Welcome to Wednesday, folks, where tonight the Vancouver Whitecaps hope to earn what FC Dallas could not last night: a trip to the CONCACAF Champions League final. It was a heartbreaking evening for MLS last night, so let’s just get right into it:
St. Louis didn’t get the votes to pass funding for the MLS stadium that is the centerpiece of their expansion bid. Is their bid now dead?
Hirving Lozano scored 2 goals, including the winner in stoppage time as Pachuca beats FC Dallas to secure their place in the CONCACAF Champions League final.
David Moyes is in deep doo-doo.
This is an incredible look at what it takes to get the equipment U.S. Soccer needs from city to city and to make sure the players don’t have to worry about anything but performing on the field. Meet the two hardest working men in the biz.
The Vancouver Whitecaps will be welcoming Tigres to BC Place with an open roof and they are really hoping the skies open up. They think it will give them the advantage needed to overcome a 2-0 deficit.
Speaking of Hirving Lozano, he wants to ply his trade in Europe. The 21-year-old is linked to clubs like Ajax, Celtic and even Manchester United. In any case, Pachuca stands to reap the financial windfall from any potential transfer.
The two teams finally played. Chapecoense beats Atletico Nacional in the first leg of the Recopa Sudamericana (Copa Sudamericana winners vs. Copa Libertadores winners). This was the matchup that was supposed to take place in the Copa Sudamericana final that was canceled after Chape’s plane crashed on the way to the match, killing 71 people and all but 6 team members. The next leg will take place in Medellin May 10.
