ASN Morning Read: Who Wants to Go to Sarajevo?
The names of the players headed to the United States match next week are trickling out. The Seattle Sounders should have two men on the team, but one star won't be going. Click click click.
Grant Wahl reports Clint Dempsey won't be on the roster for Wednesday's friendly in Sarajevo against Bosnia-Herzegovina. We're also under the impression that his Sounders teammates Eddie Johnson and Brad Evans will be in the squad.
Here's what we're looking at so far:
The Washington Post reports D.C. United will trade Charlie Davies' MLS rights to the New England Revolution. Danish club Randers owns Davies' contract, so he'd be on loan to the Revolution once returning to the U.S. The 27-year-old wasn't in Randers' Europa League squad yesterday against Rubin Kazan after being included in the first leg of the third qualifying round. Take that for what it's worth. This could be another sign that Juan Agudelo's time with the Revolution is nearing its end.
Tim Howard says Jozy Altidore will be the United States' "moneymaker" heading into the World Cup next summer. Howard also opined on Altidore's move to Sunderland. “He'll do well in the Premier League,” Howard said. “He's a big boy, he's got good pace, he likes to get in front of the goal and finish. And he's strong enough, particularly in the Premier League, to hold balls up and bring the team into play.”
Terrence Boyd and Rapid Vienna advanced in the Europa League with a 3-1 win over Greek side Asteras Tripolis. Vienna will take on Dila Gori of Georgia in the playoff round. Brad Friedel and Tottenham were drawn against a Georgian opponent, Dinamo Tbilisi.
Omar Gonzalez went flyboarding. It looks awesome.
