Goals from the last couple of days
   August 7, 2014 (1:36 AM) by Matt Benson
 

Of course the weekend that I am gone has 12 goals scored by various Americans throughout Europe.  Here are some GIFs of the ones that have video evidence of the goal.  For the full list of goals, check out our goal tracker.

Matt Taylor opened up the 2014-15 season with a fun goal in Saarbrücken’s 2-2 draw to Homburg in German Regionalliga action on Friday.  He also scored a goal in the team’s second game, a 2-1 win over Freiburg II on Tuesday, but there are no highlights of that game just yet.

Coming off a 10-goal season in 2013-14, Marc Heider scored his first goal this season in Holstein Kiel’s 2-2 draw to Joe Gyau and Borussia Dortmund II over the weekend in German 3. Liga action.

Fabian Hurzeler is another player who has scored two goals in the last week.  The GIF below comes from Saturday’s 3-1 win by Hoffenhim II over Hessen Kassel.  He also scored in a 4-1 win over on Zweibrücken on Tuesday but the Sudwest highlight show hasn’t come online for the mid-week games yet.

Over in Sweden, Andrew Stadler scored his 10th goal of the season on Saturday in Landskrona’s 3-2 loss to Alex Horwath and Ljungskile.

On Sunday and over in Finland, Lawrence Smith scored his fifth goal of the season in GBK’s 3-0 win over OLS.

And also on Sunday, Jordan Seabrook scored his fourth goal of the season in VPS’s 3-1 loss to Lahti.

Some links before the weekend
   July 11, 2014 (1:04 AM) by Matt Benson
 

Mix Diskerud and his majestic hair scored a goal yesterday in Europa League action.  You can check it out here.  Three other guys scored goals yesterday in Iceland and Finland.  As always, our goal tracker has all the information on those.

Mix Diskerud wasn’t the only player in Europa League action on Thursday.  Sean Reynolds (FH) and Pablo Punyed (Stjarnan) are also advancing to the second qualifying round with Mix (Rosenborg), while Jordan Seabrook and VPS lost their first leg lead and were knocked out.

Clint Dempsey was on Late Show with David Letterman on Wednesday and here is the whole interview for those of you who missed it.

Birmingham City’s website broke some news yesterday.  They posted that Will Packwood was invited to the US U-23′s August friendly.  While this might also be the new U-21 team which is supposed to bridge the gap between the U-20 team to the Olympic and/or senior team, some form of a “Above-20″ youth team is having a quick camp and playing the Bahamas senior team in Nassau, Bahamas on August 6.  Hopefully US Soccer puts out a release on this game in the near future.

Speaking of young players to keep an eye on, Screamer came out with a Top 10 list of young players we could see on the 2018 World Cup team.  If you follow this site, you should probably know all of those guys.  If not, here is a chance to learn some more.

While everything has gone quiet on the DeAndre Yedlin-to-Roma front, Ives is hearing that the Roma deal is not as close as people think and that teams from Spain, Italy (including Roma) and England have expressed interest in Yedlin.

There was some talk earlier this week that teams from Europe were interested in Matt Besler and it looks like SC Freiburg might be one of those teams.

Sunderland manager Gus Poyet thinks, barring any hitches, Jozy Altidore should be good to go once he returns to the team’s preseason camp.

AZ Alkmaar manager Marco van Basten doesn’t appear to be overly impressed with Freddy Adu.  But it sounds like Adu did set up one of the goals in AZ’s friendly from Wednesday.

US U-20 midfielder Emerson Hyndman put in another 45 minutes with Fulham’s first team in a 4-2 loss to Rangers yesterday.

Jon Paul-Pittman is joining Dagenham & Redbridge’s training camp in Spain.  That is probably another step closer to potentially making the team.

Gedion Zelalem is back in preseason training with Arsenal and their new Puma gear.

Here are some more photos of Junior Flores playing with Borussia Dortmund’s U-23 team.

Brian Sciaretta caught up with Jeb Brovsky to talk about Brovsky’s loan to Norwegian side Stromgodset.

Jose Torres came off the bench in Tigres’ 4-1 loss to Morelia in the first leg of the SuperCopa MX on Wednesday.  Herculez Gomez was an unused sub on the bench.

Howie’s new favorite random player might be Tigran Tiraturyan (take that Alex Nimo and Fuad Ibrahim!) as he passed along this link to me about the Armenian-American signing with FC Pyunik in Armenian Premier League.

Enjoy the weekend.

Friday morning links

A bunch of random stuff for you before the weekend.

RB Leipzig’s website officially announced the signing of Terrence Boyd yesterday.

As Howie posted yesterday, Matt Besler and DeAndre Yedlin are getting some interest from Europe after their play in the World Cup.

According to Brian Sciaretta, Aron Johannsson is set to have ankle surgery before the start of the Eredivisie season.  It is unclear when he picked up the injury or how long he will be out.

Cody Cropper signed a new one-year deal with Southampton.

Puebla are trying to re-sign DaMarcus Beasley.  According to Eric Gomez, Puebla initially thought Beasley was asking for too much money but were impressed with his play in the World Cup.

Alejandro Bedoya gave all his USMNT teammates a nice gift after the World Cup.

Could Jermaine Jones be hinting at a move to MLS?

