USMNT Gold Cup, USWNT sendoff win & more: Freedom Kicks for 7/2/21

Oh, and a rumor is created, by me.

MLS: D.C. United Training Douglas DeFelice-USA TODAY Sports

Hi there, I’m filling in for Jason, who’s driving from the Leesburg of Maryland into the Leesburg of Virginia for tonight’s Spirit game, between that, the USWNT, D.C. United pressers, he’s a bit busy and will return.

USMNT 2021 Gold Cup roster includes D.C. United duo Paul Arriola, Donovan Pines (us): Good for them.

SSFC Community Corner: Who were the snubs from the Gold Cup roster? (SSFC): Donald with a big ol’ Bill Hamid-sized hole in this squad.

United States 4, México 0 (FMF State of Mind): The USWNT did part of what they needed to do.

National Women’s Soccer League Initiates Brand Refresh Process to Culminate With Its 10th Anniversary Season (NWSL): With Angel City’s unveiling, I feel like the League has to up the bar already, as they should.

Meanwhile, this has got a bit of Spirit!

D.C. United to Honor Payne and Moreno at Halftime of Toronto FC Match (DCU): Given that + a tribute to Big Rob, get there early.

USL Statement on Foul and Abusive Language Incident (USL): The USL can find bottle throwers, but not people hurling epithets at Loudoun United players I guess.

Côte d’Ivoire : Messi fait rêver l’ASEC Mimosas (Bein): So apparently Lionel Messi is a free agent, and the Ivory Coast team ASEC Mimosas has made a satirical play for him. So in theory, Loudoun United fullback Gaoussou Samake will either rejoin his parent club to play with him, or quite logically, Messi to Loudoun on loan is a done deal.

Anyway, I’ll be spreading this word at Segra Sunday, so there that is.
