New England have been busy this week, playing Chinese outfit Shanghai Shenhua to a 0-0 draw on Thursday and signing Spanish playmaker Carles Gil on Wednesday.

New England will also scrimmage Russia's FC Krasnodar and Ukrainian heavyweights Dynamo Kyiv in the days ahead.

FC Viktoria Plzen

The Czech champions are gearing up for the second half of their season. They sit in second place in the Czech first division, four points behind Slavia Prague, and they are gearing up for their Europa League Round of 16 clash against Dinamo Zagreb next month.

The vast majority of their roster is from the Czech Republic or Slovakia, but one former MLS player who recently lined up for Viktoria is Andreas Ivanschitz, who departed the Seattle Sounders in 2016 for Viktoria, where he played through last year.
