Crazy to think we have just one more day until the start of the World Cup. But first FC Dallas is back on the road tonight.

Span happy to be back with FCD | Soccerly

What a week it has been for the young striker. Two goals over the weekend, followed by being named the USL PRO player of the week and then he gets a call from FCD and Oscar Pareja to come back to Frisco. Oh and he made the flight to Portland too. We'll know more soon enough as to whether or not his loan is over for good or if FCD will send him back.

Philly CEO on the firing of John Hackworth | MLSSoccer.com

First coach to get canned this season ends up being John Hackworth. Can't say I am shocked at all by the timing of this or by this in general. Now the questions will come; who will replace him and will this team be able to respond well enough for a playoff push?

Plenty of good matchups in the next round, including that New York Cosmos against the New York Red Bulls game.

Orlando City releases stadium renderings | SBNation.com

I have to say this is a nice looking little stadium with room to grow according to the club. Also that Lion statue walking into the stadium is pretty rad.

Torres to stay with Chivas | The Goat Parade

Good to see Chivas keep Erick Torres for the rest of the season. That team is bad but they'd be even worse without him.

Ronaldo looks fit | SBNation.com

I always knew Cristiano Ronaldo would end up being fit for the World Cup, even after all the talk these past few weeks that he was banged up.

Interesting to see that there wasn't a true consensus about who would win.
