The American forward was excellent against Mexico and he's getting some deserved love following his performance. Elsewhere, we have television ratings and Stars and Stripes rankings.

  • Could the key for the United State be Eddie Johnson doing the "Brian McBride stuff." Here's one case that the answer is yes.

  • Speaking of U.S.-Mexico, the match drew a 1.9 rating overnight in metered markets, which is the highest ever, which basically means soccer is growing slowly in America. You're welcome for the update.

  • Soccer Over There tracked down video of Julian Green scoring a bunch more goals. We think. It's all German to us.
  • Mexico reportedly hires Victor Manuel Vucetich as coach. Your thumbnail resume, courtesy of SI.com: "After winning championships with multiple other Mexican clubs, Vucetich spent the last four years in charge of Liga MX’s Monterrey. The club became one of the most successful teams in the CONCACAF region with Vucetich at the helm, capturing the Liga MX Apertura in 2009 and 2010 in addition to three consecutive CONCACAF Champions League titles from 2010 to 2013. He also led Monterrey to success on the international stage, with a third-place finish at the FIFA Club World Cup in 2012. Vucetich interviewed for the Mexican national team post in 2010, but eventually declined the opportunity."
