The New England Revolution tweeted and later reported in their weekly update that Juan Toja
joined the Revolution for his first training session since signing with the squad a couple weeks
ago. The former MLS All-Star arrived in the States on Sunday and it looks like promising for him to
be available on Saturday against D.
Add a lack of communication to the growing list of problems that the Revs are having in this
second half of the season. Tonight's match was perhaps most indicative of that, as the Revolution
strayed and mist-timed pass after pass, ultimately leading to their own demise at the hands of the
visiting Montreal Impact.
Virginia Men's Soccer Falls 2-1 in Overtime to Georgetown Carroll scores goal for
GERMANTOWN, Md. â The Virginia men's soccer team opened its regular-season schedule with a tough
2-1 overtime loss to Georgetown Friday evening in the ACC/BIG EAST Challenge at the Maryland
SoccerPlex in Germantown, Md.
My apologies for the delay. Last night was taken up by watch the best action-adventure movie of
all time in IMAX, Raiders of the Lost Ark.
A surprisingly young team started against the Timbers on Wednesday night. Casey was given the night
off, Cummings was with Jamaica, and Mullan was given a chance to rest for most of the game after
his Achilles injury in Portland.
The Portland Timbers once again go to Colorado and get absolutely pasted. The Colorado Rapids
did everything they were supposed to do and wanted to do, meanwhile the Timbers looked listless on
offense and some of the defenders looked clueless. 3-0 loss and back into the cellar.
Jonjo Shelvey scored one and set up another as England moved within touching distance of the UEFA
Under-21 Championship play-offs with a 2-0 victory in Azerbaijan.
Liverpool midfielder Shelvey's first goal for the Young Lions followed Steven Caulker's third to
send Stuart Pearce's men five points clear at the top of qualifying Group Eight with one match
Carlos Tevez pounced on a Martin Skrtel mistake to continue his Manchester City rehabilitation by
snatching a 2-2 draw for the champions at Liverpool.

FC Dallas is starting to think about a playoff push, something that would have been unthinkable
a month ago, before a dynamic Colombian duo stepped forward to revive a struggling Dallas
The Colombian connection of David Ferreira and Fabian Castillo have been the leading drivers of
an FC Dallas resurgence, and they were at it again on Wednesday night in Vancouver, manufacturing
both goals as FC Dallas posted an impressive 2-0 victory against the Vancouver Whitecaps in
David Junior Lopes has developed a knack lately for scoring against big time European clubs.
A little more than a week after scoring an equalizer against Tottenham Hotspur, the 6-4 Center
Back was at it again against Spanish power Real Madrid on Thursday. This time, Lopes cashed in a
goal off a David Beckham set piece in the 24rd minute, but even that was not enough to prevent
Madrid from once again outclassing the Galaxy for a third straight year courtesy of a 5-1 win over
LA at the Home Depot Center.
The current U.S. squad had two players find the back of the net for their club teams this weekend,
bringing a little extra zip in their step heading into training camp.
Jermaine Jones scored the game-winner for Schalke when he finished off a mazy run with a rifle to
the far post, the hosts running out 3-1 winners against Augsburg.
1. Southampton had lost their opening two games of the season but had taken the lead twice
against City at the Etihad, so they're not total mugs. They took the lead twice against us too but
this game was at their place. Despite an impressive opening ten minutes, with United playing some
great football, we just didn't get to grips with the game.
Town's first 3 points of the season are an absolute relief.
When the fixture list came out in June there was a real consideration that we may not pick up any
points for the first 3 games of the season.
I hoped for a draw against Blackburn, but did not expect it, and I fully envisaged us coming home
from Watford empty handed: how could we dare to think about anything else against the 'bogey team'!
The dust is now just beginning to settle for the first ever victory by the USA in Mexico. And
the win came in no other place than Aztec Stadium, notorious for tormenting the USMNT over the
years. Although the Americans didn't play what you would call a beautiful soccer game, they played
with grit, determination, and hard work.
