Klinsmann: 'This is about proving a point'
by Paul Kennedy on Monday, Aug 31, 2015 2:54 AM EDT
Photo The countdown to the Oct. 10 winner-take-all match against Mexico at the Rose Bowl began in earnest with Jurgen Klinsmann's selection of players for friendlies against Peru and Brazil. There was heavy turnover with the return of Tim Howard and Geoff Cameron, who have not played in 2015, and Matt Besler and Jermaine Jones, who have not played since February. Out for the Peru game at least are nine players who started at the 2015 Gold Cup.

Trickery, incompetence and ignorance -- the tale of a Red Bulls corner kick
So the Red Bulls got away with one against Chicago last week -- their use of a ploy to catch the Chicago defenders off guard, led directly to Ronald Zubar's goal that tied the game at 2-2.

"We're coaches, and we're all ambassadors for MLS and want the game to grow, and I thought the game was very poorly managed by the official. And he's an experienced guy, but he seemed to be sleepwalking through the game. It wasn't anything where he was biased toward one team or another, nothing unethical, I just thought he was very poor."

-- Portland coach Caleb Porter on referee Alan Kelly after the Timbers' 2-1 loss to Seattle. (MLSSoccer.com)
