March madness links
   March 20, 2015 (6:26 AM) by Matt Benson
 

Work is busy with this little hoopyball tournament going on so these will be quick and to the point.

Roderick has your rundown of the midweek games.

Tim Howard and Everton were knocked out of Europa League and here are some highlights.

Some sites credited Eric Lichaj with an assist earlier this week, but as you can see from these highlights, he just headed the ball out to the guy who ended running the full field and scoring.  So a little tough to call it an assist.

William Yarbrough confirmed his USMNT call-up in a Leon press conference yesterday.

Brian Sciaretta also has some news on call-ups for Gedion Zelalem (no longer listed on Germany’s site for their U-18 team), Desevio Payne and Adam Henley.

And it looks like NYCFC forward Khiry Shelton might be called into the US U-23 camp.

Brian Sciaretta also talked to Jerome Kiesewetter about his US U-23 call-up.

Brian Quarstad has a piece up on Mukwelle Akale over at the Northern Pitch.

Goalkeeper Zac Lubin has left Sweden and IFK Lulea for the Tulsa Roughnecks.

Former New England Revolution defender Jossimar Sanchez has signed with Nyköpings BIS in Sweden.

And finally, someone at Nike who creates the jerseys for the national teams apparently learned how to use gradient on photoshop.  And Norway (new to Nike) is getting the US’ third jersey leftovers from 2011.

Post green beer hangover links
   March 18, 2015 (1:12 AM) by Matt Benson
 

Work has been pretty busy for me over the last week so I haven’t done a links post in a while.  That said, a bunch of goodies for you while you wait that green beer hangover out.

Two US female goalkeepers squared off against each other in UEFA Women’s Champions League last October so Will decided to have a chat with both of them to find out more.

Missed out on the weekend’s games?  Roderick has you covered.

US Soccer is about to have a busy next couple of weeks with the USMNT, U-23 and U-20 teams all having camps and friendlies throughout Europe.  It looks like we should expect to see the various rosters over the weekend.

While we wait for the rosters, a bunch of names are kind of leaking out.  Thanks to Birmingham City’s site, we know that Will Packwood is going to be with the U-23 team.   Brian Sciaretta is also hearing that Jerome Kiesewetter will be with the U-23s, while Andrija Novakovich will be with the U-20s.  And while there has been speculation that Jurgen Klinsmann is going to call in Ventura Alvarado with the MNTers, there is at least one report of Leon goalkeeper William Yarbrough being called in as well.

We are still waiting for Gedion Zelalem’s waiver to go through with FIFA, but he has been called in by Germany’s U-18 team.  He has turned them down in the past and hopefully he does again.

Speaking of rosters, here is Denmark’s roster for the USMNT friendly.

If you hate yourself, here is another (and new) story on Jurgen Klinsmann and fitness.

Will Packwood scored his first professional goal yesterday in Cheltenham Town’s 2-2 draw to Portsmouth (highlights).  He had to be subbed out due to some kind of injury, but he tweeted after the game that he is “feeling groggy” but is OK.

DeAndre Yedlin is back on the field and played with Tottenham’s U-21 team on Monday.  Here is a photo of him in action.

Andrija Novakovich made his debut with Reading’s senior team over the weekend in Reading’s 4-1 loss at Watford.  Here is a photo of Novakovich about to come onto the field.

Reading and Danny Williams (went the full 90) won their FA Cup 6th round replay over Bradford City on Monday.  Reading is headed to the FA Cup semis for the first time since 1927.

Klinsi was impressed with Jozy Altidore’s Toronto FC debut.

I see you, Greg Garza.

A.J. Soares is going to be out 6-8 weeks after picking up a knee injury in training.

According to this report out of Philadelphia, Union midfielder Danny Cruz is headed to Norway to go on a season-long loan with Bodø/Glimt.  If true, he will become teammates with Zarek Valentin.

Greg Seltzer caught up with Helsingborgs IF goalkeeper Matt Pyzdrowski.

Galway United forward Jake Keegan was on Goal’s League of Ireland GoalMouth podcast last week.  He also spoke to Brian Sciaretta.

