Here are some links that I may have missed in the last couple days. Some good reading material before the games start up tomorrow (technically today in some parts of the US right now).

» American Exports preview: Nats vs. Nats [MLSsoccer.com]

» American Exports: Preview of Yanks in the Bundesliga [MLSsoccer.com]

» UEFA may act over Brad Guzan’s Vienna barrage [BBC Sport]

» Clark committed to long term at Honefoss [Yanks Abroad]

» Ferrari refutes Siracusa rumor [Yanks Abroad]

» Porter shows youth national team pipeline still has plenty of Zip [SI.com]

And finally, Match Fit USA decided to do a “18 tickets” type article as they attempted to guess the 2012 Olympic squad in three parts:  Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3

An ambitious effort on their part.  And it is easy to critique on my end considering I didn’t spend a lot of time trying to do this myself.  One small nitpick on my end, but if you include Samir Badr in the “in the picture” section for the goalkeepers, I think you have to add Zac MacMath as well.  MacMath was on the 2010 Milk Cup title team and got the start over Badr in the final (two clean sheets in the tournament).   The University of Maryland keeper is also in England training with Tim Howard at Everton this month.

But that was just one little thing I noticed, a solid job on the “18 tickets” by Match Fit USA.

Another American may be bound for Denmark

Greg Selzer via MLSSoccer.com has reported that Kofi Sarkodie, a defender for the University of Akron Zips, is on trial with Danny Califf’s old club in Denmark, FC Midtjylland.

Despite only being in college (albeit for the national runners-up whose only defeat came on penalties), Sarkodie has generated a bit of buzz in US soccer circles, with Ives even including him on his initial projected 2014 World Cup roster. Here is a brief description of him from Ives:

Sarkodie- He’s an exciting fullback who can overlap well and deliver dangerous crosses. He’ll be in MLS by 2011 and is one of the most exciting college prospects around. Yes, he’s our long-shot young player on the squad.

It sounds as though a decision will be made on Sarkodie by the 2010 Danish Cup runners-up by the end of the weekend, depending on what happens to New Zealand international Winston Reid.
