A.J. DeLaGarza put the Los Angeles Galaxy up a goal, but Humberto Suazo and Aldo De Nigris scored after the half to give Monterrey a 2-1 lead going into the second leg of the CONCACAF Champions League semifinal. The MLS club will have to go down to Mexico next week and win by two goals or more if it wants to reach the final. Yeah, about that. Landon Donovan came on as a second-half substitute, making his first appearance at the Home Depot Center (it's still the Home Depot Center, right?) since the 2012 MLS Cup final. And then there's this:
Peter Vermes and Joe-Max Moore get elected to the United States Soccer Hall of Fame. Between them, the duo had 167 international caps and made a significant impact on the growth of the game in the 1990s. Vermes is currently the coach of Sporting Kansas City. The induction ceremony is scheduled for... later. Here he is talking about the honor and very much looking like Bob Bradley, no?
We like Herculez Gomez. We like Jason Davis. We really like Jason Davis on Herculez Gomez.
Tim Howard and Everton take on Clint Dempsey and Tottenham this weekend. Dempsey should figure and Howard seems ready as well. He's "relishing" the chance to take points from Spurs.
Freddy Adu is getting after it in Brazil. He's all signed up and ready to play at Bahia.
