Canadian national team ends 2014 with "a step in the right direction" thanks to draw in Panama

"A step in the right direction" as Canada close out 2014 with strong 2nd half

For Canada, a win in Panama City would have been nice – but a draw is still a step in the right direction.

“You look at it as one point on the road in Central America,” veteran midfielder Julian de Guzman said after Tuesday night’s 0-0 draw against Panama. “In a World Cup qualifier, that’s worth more than one point.”

Out-of-contract USMNT goalscorer Mix Diskerud "open" to potential move to MLS in 2015

"All options open" with Diskerud in form, out of contract
Special to MLSsoccer.com

DUBLIN – Attention, MLS teams: Mix Diskerud is open to offers. Even better news for fans yearning to see him move to the US, he is available right now.

Twice in the last couple of years, the Norwegian-born midfielder has reportedly come close to joining MLS: first with Portland Timbers in 2012, then with the Columbus Crew earlier this year.

DUBLIN – If there was one USMNT player who could find something to smile about following Tuesday's friendly loss to the Republic of Ireland, it was debutant Jordan Morris, a college player with Stanford University and a product of the Seattle Sounders Academy system.

There were bright spots for the US national team during their final match of 2014, but Jurgen Klinsmann's highly experimental side eventually suffered in Tuesday evening's 4-1 friendly loss to Ireland in Dublin.

The mistakes were numerous, especially on the defensive side of the ball and in the team approach. With some players out of optimum position and the tactics never adjusting to the opponent, the Nats above all looked disorganized in deservedly conceding four goals for the first time in 33 games.

USMNT head coach Jurgen Klinsmann again calls for team to be "nastier" following heavy loss to Ireland

Same Refrain: Klinsmann calls for "nastier" USMNT
Special to MLSsoccer.com

DUBLIN – The last time the US men's national team suffered a 4-1 loss, against Brazil in May 2012, head coach Jurgen Klinsmann flared his nostrils in the post-game press conference and demanded his team get "nastier."

A largely lifeless performance in the USMNT's latest 4-1 friendly defeat to the Republic of Ireland in Dublin’s Aviva Stadium on Tuesday led to a similar refrain.

The last time the US national team lost by three or more goals was in May of 2012. That was against Brazil, who were ranked sixth at the time.