AZ Alkmaar have brought on Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane as an advisor.  I think I read the word “moneyball” in every tweet yesterday mentioning this news.

Here is a story from last week on Marc Pelosi and his return to the field over the last year.

Andrew Sousa and Ryan Maduro were both in Iceland last season with Fylkir and now both are returning to the US with the Rhode Island Oceaneers.

According to Will Parchman, US U-17 winger McKinzie Gaines is headed to Germany to trial with Wolfsburg.

And finally, FIFA announced the stadiums that will be used at the 2016 Olympics and somehow Arena da Amazônia in Manaus made the cut as one of the seven stadiums.  I still remember drinking two full glasses of water while just walking to my seat in the upper deck.  It was such a furnace.  I did snap this nice photo.

A bunch of randomness for Wednesday.

Herculez Gomez likes scoring goals for Puebla and he scored another one last night in a 2-1 win in Copa MX action (highlights).  I was also able to find some highlights of Devann Yao’s goal from the weekend (highlights).

Also scoring earlier this week was Jake Keegan in Galway United’s win in Irish League Cup action (highlights).  Here is the post-game press conference with Keegan and his manager.  Around the 2:50 mark, his manager talks about Kevin Garcia joining the team soon.  I am guessing he is waiting for a work permit as I believe it took Keegan a while to get a new one for this season.

Staying in Ireland, St Patrick’s Athletic has signed midfielder Morgan Langley.  Langley played in one game for the Philadelphia Union in 2011, but has mainly played his professional soccer with the Harrisburg City Islanders.

In case you missed it from yesterday, we found out that Conor O’Brien is going to be out three weeks with a broken rib.

Jerome Kiesewetter made his Bundesliga debut this past weekend and here is a photo of him in action.

Joe Corona started at left back for Tijuana this past weekend in replace of the injured Greg Garza and played well enough to make ESPN’s Liga MX Team of the Week.

Cameron Carter-Vickers played up with Tottenham’s U-21 team yesterday against a Manchester United U-21 team which featured Radamel Falcao and Victor Valdes.  And it sounds like he did well.

However, Bongani Khumalo and Cameron Carter-Vickers kept Falcao quiet all night and Carter-Vickers came closest to a winner in the second half when his header came back off the crossbar.

If you haven’t already, time to buy a lot CCV stock.

The US U-23 team will have a camp in Europe later this month with friendlies against Bosnia and Denmark.

According to sources of Brian Sciaretta, the CONCACAF Olympic qualifying will hold the semifinals and final at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah.

This is from last week, but Tijuana’s website has a little story up on US U-17 forward Brandon Vazquez.

Emerson Hyndman was last seen breaking his collarbone with the US U-20 team, but it looks like he has returned to training in some capacity at Fulham.

Gboly Ariyibi has signed an extension with English League One side Chesterfield until 2017.

I posted back in February that it looked like Alfred Koroma had joined some team in Austria, but he actually just signed with USL’s Austin Aztex.

FIFA announced its finalists for the FIFA Ballon d’Or and for the FIFA World Coach of the Year.  While no USMNT players made the Ballon d’Or list (how did Alan Gordon not get nominated?!), Jurgen Klinsmann is one of the 10 finalists for the Coach of the Year award.

FIFA also plans to show off its new logo for the 2018 World Cup later today.

It looks like the USMNT might play Switzerland in a friendly in Zurich in March.

Congrats to the US Women’s National Team for winning the CONCACAF Women’s Championship and clinching a spot in next summer’s World Cup.  Since 1990, the US is one of three countries to qualify for every men’s and women’s World Cup (also Germany and Brazil).

Michael Bradley is going to have surgery this week to correct a lingering nerve issue in his foot.  This is an injury that has been bugging him for most of the season.  Jeff Carlisle asked him if it was an issue prior to the World Cup, which he said no, but I guess it got worse as the season wore on.

I tweeted out a photo over the weekend of Terrence Boyd getting Randy Orton’s RKO (WWE wrestling move) preformed on him by a teammate and now we have video of the hilarity.

