Sometime in the next 10 days, Jurgen Klinsmann will name the team he’s taking into next month's start of CONCACAF qualifying for the 2014 World Cup. So now, in order to take my mind off the fact that I still haven’t seen The Avengers yet, let’s take a stab at predicting his roster.
Jamaica toughed out a 0-0 draw with Costa Rica in an international friendly on Wednesday night in Kingston despite Jermaine Taylor's 37th-minute ejection.
The Houston Dynamo defender (pictured above), sporting the armband for the Reggae Boyz, was cautioned twice in as many minutes and was duly given his marching orders. But his side ground out the result after a constant barrage of pressure from the Costa Ricans, who couldn’t make the one-man advantage count.
Columbus Crew no jugó un partido oficial este fin de semana, pero eso no detuvo al chileno Milovan Mirosevic, quien anotó un golazo de tiro libre en un partido de exhibición ante el equipo universitario Michigan State.

GENOA, Italy — The aftermath of the US men's national team's first-ever win over Italy on Wednesday is proving almost as fun as the event, and most of the report cards reflect that.
It looked as though Azzurri ace Andrea Pirlo was getting around to giving the home side's "B+" side the lead, but the visitors made sure that never happened. The Yanks played confidently enough in their own right to allow red, white and blue-hot Clint Dempsey to fire up the victory celebration.
It was a boldface lie. Ferrell has turned around and shot a film entirely in Spanish … So what better place than Mexico vs. Colombia to promote the flick alongside stunning actress Genesis Rodriguez? With Ferrell’s attendance at a Mexican national team match, we put his Spanish and his loyalty to the US colors to the test.

Do you know what I love more than ice cream and Sacha Kljestan's moustache? Eric Wynalda talking US Soccer.
LIMASSOL, Cyprus — Though ending up on the losing end of a 3-1 loss to Armenia was hardly what the Canadian national team was looking for, they managed to find a few silver linings in the game.
