The USA's 3-2 loss at Denmark on Wednesday gives Coach Jurgen Klinsmann's team a post-2014 World Cup record of 2-4-2 (win-loss-tie). But despite Denmark's dominance and another late-game collapse,
Klinsmann said he saw "a lot of positives" from his team.
Why are England's clubs so barely English? With the inglorious exit of Everton -- bounced out of the Europa League by a 5-2 mauling from Dynamo Kiev -- the participation of English clubs in this season's European competition has come to an
abrupt and really rather shocking halt.
WHAT THEY'RE SAYING
"It was the first time in my life that I had not made a team, that I had not been chosen. I finally had compassion for people that didn't get everything all the time and that is much, much, much
more valuable than having gone to Brazil and playing in a World Cup."

speaking at Harvard's Romance Studies 109 class, "The Global Game: Soccer, Politics, and Popular Culture," so popular that teachers had to switch classrooms twice to accommodate the more than 100
students who signed up. (Harvard Gazette)
