A bunch of youthful links for Thursday
   August 27, 2015 (12:03 AM) by Matt Benson
 

It has been a good week for US youth players.

Lynden Gooch scored in his third straight U21 game over the weekend (highlights), which led to him making his Sunderland senior team debut in their Capital One Cup win over Exeter City (photo).  And he spoke to Sunderland’s website following his debut.

Gedion Zelalem officially went on loan to Rangers this week.  Rangers’ website has a photo gallery of his first training session and an interview with him.  Then he went out to make his debut in yesterday’s Scottish Cup match against Airdrieonians and end up with two assists (and a hockey assist on a third goal) in the 5-0 win (highlights).

Andrija Novakovich scored a goal over the weekend in Reading U21s’ 2-1 win over Liverpool (highlights).

Andrija Novakovich’s former teammate at Reading, Aleks Gogic, spoke to Will about his time at Reading and his current stint with the Nike Academy.

Julian Green scored a goal in Bayern Munich II’s 2-1 win against Bayreuth on Tuesday.  Still no highlights available just yet, but here is a photo of Green in action.

Amando Moreno scored another goal with Tijuana’s U20 team over the weekend.  That gives him three goals on the season at the U20 level.

Cody Cropper got the start and made a couple saves in MK Dons’ 2-1 win over Cardiff City in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday (highlights).

A slight break from the youth train.  Geoff Cameron scored the clinching penalty kick (and it was nicely taken) in Stoke City’s 1-1 (8-7 on PKs) victory over Luton Town in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday (highlights).  And Matt Taylor has been on fire for Saarbrücken, scoring over the weekend against Pirmasens (highlights) and this week against Spielberg (highlights).

But you don’t care about these vets, you want more information on youth players.

The last time we heard about the US U-17 team, they lost their first game of the Vaclav Jezek Tournament.  They followed that up with draws against Slovenia and Slovakia.  Then finished the tournament with a win over Ukraine.

While he plays with Fulham’s U21 team, Emerson Hyndman has been called in to the US U-23s’ September camp.

US U-17 forward (and dual national) Kai Koreniuk has accepted a call-up with Netherlands’ U-18 team.

Josh Deaver has three different tweets about Ben Lederman’s current situation with Barcelona.

O When The Yanks gives us an update on Djair Parfitt-Williams’ citizenship.  He has become a regular with West Ham United’s U21 team.

Bayern Munich just spent €500,000 on 16-year-old midfielder Timothy Tillman.  He is a dual national of Germany and the United States.  He has featured for Germany’s U15 team, but he has told O When The Yanks that he would be interested in the US.

French-American forward Dylan Alexis Romney is now on loan with Savona from Inter Milan.

Former US international and youth coach Hugo Perez is now going to be an assistant coach for El Salvador.

Robbie Kristo spurned MLS for Italian Serie B side Spezia back in February and now he is headed out on loan to Fidelis Andria in Lega Pro (third tier).

Devann Yao finished last season with Neustrelitz and now he is still in Germany but with Kickers Offenbach.

Probably won’t know the USMNT roster for September’s friendlies until after this weekend, but here is Peru’s roster.

Copa America Centenario is taking place next summer.  We just don’t know whether CONCACAF will be involved or not.

DeAndre Yedlin is getting some loan interest from teams in England and Spain.

Tijuana’s website has a little story up on Paul Arriola.

San Diego State product Ata Ozbay has signed with Finn Harps in Ireland.

And finally, Kenya Brown caught up with Alex DeJohn about his season in Norway.

A bunch of links for Tuesday morning
   August 11, 2015 (12:04 AM) by Matt Benson
 

A bunch of random stuff for Tuesday.

The US U-23ers held their College ID camp (the college version of Camp Cupcake?) this past week and ended it with a 3-1 win over Tijuana’s Segunda Premier team.  The US goals came from Paul Salcedo (California) Mac Steeves (Providence) and Brandon Vincent (Stanford).  US Soccer has some highlights of the match, while here is a write-up from Tijuana’s website.

A couple people have recently asked me to do a “23 Names” type article on the U-23 team, but ASN’s Josh Deaver just did something similar so go read that.

One U-20 player who could be part of the U-23 team, Lynden Gooch, scored a goal and notched an assist in Sunderland U21s’ 3-1 win over Norwich City over the weekend.  You can check out both right here.

Another youth player, US U-17 midfielder Luca de la Torre, recorded an assist with Fulham’s U21 team over the weekend as well.

The German Cup had some interesting things happen this weekend to teams featuring Americans.  First we had someone shoot a gun at Hertha Berlin’s bus.  Luckily for John Brooks and his teammates, no one was on board when the shooting took place.  And while he is still out, Terrence Boyd’s RB Leipzig match against Osnabruck was abandoned in the 72nd minute after someone injured the ref by throwing a lighter at him.  Come on, Germany, you are better than that.

Geoff Cameron started at center back this past weekend in Stoke City’s loss to Liverpool.  Here is a photo of him in action.  He also spoke to Goal.com about why he missed the Gold Cup.

While his manager might not like it, Timothy Chandler told the press that he plans on accepting future USMNT call-ups.

Jann George scored a goal for Jahn Regensburg this past weekend.  I can’t find highlights of it yet, but here is a photo of him celebrating the goal.

Zarek Valentin had a nice assist this weekend (as well as a nice fist pump).  Greg Seltzer also spoke to him about playing in Norway.

We had a bunch of other goals this past weekend and you can check out all the highlights by looking at our updated goal tracker.

As for some goals we don’t have highlights for just yet, Danish-American defender Jamil Fearrington is now at Brønshøj BK and he scored over the weekend.

Will Daniels scored another two goals this weekend for Ægir in their 4-3 win over Sindri.  His eight league goals are the third most in the Icelandic 2. Deild (third tier).

Kai Koreniuk is a 17-year-old forward who signed with Dutch side Vitesse last August.  He scored a goal this weekend with one of their youth teams (3:55 mark).

Ethan Horvath, Josh Gatt and Molde FK will next face Standard Liège in the playoff round of Europa League.

SC Freiburg midfielder Ethan Sonis is headed out on loan to NASL’s Jacksonville Armada FC.

Defender Shane O’Neill is leaving the Colorado Rapids for Apollon Limassol of Cyprus.  Maybe Juan Agudelo can give him some real estate tips.

The Vancouver Whitecaps have sent Erik Hurtado on loan to Norwegian side Mjøndalen IF.  He will join fellow American Rhett Bernstein at the club.

After scoring 19 league goals for Landskrona over the last two years, Andrew Stadler has moved on to Östersunds FK.

After being cut by Galway United last week, Kevin Garcia has signed with Vasteras SK in Sweden.

Tristan Bowen is back in Europe and is now with Freddy Adu’s former Finnish team KuPS.  Bowen first experienced Europe in 2011-12 while on loan with Belgium side K.S.V. Roeselare.

Tijuana’s website has another story up on their Americans at the club.

Staying with the Mexican-American theme, the Total Soccer Show had Tom Marshall on this week to talk about El Tri, Liga MX and Mexican-American dual nationals.  No one covering Liga MX has a better British accent than Tom.

And finally, Will likes to rank goalies and has his updated Top 100 list for you as well as some bonus lists.