Jake Keegan went 90 minutes yesterday in Galway FC’s 2-1 win over UCD in the first leg of the Irish Premier Division promotion/relegation playoffs.  Galway FC scored two late goals to steal the road win and now host UCD on Friday for a chance at promotion.

Alejandro Bedoya missed Nantes’ 2-0 win this weekend due to a hamstring strain.

While there were some rumblings that Aron Johannsson might play this weekend for AZ Alkmaar, he did not as they want to give him a few more minutes with the reserve team.

Geoff Cameron returned to Stoke City’s starting lineup this past weekend as a holding midfielder, but the Potters fell to Southampton 1-0.  Here is a photo of Cameron in action.

Greg Garza had to leave Tijuana’s draw to Chivas on Sunday with a head injury.

After scoring 12 goals in 14 games with the U-23 team, Jann George finally saw some first team action with Greuther Furth’s senior team in their 5-2 loss to FSV Frankfurt.

We had some goals this weekend.  Matt Taylor scored twice in Saarbrücken’s 4-1 win over Pirmasens.  Christian King scored twice in Ararat’s 3-2 loss to Ulisses in Armenian Premier League action.  Jerome Kiesewetter scored his second goal of the season on Saturday in Stuttgart II’s 1-0 win over Unterhaching.  And over Tigres’ last two games, we have had goals by Jose Torres and Herculez Gomez.

We also had some assists/sort-of-assists.  Mix Diskerud had this pretty little chip assist in Rosenborg’s 3-1 win over Sandnes Ulf.  And in the sort-of-assist category, Tim Ream and Zak Whitbread each had one for their respective clubs.

Marc Pelosi was back in action with Liverpool’s U-21 team this past weekend.

It looks like the US U-20 team might be headed abroad for three friendlies in November.

Mia Hamm was nominated for Roma’s board of directors on Monday.

I saw a Clint Dempsey rumor (loan deal back to the Premier League) has been circulating the interwebs in the last 48 hours, but it all came from a short “story” from the Daily Mirror with no quotes (except for an out of context quote from Klinsmann).  Come on people, I thought we were better than that.

And finally, no matter what happens with the rest of his career, Stuart Holden is still awesome.

Quick links for Tuesday
   October 7, 2014 (2:07 AM) by Matt Benson
 

I should be in bed now, but I wanted to post these links before tomorrow.

The US announced its roster for Friday’s friendly.  Jurgen Klinsmann did his usual post-roster Q&A.

Grant Wahl caught up with Landon Donovan about his post-career plans.  Expect to see a Landon Donovan tifo on Friday.  And Donovan doesn’t think his World Cup snub was personal by Klinsmann.

While there should be changes to the roster between Friday’s friendly and next week’s friendly, Fabian Johnson had to pull out due to a Achilles tendon problem.

A few goals this past weekend by Marc Heider, Andrew Stadler, Jordan Seabrook, Cesar Romero and Jerome Kiesewetter.  We also had assists from Fabian Johnson and Rubio Rubin.

Rubin’s two assists actually led to him to be on at least one Eredivisie Team of the Weekend.

Andrew Wooten doesn’t appear to be on US Soccer’s radar at the moment.

I see you, Clint Dempsey.

Doug McIntyre is hearing that Jozy Altidore turned down an MLS offer last January.

Steven Goff has a little update on Juan Agudelo.  I like the thought of vacant lots being owned by various soccer players trying to acquire a passport from Cyprus.

The US U-17 team is down in Panama and Christian Pulisic scored a nice goal.

Amando Moreno scored a goal over the weekend with Tijuana’s U-20 team.

US U-18 forward Mukwelle Akale is getting a lot of interest in possibly joining Villarreal in Spain.

Pablo Punyed and Stjarnan won the league title in Iceland this past weekend.

There was an American sighting at PSG this past weekend . . . but it was just Olympic Track and Field champion Carl Lewis.

And finally, various oddsmakers in the UK have the US as the favorite to host the 2022 World Cup.
