  • The United States U-17s beat Mexico, 4-3. A couple goals:

  • That’s good, right?

  • The best soccer stadium in America (the Portland Timbers’ home) is getting 4,000 seats better to the tune of 50 million (privately financed) dollars. That’s how you do it, Merritt. 
  • Does MLS (and the U.S. national team) have a goalkeeping problem? Arena ain’t having it: “I think you’re making an awful lot out of a couple of games. Did any attacking players miss a goal this past week or two? I don’t think you look at a game and draw all these conclusions. You look at the body of work that players present. You don’t look at one game or two games when there’s a mistake.”
  • This is a good thing:

  • Timmy Chandler and Christian Pulisic will face off for the DFB Pokal Cup. I hope they play one-on-one.
