  • Did anything happen in U.S. Soccer circles on Tuesday? Oh yeah, this from Brian Straus at The Sporting News. He came to drop bombs.

  • Reactions, please:'s Nick Firchau talks communication,'s Jeff Carlisle offers six steps to turn it around, I worry about the future implications, and ASN EIC John Godfrey goes a few ways.

  • But hey-o, there's still a game to play against Costa Rica on Friday evening. As a result, the U.S. is actually training. And posting photos on Instagram. One player who will be at practice is Brad Davis, a late addition to the American roster. He will serve as cover for Brek Shea, whose foot remains broken-ish.

  • CONCACAF president Jeffrey Webb wants four World Cup spots not three. Except, you know: "Right now, it's not on the table, there's no discussion and that is one of the disappointments from my standpoint." The Cayman Islands association head would like a country in the region to host the 2026 World Cup. He'd also like a country in the region to win said World Cup. Before would also be acceptable.

  • Brazil, now with more Freddy Adu. The Philadelphia Union malcontent will take a physical in hopes of joining Bahia. Freddy Adu in Brazil... it all seems to make sense.
