Catching up on links
   May 28, 2015 (1:24 AM) by Matt Benson
 

I am still playing catch up on the soccer world as work decided to kick me as soon as I got back into the office after the mini vacation.  Enough babbling.

In case you missed what happened on the field over the past weekend, Roderick has you covered.  I was finally able to go back to update the goal tracker from the few goals over the last week, including links to goals by Moises Orozco, Cesar Romero, Björn Maars Johnsen, Harrison Hanley and Jonathan Bornstein.

Also earlier this week, we unveiled the sixth edition of the legendary OT XI.  Plus we picked our MVP of the season as well as goal and performance of the year.  So go check that out.

The USMNT will face Germany on June 10 and will face a pretty tough roster (shocker!) although it is missing Manuel Neuer, Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller.

Also while glancing at rosters, Mexico’s provisional Gold Cup roster features 11 players who play abroad.

The US U-23 team opened up the Toulon Tournament with a disappointing 3-1 loss to France yesterday.  Here are some highlights.  Sounds like Jordan Morris was the only player who did somewhat well for the US.  Also, if you missed the roster of the team (since it came out while I was gone), here that is.  Luis Gil was apparently on the initial roster, but Real Salt Lake was able to keep him after a little talk with US Soccer.

One player on that roster, Cody Cropper, is searching for a new club after parting ways with Southampton.  While he is likely to stay in England, Ives Galarcep is hearing that Cropper is on the discovery list of at least three MLS teams.

The US U-20 team is getting ready for the U-20 World Cup in New Zealand and Tab Ramos had to make one roster change since Russell Canouse picked up an injury.  He was replaced by Orlando City’s Conor Donovan.  Landon Donovan also made an appearance at training this week.

Junior Flores is not on the U-20 roster and is now giving El Salvador a look as of last week.

A few players picked up new contracts in Europe over the last week.  Alfredo Morales will be playing in the Bundesliga next season as he signed an extension with Ingolstadt.  Geoff Cameron is sticking with Stoke City through 2018.  And Jon-Paul Pittman re-signed with Grimsby Town.

Nothing super new to report on Josh Gatt’s latest injury, but he is waiting on a second opinion to discover how good/bad the knee is.

DeAndre Yedlin went the full 90 minutes yesterday in Tottenham’s 2-1 win over the Malaysia XI All-Stars.  Here is a photo gallery from the game.

Oguchi Onyewu is training/trailing with NYCFC.

The man, the myth, the legend, Jonathan Bornstein was on MLS’ ExtraTime Radio this week.

Antonee Robinson was named Everton’s Academy Players’ Player of the Year.

Will recently interviewed Iranian-American goalkeeper Ashkan Khosravi.  He also updated his May goalkeeper post with a bunch of goodies.

Oh yeah, something happened with FIFA this week.

Ararat vs. Banants Highlights
   May 6, 2015 (7:36 PM) by Matt Benson
 

We actually have highlights from Armenia that don’t involve Cesar Romero.  Both Bryan de la Fuente and Moises Orozco started for Ararat this past Sunday with de la Fuente scoring the tying goal from the penalty spot.  Here are some highlights with his goal coming at the 3:00 mark.

Keeping updated on player movement in lower leagues
   April 7, 2015 (12:02 AM) by Matt Benson
 

While most people are aware when the Freddy Adu’s of the world make a transfer, there have been a lot of moves made at the lower leagues involving Americans over the last couple months.  With the help with David (who helps me on a lot of the behind the scenes stuff), here are some of the moves we do know with a bunch of the Scandinavian leagues set to kickoff in the next couple weeks.

Paul Torres was at Landskrona in Sweden last season and now he is with Sandnes Ulf in Norway.

As for another player leaving Sweden, Andy Lorei scored a couple goals for Bodens BK last season, but he has returned to the US and has signed with the Tulsa Roughnecks.

Lorei isn’t the only player returning to the US.  Kevin Sawchak has signed with the Atlanta Silverbacks after bouncing around Finland since 2011, spending his last season with the always fun named KooTeePee.

Taylor University product Matt Poland has signed with Finnish side Sporting Kristina.  And it looks like ex-USL Pro winger Tyrone Hall is also on the team.

Going back to Sweden, Sandvikens IF have recently signed Chris Harris.  Looking at their roster, you will also see they have fellow Americans Adam Kelemet, Anthony Allison and Seth Rudolph.

Want another smaller team with a bunch of Americans?  I was already aware that US U-23 potential goalkeeper Tyler Miller was at SVN Zweibrücken in Germny, but they also have Americans Jimmy Lannon and Evin Nadaner.  I remember when Lannon was at FC Lustenau in Austira, but it looks like he also had a stop with German side 1.FCA Darmstadt in between.

Staying in Germany, Nigerian-American Abuchi Obinwa has been promoted from Hannover 96’s U-19 team to their U-23 team recently as he made a bench appearance in a Regionalliga game at the end of March.

Also in the Regionalliga, defensive midfield Jonathan Koshko signed with Wormatia Worms back in February.  It looks like he was also at 1.FCA Darmstadt with Jimmy Lannon at one point.

Want to cheer for a player in the Faroe Islands Premier League?  Mayowa Alli has you covered.  He was last seen at Vendsyssel FF in Denmark but he is now out on loan to KÍ Klaksvík.

For all you Armenian Premier League die-hards, you are well aware that Bryan de la Fuente is on Ararat Yerevan (duh?!).  He is now joined by Moises Orozco and Victor Garza.

For those of you that remember the run up to the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship, Jay Denny was a midfielder who captained the US U-20 team a couple times but missed out on the tournament due to commitments at Stoke City (that is what wiki tells me).  Since then, he has bounced around various teams in the lower levels of England and he has recently signed with Conference National side Worcester City.  This will be his second stint with the Faithful after playing in two games with them in 2012-13.

This is a shout-out to OT reader Trent who loves himself some Irish soccer and now he was a new player to keep track of in forward Michael Lyons who signed with Irish First Division side Cabinteely.

And finally, for those of you running the J.C. Mack fan club, I don’t know exactly where he is, but he played in a game with Jaro in Finland in February and was last seen on trial with Dalkurd FF in Sweden in March.

With the Scandinavian leagues starting up over the next couple weeks, I am sure we will find out about more guys popping up on random teams.

Former YNTers signing in the NPSL roundup
   April 21, 2014 (1:10 PM) by Howie Michaels
 

As avid readers of this site, I’m sure many of you have been vexed by such questions as “Whatever happened to Alex Molano?” and “Where did Vincenzo Bernardo wind up, anyways?” If you’ve lost sleep trying to figure out the answers to these types of questions, I have good news: we’ve solved some mysteries.

Vincenzo Bernardo, who came up with Napoli’s youth system before Napoli’s brief run as the cool team for American fans to root for, was last seen playing in the 2nd tier of Guatemala after having also played in the lower levels of Switzerland and the US. He has resurfaced in the US again, signing with Miami United FC of the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) (semi-pro quasi-4th tier).

Meanwhile, in Texas, Dallas City FC has stacked their roster with players you’ve heard of from their days with the U-20s and U-17s:

– Victor Garza (Tigres academy)

– Moises Orozco (Tigres academy)

– Alex Molano (Dinamo Zagreb)

– Marlon Duran (FC Dallas)

They also have Bryan Levya, a former FC Dallas guy who I don’t believe was ever US-eligible.
