MLS: U.S. Open Cup-Philadelphia Union at D.C. United Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The US Open Cup is always gives us bonkers games (usually against Philadelphia), and last night was no exception. At least this time D.C. United are moving onto the next round. To the links!

Last-gasp Wayne Rooney penalty sends D.C. United through in US Open Cup - Black And Red United: After going down late, I thought another first round exit for United was in the books. I am glad Wayne Rooney thought otherwise. We find out today at 10am who D.C. United’s next opponent will be and when that game is; it will be their next match regardless.

USA’s 13-0 romp over Thailand broken down by tactics - Stars and Stripes FC: A familiar face takes a deep dive into the tactics of the USWNT in the World Cup.

D.C. United’s 2019 shows us that...Wayne Rooney makes a lot! - Black And Red United: I am also glad to see the salary floor continue to creep up.

How MLS players react when their salaries become public: ‘I cannot tell you how much trash talking there is’ – The Athletic: There are three or four gems of stories in the piece.

There is still some Magic of the Cup alive, with poor Colorado crashing out to a USL side; St. Louis FC also remain in the tournament, and the Charleston Battery have a chance to upset Atlanta United tonight.

Seriously though, I do like that crest and their story sounds nice, so I hope DC United FC wins the City of Southampton Sunday Football League 5th division.

I’ve had this song on repeat, so now I am putting it into your brains.

That’s all I’ve got, what’s up?
