  • American Soccer Now’s very own Brian Sciaretta penned this piece on DaMarcus Beasley for the New York Times. Beasley, 35, is seeking to become the first Yank to play in five World Cups and one of only two male field players to do so. 
  • The Post is covering the match — the New York Post, that is. 
  • The New York Daily News  did its thing. 
  • Matthew Futterman of the Wall Street Journal previewed the contest. 
  • Even got in on the action.
