Weston McKennie scores and Christian Pulisic injured: Freedom Kicks for 4 October 2018

Soccer, go!

Soccer: International Friendly Soccer-Brazil at USA Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Hello again! I am back to reclaim my birthday, the Thursday version of Freedom Kicks! I am hot and sweaty after running in the darkness (why can’t it just be 16 hours of light all year ‘round?) so let’s jump into the soccer!

D.C. United loses Oniel Fisher for the season - Black And Red United: D.C. United loses their starting right back to a whole host of knee injuries. With Nick DeLeon only recently back to full training, it looks like recent signing Kevin Ellis may be the choice for a couple of weeks.

22 Under 22 - 2018 Rankings | Chris Durkin appears on the list, as well he should; with Junior Moreno on international duty soon, Durkin may get some starts to cap his season

Weston McKennie scores a Champions League game winner - Stars and Stripes FC: McKennie is making the Bundesliga his own, and to top that puts his mark on the Champions League

Christian Pulisic suffers torn calf muscle, Dortmund announces – ProSoccerTalk: Elsewhere in the Bundesliga though, it looks like Pulisic will be out for some time. At least there aren’t any meaningful USMNT games nearby, so silver lining?

More soccer on TV is always a good thing, and the USL is a pretty good league.

That’s all I have this morning; happy Thursday!
