Wayne Rooney, USMNT goalkeepers, and more: Freedom Kicks for 5/15/18

Plus: a wild Bob Bradley appears.

Whaddup, folks. Let us take a moment to mourn the fact that all the rainy weather this week is perfect for staying inside and reading and Netflix-ing, but instead I have to go to work and do work things. Please feel free to commiserate with me in the comments if you are in a similarly dismaying situation.

But rain or shine, Freedom Kicks is here and soccer rolls on. To the links!
