One of our very own MLS stars, Landon Donovan, will take the field tonight to represent his country for the final time.  Donovan will end his USMNT career in an international-friendly against Ecuador.  Fans from all over the country are in East Hartford, Connecticut to cheer on the nation’s all-time leading goal scorer.  In MLS news, the Columbus Crew unveiled a new brand identity this Wednesday that will launch in 2015.  In the New Year, the Crew will officially be known as Columbus Crew Soccer Club.  Another exciting weekend of soccer is upon us as New England Revolution, Sporting Kansas City, Real Salt Lake, and FC Dallas all attempt to clinch a playoff berth.  Before you cheer on your favorite squad, take a look at how they’ve made a difference in the community.

The total number of probable, confirmed and suspected cases of Ebola in Sierra Leone, Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria and now Senegal was 6,263 with 2,917 deaths, as of September 21, according to the World Health Organization.  The number of deaths linked to Ebola in West Africa continues to rise and is spreading at an unprecedented rate.  The Center for Disease Control estimates that the number of Ebola cases in Liberia and Sierra Leone could rise to between 550,000 and 1.4 million by January without further intervention.

This is a world-wide emergency that requires a world-wide response.

Another weekend of matches is here with top teams from both conferences battling for three points.  This weekend, FC Dallas hosts Real Salt Lake in a match that’ll surely keep you on the edge of your seat.  Undefeated in its last nine matches, FC Dallas trails Western Conference leader, RSL, by only three-points.  Over in the Eastern Conference, leader of the pack, Sporting Kansas City takes on second place, D.C. United who attempt to keep their momentum alive after a 4-2 win last week.  With so many awesome matchups this weekend, it’s going to be hard to focus on anything but soccer.  Before tuning in, make sure you check out how your clubs are making a difference in their respective communities.
