ASN Morning Read: A Win for the Kids at the Friendlies

The United States Under-17 team walks away with a championship; a former national team midfielder hopes to get a chance with a new coach; Major League Soccer is the place for center backs.

  • The United States U-17s won the Nike International Friendlies going away, dominating the competition with 15 goals scored and just two conceded. That includes Sunday's 3-0 win over Brazil.

  • And then they did this: 
  • Benny Feilhaber to ASN: 'It's on Me to Prove Myself'

  • American center backs are owning MLS

  • So is Toronto FC: "That first leg, which at one point saw Toronto trail 3-0, may yet be the true making of this Toronto team, though. If it can come back from that position, it can come back from anywhere. The parts are finally all in place, the conditions are finally right to win and with a similarly star-crossed and ambitious opponent to face in MLS Cup against Seattle, Toronto knows there never has been a better chance to shed its history and confirm a new era has finally arrived."
