The USMNT will be taking on the Czech Republic today at 1:15p on NBCSN. Ahead of the match, Jurgen Klinsmann spoke on World Cup, Donovan, Julian Green, and MLS.

American International Julian Green has been loaned to Hamburg for the season and MLSSoccer.com breaks down what it means for the youngster. FINALLY we will get to see him play consistently!

The summer transfer window has closed, but not without some fireworks, Soccerly.com takes a look at the obscene numbers. The BPL spent the most of any league at $1.4 billion. Manchester United spent the most of any club in the world at $254 million followed by Spanish giants Barcelona at $206 million. Possible vampire Luis Suarez was the highest transfer at $106.3 million to Barcelona, while Columbian youngster James Rodriquez to Real Madrid was close behind at $105 million.

San Antonio is showing just how much they want an MLS team. Toyota Field, home of the San Antonio Scorpions, will undergo a $45 million expansion and see 10,000 seats added.

Well Kei Kamara may have split ways with Middlesbrough, but Sporting Kansas City are forced to play waiting game on his future.

With yet another soccer championship for the city from FCKC, MLSSoccer.com is actually polling to decide who is Soccer City USA (KC is winning with over half the vote). While yes, KC is at the top of everything soccer in the nation from culture to products on the fields, but Portland was named Soccer City many years ago. Hard to take that nickname away from them. It is a poorly phrased question because KC has actually just been repping "Soccer Capital of America" which is better anyway!

MLSSoccer.com puts the odds of SKC winning the Supporter's Shield at a measly 5%... while DC is at 20% and Seattle is at 30%.

Midfielder Jimmy Medranda has been recalled from his loan to OKC.

Sporting KC take to the road this week looking  to rebound after falling from first place following two straight losses. NE will be showing off their shiny new DP in Jermaine Jones while Sporting may be dusting off their old DP in Claudio Bieler. Following three straight wins, The Revs hope to avoid complacency.

Look.. I know how you have felt the last couple weeks...
