Hump day links
   February 27, 2013 (12:02 AM) by Matt Benson

Yesterday was a slightly crazy one with stuff happening all day long.  We had the US U-20 team qualifying for the U-20 World Cup, Stuart Holden made his first league appearance since March 19, 2011 and Joe Corona/Edgar Castillo scored for Tijuana in Copa Libertadores action.

As for some links.

The US U-20 team is headed to Turkey this summer for the U-20 World Cup after beating Canada 4-2 yesterday.  The U-20 World Cup starts up on June 21, while the draw will be held on March 25.  While they did qualify yesterday, there are still potentially two more games left in the CONCACAF U-20 Championship.  The US will play Cuba in the semifinals on Friday and will be without the services of Cody Cropper, Jerome Kiesewetter, Luis Gil and Caleb Stanko the rest of the way as they return to their club teams.

One player who could potentially be on that U-20 team come June is Anthony Brooks.  And Every Touch Footy decided to do a video of Brooks’ performance against Kaiserslautern from this past weekend.

As I stated above, Stuart Holden made his first league appearance in 711 days yesterday.  It sounds like he did alright and was “neat and tidy”.

Edgar Castillo and Joe Corona scored in Copa Libertadores action last night, becoming the first Americans to score in that competition since Nicky Torres in 2011.  And here is a photo of them celebrating after Castillo’s goal.

Sebastian Lletget scored a goal yesterday in U-21 action as West Ham lost to Wolverhampton 2-1.

Kenneth Di Vita Jensen also scored a goal, but in a friendly for Hønefoss.

Stoke City’s Robert Huth could be missing some time in the future.  Does this mean some playing time at centerback for Geoff Cameron?

Clint Dempsey is expected to miss one to two weeks with a calf strain.

Jermaine Jones did an interview with after his good performances last week.

USMNT assistant coach Martin Vasquez has been in Mexico checking in on DaMarcus Beasley and Michael Orozco Fiscal.

Will Parchman tries to answer some questions about Jozy Altidore.

The US U-17 team is down in Panama and tied them 1-1 yesterday with Junior Flores scoring the lone goal for the US.

Greg Seltzer recently talked to Conor O’Brien about his move to FC Nordsjælland.

And finally, Jamel Johnson (not to be confused with Arlesey Town’s Jemal Johnson) is now in Austria at SV Gersthof.  Gersthof play in the Austrian Landesliga (fourth tier).

Friendly goal madness
   February 15, 2013 (5:16 PM) by Matt Benson

I have posted these in the various links posts the last couple days, but I thought I would embed all three in one post since three guys scored goals this week.

Brian Span scored a goal for Djurgårdens IF in their 3-2 win over FC Lahti on Thursday.

Justin Moose scored a goal for SJK in a preseason tournament in Finland (1:25 mark).

And Kenneth Di Vita Jensen scored for Hønefoss in a 3-2 win over HJK Helsinki on Wednesday (4:50 mark).

Europa League Thursday links
   February 14, 2013 (12:02 AM) by Matt Benson

Lets start off with some Europa League-oriented links as the Round of 32 begins today.

Brad Friedel is getting the start for Tottenham as they take on Lyon in Europa League.  Friedel has started only three matches (1 Europa League and 2 FA Cup) since the beginning of December.

Left off the US U-20 roster, Marc Pelosi did not make Liverpool’s Europa League travel squad for today’s game against Zenit St. Petersburg.

While US fans were holding out hope for Pelosi to get the 20th spot on the US U-20 team, Tab Ramos announced yesterday that Colorado Rapids’ Dillon Serna will get that spot.  The US U-20 team kicks off the CONCACAF U-20 Championship on Monday against Haiti at 5:30 PM Central on Fox Soccer.

Steven Goff does his yearly look over US Soccer’s tax records.  This time for the time period between April 2011 through March 2012.  The US had a shortfall of $3.1 million over that time frame.

Brian Sciaretta caught up with Matt Besler to talk about his first callup with the USMNT.

Greg Seltzer clears his notebook with various stats and notes.

Sean Cunningham is currently training with Norwegian Adeccoligaen side Hødd.

