I’m not going to lie, this weekend got me a little excited for most of the seasons to start up again next month. A few more leagues started up this weekend, plus we had more than a few Americans find the back of the net on Saturday. To get a recap on what happened on Saturday, including links to some highlights, check that out right here.
Then we had a few more interesting things happen on Sunday. Daniel Antunez scored a goal in Inter Turku’s 6-0 thrashing of KuPS.
Conor O’Brien did not score this weekend, but he had an assist in SønderjyskE’s 1-1 draw with Copenhagen. You can check out highlights of that right here.
Staying in Denmark, Clarence Goodson picked up a yellow card for an elbow to the face. You can see that right here.
While most thought Jann George would be playing with FK Senica in Slovakia, he ended up playing with Nurnberg II in the Regionalliga on Sunday. Upon tweeting this news, the always good Brian Sciaretta informed me that his loan deal had been canceled.
Michael Bradley and Roma whooped up on Polish club Zaglebie Lubin at Wrigley Field on Sunday. Here is a team photo of Roma before the game.
I talked about this briefly in the recap from Saturday post, but Josh Gatt had to leave the game early after scoring on Saturday. According to this article, with the somewhat help of Google Translate, it looks like he strained his thigh and could miss Tuesday’s Champions League game. Then again, Google Translate could have mixed up thigh strain with losing a limb and we will never know (he didn’t lose a limb).
Sacha Kljestan came off the bench at the end of Anderlecht’s 3-2 win over Lokeren in the Belgian Super Cup on Sunday. Also, here is what their home shirts for this season will look like.
Charlie Davies made his Randers debut this weekend as well, coming off the bench for 21 minutes in Randers’ 1-0 win over OB.
And finally, I know a lot of people have been wondering about Zak Whitbread’s fate, myself included. Finally some word is coming out that he could be headed to Leicester City in the near future. Leicester City finished ninth, nine points away from a promotion playoff spot, in last year’s English League Championship.
