Wednesday Night Stuff

I missed this in today’s The OT Report, but Carlos Bocanegra went the distance in Saint-Etienne’s 1-1 draw to Valenciennes.

The US U-17s are in Phoenix playing some friendlies this week.  They defeated South Korea, 2-1, tonight behind goals from Matt Dunn and Mario Rodriguez.

Goalkeeper Chris Konopka is currently on trial in Poland at Jagiellonia Bialystok.  You can read about it here and here.

Greg Seltzer over at MLSsoccer.com caught up with Eugene Starikov.  And Seltzer talks to a little birdie over at US Soccer that confirms that Bob Bradley is aware of Starikov.

And while that article points out that Starikov will be returning to Zenit St. Petersburg, this tweet by some sportswriter in London that follows the Russian Premier League claims that Starikov has made his move to Tom Tomsk permanent (thanks to Over There twitter follower @fisk42 for the tip).  Hopefully more on his actual status will come out soon.

And finally, by the time many of you read this, we should know whether the US will host the 2022 World Cup or not.  Hopefully one of the world’s greatest events will be coming back to the US.  The 1994 World Cup was one thing that really drew me to soccer as a fan at a young age.

    hahaha quatar?????? cmon man this is bs… theyve never qualified for a world cup and now the become host??? just goes to show how retarded FIFA is when it comes to making big decisions. absolutley stupid.

  2. Kyle says:

    Why would they give an automatic spot to a country that can’t even field a team of World Cup quality?

    Won’t allow women to wear tank tops either. Definitely not going.

    I’m sorry Qatar, but I go to the world cup to see fine Paraguayan models cheer on the sidelines. What a joke FIFA is. They are going to lose potentially billions of dollars from this decision. Anyone who goes, have fun getting blown up.

    Disappointing, but not surprising considering it is FIFA.

    It’s absolutely appalling. Isn’t it funny how the most oil-soaked corrupt and backwards countries got it? Blatter talks a good talk, but this whole ‘legacy’ thing is not about football’s legacy, but his own. Now he can leave and brag about bringing the cup to all these ridiculous places. Still fuming. But hey, we’ll get to see a great bunch of Uruguayan rejects playing for Qatar in 12 years! Should be fun… watching from my television at home.
