It seems hard to believe but FCD will be back in action tomorrow night. But until then we have some news to share with you on this first World Cup-less day in a couple weeks.
// FC Dallas //
The big watch party for tomorrow's FCD game will be in this cool North Dallas pub.
Again, 5,000 folks show up for a big World Cup watch party. Love hearing this type of thing in Dallas.
// MLS //
The veteran USMNT defender was spotted training in DC this week, but is he sticking around? It wouldn't be a bad thing for him to finally come home.
// World Cup //
Belgium brings a lot to the table but they are beatable.
Sometimes you need a little luck and yesterday the United States got just that.
Three of four CONCACAF teams advance. That isn't bad at all considering the groups the four teams were in to being with. Europe got a truck load of teams in the tournament but only saw six advance. Asia had four teams in the tournament, and none advanced. Africa only had two of their five. I think going into the next World Cup, CONCACAF needs to lobby hard for four full spots. Not three and a half.
Like I said yesterday, it wasn't always pretty but it worked in the end.
His latest bite will cost him the rest of this World Cup, some BPL and Champions League matches later this year. It probably costed his club Liverpool even more.
