For the better part of five years, Dax McCarty called Red Bull Arena home. He made the midfield his own as he helped lead the Red Bulls to unprecedented success. He long held down the corner locker, helping build a nucleus that would lead the Red Bulls to the club's most successful run.

On Saturday, for the first time since thecontroversial offseason trade that sent him to the Chicago Fire, Dax McCarty will return to Red Bull Arena, and New York Red Bulls head coach Jesse Marsch is very much looking forward to it.

He's not looking forward to the prospect of going head-to-head against his former player or proving his team is better off without him.

Miazga shakes off preseason rust by scoring first USMNT goal

U.S. Men's National Team defender Matt Miazga was happy to get back on the pitch.

"The goal was a little added bonus," he chuckled after Saturday's 3-0 win over Nicaragua.

It was Miazga's first game action in over two months and he was eager to shake off the rust. He was admittedly in "preseason mode," but he certainly helped out by scoring the goal that put the USMNT on top of Group B and into the Gold Cup quarterfinals with a favorable matchup against El Salvador.

There were a number of reasons the U.S. Men's National Team didn't look its best against Panama on Saturday, and there were a number of factors that prevented the UMSNT from earning more than a point from Saturday's Gold Cup opener.

Performances, both individual and collective, were poor, and the USMNT's inability to win the battle in the central midfield was what doomed them on Saturday afternoon.

McCarty, the wily MLS veteran enjoying the form of his life, and Acosta, who many are starting to believe is the heir apparent to Michael Bradley and Jermaine Jones, paired well together on Saturday in the USMNT's 2-1 win over Ghana.

There are times in a soccer match when scoring a goal can destroy the motivation for an opponent to mount a comeback. The New England Revolution were that team on Saturday shortly after Luis Solignac put the visiting Fire 2:0 up in the 61st minute. It was the kind of authoritative strike that resulted in the Revs looking like they were ready to pack it in.

Both the Chicago Fire and Columbus Crew come into 2017 looking to turn a page and forget about their respective dismal 2016 campaigns. They squared off on Saturday at MAPFRE Stadium in the season opener on a chilly afternoon and battled to a 1:1 draw. Based on the soccer on display it's unlikely that either side learned much about whether 2017 will bring more joy than 2016 did, but both teams have a lot of work ahead if they want to be competitive.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. In the mind of Red Bulls coach Jesse Marsch, there's an unwritten code that all soccer players are supposed to follow. And part of that code is to kick the ball out of play when an opposing player is down due to injury.

So when he saw center back Kemar Lawrence was on the ground after feeling a pop in his knee, Marsch expected the Revolution, who were in possession, to hit the pause button on their advance.
