Seis de Mayo links
   May 6, 2015 (12:19 AM) by Matt Benson
 

Had one too many margaritas last night?  Nothing a few links can’t help.

As Howie posted yesterday, Birmingham City is letting Will Packwood go while offering Jonathan Spector a new contract.

I posted a couple tidbits on the USMNT, U-23 and U-17 teams earlier this week but I also forgot to include that the U-23 team will be holding a camp in England in September.  They will play friendlies against England and Qatar during the camp.

Jordan Morris made an appearance on the Men in Blazers podcast last and it was enjoyable.

The biggest smile you have ever seen on Michael Bradley?

Edgar Castillo made ESPN’s Liga MX Team of the Weekend.

The Guardian’s Jack Kerr interviewed Fabian Johnson.

According to Terrence Boyd’s Instagram, he is having minor surgery this week to remove a cyst from his calf and to clean out his knee.

It looks like Fulham (and Emerson Hyndman) will be wearing a 1975 FA Cup Final inspired shirt next year.  I believe this is the first collar on a Fulham shirt since 2007-08.

Amando Moreno really wants to make the U-20 World Cup roster as he scored two goals last Friday and followed that up with another goal yesterday with Tijuana’s U-20 team.

Marc Pelosi did not play with Liverpool’s U-21 team last week because he got to train with the senior team.

And it looks like Liverpool might have their eyes on another American youth player in Adolfo Trujillo.

Fox Sports is expected to land the TV rights to next year’s Copa América Centenario.

Danny Cruz might need to borrow Mike Conley’s mask at the current rate of getting cleats to the face this past week.

J.R. Eskilson spoke to Sam Strong about how an encounter with Jurgen Klinsmann in an airport helped him get his US U-23 call-up last month.

Steven Goff is hearing that Duke product Jeremy Ebobisse and Virginia’s Jake Rozhansky are headed to Europe for some trials.

I recently learned of another former US Soccer Development Academy player in Germany.  Faisal Almubaslat is a 17-year-old winger at Tennis Borussia Berlin playing with their U-17 team in the B-Junioren Bundesliga Nord/Nordost.  He had a few goals and assists in April as you can see in these highlights against RB Leipzig and Concordia Hamburg.

And finally, a little plug for our goal tracker.  There have been a lot of goals, especially in lower leagues, as of late and it will keep you up to date with who is scoring (and links to highlights when available).

A few links for Monday
   March 30, 2015 (12:04 AM) by Matt Benson
 

Here are a few links to start your week.

Aron Johannsson has been ruled out for Tuesday’s game with a toe infection.  Jordan Morris has been called in from the US U-23 team in Bosnia to replace him.

Jurgen Klinsmann told ESPN’s Doug McIntyre that he plans on calling in the Euro-based players for the June friendlies against Germany and Netherlands even though most of the European seasons end in early May and the Gold Cup is not until July.  So much for any vacation.

Normally a wing player for the US but he plays centrally at the club level, Alejandro Bedoya is willing to play wherever on the field for the USMNT.

The US finally found out its first opponent of the Gold Cup as Honduras overcame a 3-1 first leg deficit to beat French Guiana 4-3 aggregate.  The US will face Honduras at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas on July 7.

Here are highlights of the US U-23’s 5-2 win over Bosnia from Friday.  And here are some photos from training with the U-23ers.

The US U-23 team will be taking on Mexico’s U-23 team at the StubHub Center on Wednesday, April 22.  Tickets will go on sale this Thursday.  I might have to pick up a ticket for this.

The U-20 team lost their game against England’s U-21 team, 2-1, on Sunday.  Here is the game report.  Hopefully the highlights will become available in the next couple of days.

In case you missed it, Freddy Adu signed with Finnish side KuPS.  He won’t be the only American at the club as former New England Revolution defender Stephen McCarthy signed with the club in January.

Also in Finland, former Santa Clara forward Harrison Hanley signed with Mikkelin Palloilijat.  He has already played in a couple Suomen Cup matches.

Chris Tsonis was last seen in Iceland with Fjölnir last season but he is now with USL’s New York Red Bulls II.

Devann Yao scored a goal and had an assist in Neustrelitz’s 2-0 win over Greifswalder SV in the semifinals of the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Regional Cup last week.

Luca de la Torre scored two goals with Fulham’s U-18 team this weekend.  Still looking for highlights of the brace.

US U-17 forward Haji Wright has trained/trialed with some teams in Europe over the last two years but it looks like he is going to sign with the New York Cosmos.

Quentin Westberg finally found a new home in Norway with Sarpsborg 08.

Caleb Stanko looks like he is getting closer to returning to the field/training after tearing his ACL in 2014.

Want some more Google-translated interviews?  Here is one with Devante Parker.

And finally, it looks like a couple Americans (Tomas Buchmiller and Samuel Strong) are on trial with Eintracht Frankfurt.
