A whole bunch of stats on Saturday’s match vs PTFC. Here is a fun one of my own:

Bruce Arena says USA can win 2026 World Cup

I like it. Why not? Let’s get crazy.

If you were hoping Dom could get a USMNT call for WC Qualifiers....

It isn’t looking good. Arena says there shouldn’t be any surprises when he names the roster for the upcoming World Cup Qualifiers. Which would mean Dom Dwyer is a no go in case you were still holding out hope. I’d also think at this point Feilhaber would be a surprise after not being included last round.

Didier Drogba signs with the Phoenix Rising FC as player & co-owner

The 39 year old is convinced he can help the USL side both “on and off the pitch”. The club is quite serious in their quest for MLS expansion.

Toronto FC’s Drew Moor to be sidelined due with cardiac arrhythmia

Another strange heart condition for an MLS player. Moor is due to see a cardiologist next week and won’t practice or play in a match until then.