Winning isn't always pretty, good teams find a way to take care of business. Yesterday at
Livestrong Sporting Park, KC didn't have the greatest game, but were able to over come that and
beat Toronto FC 2-1. The blue print for shutting down KC almost played out to perfection for TFC,
without Torsten Frings and Eric Hassli in the lineup, TFC was able to hold their own, but in the
end KC had just too much possession and too many chances and finally found the net.
No matter all the differences, the end result is the same. For all of Liverpool's good play, clever
tactics, and growing into Rodgers' passing system, it's another season where another two points are
dropped at home despite being the far better side because of self-inflicted errors.
Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao scored a hat trick Monday as his team thrashed Athletic
Bilbao 4-0 in the teams' first meeting since the Europa League final last season.
Falcao scored twice in the 3-0 victory in Romania in May and could have scored more at the
Vicente Calderon as Bilbao continued to struggle without Spain internationals Fernando Llorente and
Javi Martinez, who were omitted from the squad again with their futures at the Basque club

There's clutch, and then there's what Terrence Boyd did for Rapid Vienna on Thursday.
Down a goal on aggregate and facing elimination in the third qualifying round of the Europa
League, Boyd came up big for Rapid Vienna in second-half stoppage time by drawing a penalty kick
that a teammate converted and then scoring an insurance goal to give the Green-Whites a 2-0 win and
3-2 aggregate victory over Serbian outfit Vojvodina.
Alex Morgan scored seconds before the end of extra time to send the U.S. to the 2012 Olympic
Gold Medal with a 4-3 win over Canada.
The U.S. fought back from three deficits and overcame a historic hat-trick from legendary
Canadian striker Christine Sinclair to grab a 4-3 win over Canada on Alex Morgan's 123rd minute
extra time stunner in Olympic soccer semifinal action at Old Trafford in Manchester, England on
It was a vintage 2011 performance by the Los Angeles Galaxy Sunday against FC Dallas.
The Galaxy backline was the catalyst Sunday in its important MLS matchup against Dallas, making
life tough for the visiting side while waiting for scoring chances that eventually came in the
second half courtesy of Juninho and Todd Dunivant, which paved the way for a 2-0 win over FC Dallas
at the Home Depot Center.
Seattle Sounders FC failed to generate many chances in the run of play in their loss to Sporting
Kansas City. This wasn't because of poor form, or a lack of confidence. It was because of how
There were three basic elements to what KC did that are most notable. First, was the high
pressure from the three forwards (yes, Graham Zusi was a forward on the night).
What a start to the season by Southampton as for the first five minutes they laid siege to Joe
Hart's goal. This was achieved by up to seven(!) players from the away team pressing the City back
line very high up the pitch. Is this Chievo Verona we're watching?
The first significant foray by City into Southampton's half led to an injury sustained by Kun
Aguero from ex-Crystal Palace Nathaniel Clyne's (clean) tackle.
Steve Zakuani is not quite ready to reclaim his spot as the Seattle Sounders' starting left
midfielder, but on Sunday he showed that he's getting close. Zakuani scored a pair of goals in a
Reserve League game, the first he's scored in any match since breaking his leg last May, as the
Sounders beat the LA Galaxy 3-2.
The U.S. women's national team's hopes for another Olympic gold medal are still alive, and so is
its shutout streak.
Abby Wambach scored in the first half, and substitute Sydney LeRoux ended all doubt with a late
clincher, as the U.S. women held off New Zealand 2-0 and advanced to the semifinals of the Olympic
tournament at St.
MISSED OPPORTUNITIES After the rains came down like a monsoon two hours before, sky's
blued and the weather was perfect-if not a little sticky for kickoff. And that's how it started for
the Fire. In the fourth, what turned out to be the best chance at goal in the first half was
squandered by the hesitation of new signing ĂlvaroFernandez.
If the traffic and the crammed parking on the way into the AC Milan vs. Olimpia match at
Gillette Stadium was any indication, the Razor should have been rocking and loud as a tremendously
entertaining match between two heavyweights of their domestic leagues ensued. Only half of that
came to pass; the match was entertaining but the crowd was unusually sparse as Milan dusted up the
Honduran champs 3-1 behind masterful goals and creative play from Robinho and Antonio Nocerino.
