  • "U.S. Soccer has suspended goalkeeper Hope Solo from the U.S. Women’s National Team for six months for conduct that is counter to the organization’s principles. The suspension for Solo, who was previously suspended for 30 days early in 2015 for her conduct, is effective immediately."

  • DeAndre Yedlin goes to Newcastle, ruining my fantasy EPL season: "Newcastle United have completed the signing of United States international DeAndre Yedlin from Tottenham Hotspur for an undisclosed fee. Yedlin, who spent last season on loan at Newcastle's arch-rivals Sunderland, has signed a five-year contract with the Championship club. The transfer fee for the right-back, who has made 39 appearances for United States, is reported to be £5 million ($6.6m), according to multiple sources."
  • Jozy Altidore scores. Again. 

  • Ending on a good note:
