A whole bunch of links

Some of these are a couple days old, but between life and the USMNT, I was saving them up for one big link drop.

Speaking of the USMNT, Greg Seltzer gives us a pre-Hex to-do list for Jurgen Klinsmann.

These were written before Tuesday’s game, but here are some interviews by Brian Sciaretta with Joe Corona and Geoff Cameron.

Sciaretta also informs us that Bolivian-American center back Alejandro Melean became cap tied to Bolivia this week.

Back to the US’ 3-1 win over Guatemala.  Jon Arnold got some post-game quotes from various USMNT players.  And if you missed this, ESPN/Julie Foudy did a great video piece on Herculez Gomez.

And Grant Wahl talks about Eddie Johnson’s comeback.  I will admit that I was skeptical about Johnson’s call-up, but he looked very good in both games and looks to be playing with a lot of confidence right now.

I got e-mailed this over the weekend, but here are two radio interviews with Stoke City’s Geoff Cameron and Maurice Edu.

Some good news on the Stuart Holden front.  He will be returning to training with Bolton this week.

ESPN’s Ravi Ubha has a story up on Oguchi Onyewu about his move to Malaga.

We already told you about Christian Eissele scoring 20 goals for Kemi Kings in Finland this season, but it looks like he won the Golden Boot for the season.

St. Pauli played some friendlies during the international break and it looks like Joe Gyau scored a goal in 6-1 win over SC Wiener Viktoria on Saturday.  Here are highlights of the goals, including Gyau’s goal.

It looks like Kenneth Di Vita Jensen has moved on to Ullensaker / Kisa in the Norwegian First Division (second tier) and scored a goal this past weekend.

We told you last week about Babajide Ogunbiyi training at Hammarby.  It doesn’t look like Hammarby is going to sign him and he apparently failed his medical with the New York Red Bulls because of some heart condition.

    It would be nice to recruit Adam Henley or Gotoku Sakai.

    We need to blood Seb Hines.

  3. Trent Hill says:

    A completely separate comment: The passion Gomez shows in that video is a big reason why I love having him on the team. Altidore is criticized for a lack of passion and I’ve seen plenty of players who seem to not care about it enough. Gomez considers it everything. I love that. It’s the type of spirit that helps to make the USA team such a hard-scrabble, come-from-behind, never-give-up squad. Love it.

    Shame about babajide, I wish him the best.
