Happy Thursday, everyone. Before you break down the new Nike World Cup jerseys, here’s the news from yesterday:
The USMNT has a roster for friendlies this month against Japan and Saudi Arabia. No D.C. United players on the roster, but former Black-and-Red Paul Arriola is back on the squad.
There was a lot of Champions League action from yesterday, but none better than this Johan Cruyff-like wonder strike from Erling Haaland for Manchester City against his former team, Borussia Dortmund.

The new USMNT and USWNT jerseys were officially released early this morning. We all know what they looked like, so commence the official comments.
NYCFC are the Campeones Cup champions, beating Atlas 2-0 at Yankee Stadium. That’s 3 Campeones Cup wins in a row for Major League Soccer.
The new Liga F will finally begin this weekend in Spain, as referees have agreed to end their strike. The women’s league will now proceed, with defending champions FC Barcelona looking to repeat.
UEFA drops some charges on Eintracht Frankfurt and Olympique de Marseille for racist behavior and crowd disturbances. Gotta get to the bottom all that immediately and levy huge punishments.
Chelsea FC’s new owner wants to bring a bit of the All Star flair to the Premier League. I got a better idea:
- Premier League All-Stars vs. EFL Championship All-Stars. Losing players get relegated.
- GOALIE WARZ
That’s all for today!