It sounds like Jurgen Klinsmann will be looking at a lot of younger players over the next year when it comes to the USMNT.

“A good thing about this next year is that we kind of have the opportunity to see a lot of young players coming to our platform, coming to the senior team,” said Klinsmann. “We can give them time to show where they are up to right now.

“The experienced players, or the older players, we can tell them for the next couple of months: ‘Go play in your club environment, we know you inside out anyway, we know what you bring to the table. But right now maybe there’s time for the next couple of friendlies that come up and over the next year that we want to see the young players grow and see how they can make it.’”

Greg Seltzer is hearing that at least one Eredivisie team and Genk are interested in Sacha Kljestan as well as Olympiacos.

Stuart Holden will continue to work out with Bolton despite not being under contract.  He will be allowed to play in any friendly, under-21 or development squad games but if he gets healthy again and Bolton want him back with the first team then he would have to sign a new deal.

A possible good sign on the Shawn Parker front?  He lists Germany and US for his nationality on Augsburg’s website.

Here are some photos of Junior Flores and Joe Gyau in action with Borussia Dortmund’s U-23 team.  Mario Rodriguez scored two goals for Borussia Mönchengladbach against Dortmund in this friendly.

Are you buying a Tijuana/Paul Arriola jersey this year?  Heads up that he switched numbers from #47 to a more squad-friendly #20.

Tyrone McCargo is no longer with Nurnberg’s U-23 team.  He is now with SK Austria Klagenfurt in the Austrian Regionalliga Mitte (third tier).

Adam Henley has returned to Blackburn Rovers early before training camp to finish rehabbing his ankle injury before the season starts.

Europa League started back up this week.  Pablo Punyed went 90 in Stjarnan’s 4-0 win over Bangor City.  A Mix Diskerud-less Rosenborg defeated Jelgava 4-0.  Jordan Seabrook came off the bench for 21 minutes in VPS’s 2-1 win over Brommapojkarna.

Alfred Koroma has had an impressive start with Fluminese’s reserve team.

I don’t know if this link will work for everyone, but for those of you that missed PBS’s documentary on Bob Bradley, here you go.

This will probably be the best World Cup analysis you read during the entire tournament.

And finally, one of the guys I hung out with during the World Cup put together a compilation video of the trip down to Brazil.  Hopefully this weekend I can sit down and type up a post with a bunch of my photos and stories from the trip.  It really was a once in a lifetime trip.  If you are even on the fence about going to Russia in 2018, you need to go.

VPS vs. KuPS Highlights
   May 12, 2014 (6:24 PM) by Matt Benson

Monday morning links

Lets start off with the weekend games.

While the weekend edition of The OT Report is out of commission for the fall, Steven Goff gives us his roundup of the Americans abroad.  As for some highlights.  Jordan Seabrook and Bobby Warshaw scored goals.  Paul Arriola was involved in the build up to Tijuana’s goal on Friday.  Steve Clark made some nice saves against Mix Diskerud and Rosenborg.  And earlier last week, Fabian Hurzeler had a brace in the German Regionalliga.  And you can check out the other goal scorers from the weekend with our goal tracker.

With a bunch of guys injured, here are the 20 players that Jurgen Klinsmann called in to face against Jamaica and Panama.  Klinsi did his usual post-roster Q&A with US Soccer’s website.  ESPN’s Doug McIntyre was told that there could (likely) going to be a couple roster changes after Friday’s game.  McIntyre also did a story on ESPN FC about the competition heating up for roster spots.

I know some people wanted a more experimental roster for these games since they are already qualified, but there are really not a lot of games left before next May’s camp with there being only one FIFA friendly fixture date in 2014.  So I could see why Klinsmann is sticking to his core group, allowing them to continue to get playing time with each other.

In some other USMNT-related news, FIFA has decided on how it will seed the teams for the World Cup.  It is the host nation plus the top seven teams from October’s FIFA rankings for Pot 1.  While it is still possible mathematically, it is pretty unlikely that the US can move into one of those top spots.

FIFA has also decided to fine Costa Rica $12,000 for fans whistling the US anthem before the September qualifier.  So take that, Costa Rica.

In the latest in rumorville, a report from Gazzetta has the US playing in a pre-World Cup friendly four-team tournament with Iran, a team from Europe and a team from South America somewhere in the US around May/June.

It looks like BeIN Sport has picked up the TV rights to the Egypt-Ghana World Cup qualifier for October 15.  It will be your chance to see Bob Bradley and his sweatpants live on TV for the first time in a while.

Sean Ingle of The Guardian has a story up on how it is hard to statistically look at goalkeepers and it has a small Tim Howard mention towards the end.  In in some obvious foreshadowing news, we might have a goalkeeper review in the near future.  Dramatic hamster.

Fresh off his goal with Birmingham City’s U-21 team, Will Packwood talked to ESPN’s Jeff Carlisle.

US U-18er Kyle Scott scored a goal against one of Southampton’s youth teams over the weekend and is now headed to France to meet up with the US U-18 team for a tournament.

The last time we heard from Dzenan Catic, he was playing with Kaiserslautern’s U-23 team in 2011-12.  But now it looks like he is playing at Davenport University in Michigan.

We should be adding some new content to the site over the next couple weeks, in case you haven’t noticed one addition already, so there should hopefully be some more information coming soon.
