  • Stuart Holden suffered more heartbreak in his first game since the Gold Cup final. Playing with Bolton’s U-21s, he collapsed to the ground, clutching his right knee after just 23 minutes.

  • The new home kits were finally revealed Monday morning. We’ll refrain from editorializing. Clint Dempsey said the team will be “hard to miss” in the all-white look. Nike has a full photo set and more info.
