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.
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?
ESPN2 has finalized plans to show USL Cup on Nov. 8— Steven Goff (@SoccerInsider) October 3, 2018
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!
