Since this is an official FIFA date, I believe clubs have to release any player called up by his country. I would hope that since we're looking at friendlies for the USMNT they'd let our guys skip out, but not sure the Paraguay and Panama federations will have much sympathy.

Let's hope Long and Adams get a "cold".


Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

Guzan is still going, but Steffen has pulled out with a hamstring strain.  I wonder if that limited him yesterday.  He sure did not look good on the third goal.

 

Steffen has been replaced by Jonathan Klinsmann.

Steffen ... did not look good on the third goal.


IMO he was completely unsighted, as two defenders scissored in front on him as Royer blasted the rocket.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

i am really curious if the Venezuela national team will make Martinez go to Japan and then Doha for back to back matches.  That would be brutal for Atlanta.
