2022 FIFA World Cup Draw Results: USMNT draws England, Iran, and To-be-determined (SSFC): Group of Unknowns doesn’t have the same ring to it I think. WaPo with more.

Loudoun United defense cracks in 2-0 loss to Pittsburgh (us): If you’re allowing a brace to a second-half sub who happens to be the League’s all-time goal scorer, then it wasn’t a bad performance compared to past ones against the same team. USL Tactics also has a nice peek at would a couple of Loudoun players are doing and provides a power rankings of his own that are worth perusing.
