  • Fabian Johnson’s long-rumored move to Borussia Mönchengladbach is official. He’ll join on a free transfer at the end of the season. Borussia’s sporting director Max Eberl called Johnson a “very interesting player” who “can play on both sides of the pitch, both in defense and attack and we're delighted he has chosen to join us." The team currently sits sixth in the Bundesliga–in a Europa League spot–six points off a Champions League place.

  • Herculez Gomez wasn’t happy after only seeing the field for the final 12 minutes of Tijuana’s 3-0 loss to Chiapas on Friday. “I’ve proven I can put the ball in the back of the net everywhere I’ve been," Gomez said, "and when you’re down 3-0, you look at the clock, there’s only 15 minutes left and you’re still not in the game, that’s tough for anybody. I definitely take things like that personally.”

  • Still nothing on whether or not the friendly will be played in the Ukraine, but a German report has John Brooks getting called up.

  • ESPN released its full World Cup broadcast schedule. All three U.S. group games will be on ESPN, rather than ABC or The Deuce.

  • Brian McBride, Kristine Lilly and Bob Bradley make up the National Soccer Hall of Fame’s Class of 2014. Congratulations to all three.
