The U.S. Men's National Team begins its road to Russia 2018 with its first friendly next week, and head coach Jurgen Klinsmann is wasting no time in trying to identifytalent in the pipeline that could potentially help along the way.
Jurgen Klinsmann and US Soccer announced the 22-man squad for the upcoming friendly against the Czech Republic in Prague.

For all the international games played in New York this summer, it was nice to have one that actually counted toward something larger.

The English club announced Thursday that they had parted ways with the formerMLSforward by mutual consent, ending astint that began in September 2013. The 29-year-old Kamara made 24 appearances for the club and scored four goals.
What a superb bit of business this is by Premier League new-boys. Signing a player of Esteban Cambiasso's calibre is quite the coup with the 34-year-old joining the Foxes on a free in a one-year-deal.
From Independiente to River Plate and Real Madrid to Internazionale, Cambiasso proved to be one of the best midfielders of his generation, with his mix of tough-tackling and sublime technique winning him the Champions League in 2010 with Jose Mourinho's Inter side as well as a whole host of other trophies.

John Brooks has not played in a competitive game since scoring the dramatic winner in the U.S. Men's National Team's World Cup opener vs. Ghana, but an injury to one of his club teammates may change that.
Brooks is poised to earn his first start of the season for Hertha Berlin after Sebastian Langkamp was ruled out for up to a month earlier this week.
Frank Yallop didn't hide his disappointment with losing Jermaine Jones to the New England Revolution but remained politically correct and avoided any direct criticism of the the league and the dubious circumstances that led to the now infamous "blind draw".

The Welsh Premier League started in 1992-93, with Cwmbran winning the title. The format changed in 2010-11, when 18 teams became 12 The Super 12, as they're dubbed.

When it comes to managers, Crystal Palace certainly keep them coming back for more...
"Just when I thought I was out... they pull me back in."
