STORY OF THE DAY!
Rubin likes FC Utrecht's ambitions
by Paul Kennedy on Wednesday, Jul 30, 2014 3:37 PM EDT
[AMERICANS ABROAD] Rubio Rubin had to wait until he turned 18 in March to be eligible to sign with FC Utrecht. Then he had to wait until the opening of the summer transfer window on July 1. Now, a mild concussion and broken nose suffered last weekend has set him back, but the young American forward does finally have a contract: a four-year contract with the Dutch Eredivisie club. He is the fifth player from his 2013 U-17 national team class to sign with a foreign club.

KC's Aurelien Collin -- the great escape artist
Some seven months ago, writing on the day before the 2013 MLS Cup final between Real Salt Lake and Kansas City, I commented that KC defender Aurelien Collin "... is physical to the point of recklessness and seems to lead a charmed life right on the edge of red-card territory."

"It was very strange, with the way [Brazil] walked out on the field and just their emotional level, you could feel it and it was different from the other matches they played. When Germany started dominating the game the way they did and putting in the goals, the benches actually were very calm. The crowd was not an issue, and the players, to Brazil's credit, didn't lash out against Germany. They finished the game."

-- U.S. referee Mark Geiger, recalling his 2014 World Cup experience that included working in the middle for three games and serving as the fourth official for Brazil-Germany. (SI.com)
