I mentioned the other day there may be a Swiss side also showing interest in Freddy Adu. Well, there is and it's fourth place finishers FC Luzern (who, yes, hold a Europa League qualifying invite).

Julian Green's long-awaited arrival to the United States men's national team is here. Green made his debut in a friendly against Mexico on Tuesday night when he came on in the 60th minute. His performance wasn't great or awful, but certainly left something to be desired. Green missed on a couple passes into the midfield, and his slip and fall is what eventually led to Mexico's second goal.
