Moses Nyeman, Kevin Paredes, and the USWNT at the Olympics: Freedom Kicks for 29 July 2021

Soccer, go!

MLS: D.C. United at Philadelphia Union Mitchell Leff-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning! We’re in the fill flow of the Olympics, with medals been won right and left. I hope you’ve been able to watch a little bit of something that isn’t one of the marquee sports. We watched some badminton, and it was so fast and the only thing that kept the attention of my 4 year old daughter.

Now an American citizen, DC United’s Nyeman holds USMNT ambitions

Both Moses Nyeman and Kevin Paredes are going to be stars for a long time to come. We’ll get to say we saw them when, and know that they will inspire the next generations of soccer talent in the DMV.

Best XI of MLS players who would help the USMNT’s 2021 Gold Cup team

Kevin Paredes gets a big honorable mention in the piece, and Bill Hamid gets in there as well. It is nice to see D.C. United players other than Paul Arriola start to get more recognition (and Bill deserved to be back with the team a while ago, but alas).

That is a lot of people to watch a soccer match at 7:30am Eastern!

Developing the next generation of D.C. United players!

That’s all I have this morning. What’s up?