A couple guys were saw the field yesterday.  Preston Zimmerman got the start and played 48 minutes in Darmstadt 98’s 0-0 draw to Babelsberg 03 in German 3. Liga action.  Justin Moose scored a goal in SJK’s 4-2 win in some tournament called IV KOMIA.  And Kenneth Di Vita Jensen scored a goal for Hønefoss and Steve Clark played the first half in a 3-2 win over HJK Helsinki in a friendly.  Here are highlights from the match with his goal coming around the 4:50 mark.

A couple links for Thursday
   January 24, 2013 (8:42 PM) by Matt Benson

Looks like a few things came out today after I posted the Jonathan Borrajo signs with Mjøndalen post.

Looks like we can call off the dogs on the Brek Shea to Stoke City stuff.  While some people think it is because MLS denied the transfer, BBC is saying because of his injury.

Brian Sciaretta got some quotes about Ben Spencer’s trial at Molde FK.

Leander Schaerlaeckens has an interesting story on Brad Friedel.  Friedel stayed at Tottenham to help facilitate his UEFA coaching license.

According to some papers in Scotland, Celtic hope to hear whether Chivas USA like their offer for Juan Agudelo or not in the near future.

Remember when I posted about the rumor USMNT centennial jerseys?  Sounds like they are coming in March.

Greg Seltzer decided to clear his notebook on various Yanks abroad and even gave us a little shout out for our Inside the Numbers story on Clint Dempsey and Jozy Altidore.

Who wants to see a photo of Marc Pelosi and Villyan Bijev having fun in the snow?  Here you go.

Kenneth Di Vita Jensen ended last season on loan to Ullensaker / Kisa and it looks like Hønefoss are trying to send him out on loan again.

From a US OT perspective

Josh Gatt will be playing Champions League football next year. Mikkel Diskerud will be playing in the Europa League.

Chad Barrett with Valerenga will be staying in the Eliteserien as will Steve Clark with Honefoss.

Sean Cunningham (on loan from Molde) and Erik Benjaminsen with Stabaek will be in the First Division.

Decided in the Playoff; either Kenneth Di Vita Jensen (on loan from Honefoss) with Ullensaker will be in Eliteserien or will remain in the First Division.

Ullensaker vs. Sandefjord Highlights
   November 15, 2012 (1:07 AM) by Matt Benson

David posted about the promotion/relegation playoffs going on in Norway earlier today.  Kenneth Di Vita Jensen scored what turned out to be the game-winner in Ullensaker’s 4-3 victory.  They jumped out to 4-0 lead, but Sandefjord came back with three goals.  Ullensaker next play Bodø / Glimt this weekend with the winner playing whoever finishes in 14th place of the Eliteserien for a spot in next year’s Eliteserien.  But here is Di Vita Jensen’s goal from today.

Norway’s First Division Playoffs
   November 14, 2012 (1:52 AM) by David

Norway First Division Playoffs

With all the accolades for Norway Eliteserien Champions Molde, and USMNT/Molde forward Josh Gatt, lost in the noise is the promotional playoff situation for teams in Norway’s First Division.

While Eliteserien has one more week of the regular season left, the First Division is complete and now moves on to promotion/relegation playoffs. While the Eliteserien relegation picture will not be decided until this weekend, the First Division promotional playoffs start today.

How it Works

The Eliteserien will relegate three teams. Stabaek are relegated already, while three other teams are trying to stave off relegation (one will be automatically relegated). The team finishing above the bottom two will enter into the relegation playoff.

The First Division will promote three teams. Start and Sarpsborg 08 are promoted already. The four teams (places three through six) now enter the promotional playoff. Sandefjord #3, Mjondalen #4, Bodo/Glimt #5 and Ullensaker #6, will play the first round today followed by the final qualifier this weekend.

#4 Mjondalen  v  #5 Bodo/Glimt

#3 Sandefjord  v  #6 Ullensaker

The winner of the final qualifier will then play the Eliteserien team that qualified as relegation playoff.

US Player Involvement

Two of the four teams vying for the First Division promotion playoffs have US players:

#4 Mjondalen                    Rhett Bernstein and Kyle Helton

#6 Ullensaker                    Kenneth Di Vita Jensen

Fourth place Mjondalen gets to play at home and will be favorites to advance. Ullensaker, who went through a mini-collapse at the end of the regular season, will have to visit third place Sandefjord.

At the bottom

A number of US players leave First Division with their clubs due to relegation to Second Division.

Baerum                                Sebastion Troupe            Despite a late season run ended in 14th place

Alta IF                                  Brendan King                    Finished in last place, 16th
