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.
