooten scored a goal for Sandhausen in a 1-0 win over Würzburger Kickers.

Shaq Moore’s Huracán Valencia CF did not win promotion to Spain’s second division (lost 3-1 on aggregate), but you can learn more about his club here.

Desevio Payne looked pretty good for the US U-20 team earlier this month and he signed a professional deal with Groningen last Friday.

US youth player Brooks Lennon was able to get an Irish passport which is allowing him to sign with Liverpool.

The Seattle Times’ Matt Pentz talked to Jordan Morris about his possible future.

Aron Johannsson might be interested in playing in MLS at some point in the near future.

Steve Cherundolo has been named manager of Hannover’s U-17 team.

Joe Funicello’s career has taken a weird twist and he has been named to the coaching staff at BI/Bolungarvik in Iceland.

To go along with his Serbian/Russian interest, Cesar Romero is also getting looked at by some Mexican clubs according to Greg Seltzer.

And finally, today’s sketchy looking website silly season rumor of the day (so it must be true) has Swansea looking at Matt Miazga.
