It looks like the final Gold Cup roster will be released on Thursday. That said, some players are already being leaked out, including Jose Francisco Torres, Landon Donovan and Jack McInerney. I was also asked to pick my own 23-man roster for another site and that should be up on their site on Thursday (I will link it once it becomes available).
One player that could be on that roster on Thursday is Alejandro Bedoya. I posted his goal from this weekend earlier this week. With that goal, he now has five goals and four assists in league play, becoming one of three Allsvenskan players with five or more goals and four or more assists on the season (also Mattias Lindström of Helsingborg and Gunnar Heidar Thorvaldsson of Norrköping).
As for some other goals this past weekend, Charlie Davies scored a goal in a preseason friendly against Vejle. In the Swedish Division 1 (3rd tier), Ryan Gracia scored for Nyköping while Andrew Stadler scored for Sandviken. You can keep track of all the goals scored with our goal tracker.
Stadler and Sandviken also won their Round 1 game of the 2013-14 Svenska Cupen yesterday. As for Ryan Gracia and Nyköping, they will be welcoming Americans Aubrey Perry and Charles Renken on a trial.
Tony Taylor passed his medical, so he is officially now with AC Omonia in Cyprus. As I posted earlier this week, AC Omonia will be playing in Europa League this upcoming season.
Andrew Wooten is back with Kaiserslautern for the preseason. In a fun game against fans, The Wooten Clan scored three times in a 12-0 victory. Then in a friendly against an actual team (FK Pirmasens), Wooten scored once and had an assist in a 7-1 win.
We have some new kits to check out in Germany. Here is Steve Cherundolo sporting Hannover 96’s new home kit. You can also see their away jersey here. And Michael Parkhurst will be wearing these at Augsburg in 2013-14.
Alex Labidou caught up with Brad Friedel recently. Friedel claims he is going to play until his body says he can’t.
Going from one old goalkeeper to a really young goalkeeper, Steven Goff has a story up on Arie Ammann, who signed with Watford’s youth academy earlier this month.
Goff also talked to Oguchi Onyewu this past weekend. Gooch is looking at other options as he doesn’t think he will end up back at Malaga.
And finally, Brian Sciaretta talked to Jose Villarreal before tomorrow’s U-20 game against Ghana. The US likely needs to win to make it out of the group stage.
