U.S. national team vets coming and going
by Paul Kennedy on Sunday, Aug 30, 2015 3:57 PM EDT
U.S. men's national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann named the initial squad of 23 players who will gather for friendlies against Peru and Brazil in the final preparation before the Oct. 10 playoff game against Mexico at the Rose Bowl for a spot in the 2017 Confederations Cup. Four 2014 World Cup starters who did not play in the Gold Cup are back: Tim Howard, Geoff Cameron, Matt Besler and Jermaine Jones. But Clint Dempsey and Michael Bradley will miss the Peru game, and seven other Gold Cup starters will not be in the team for either game.

It's time for FIFA to move out of the Alps
It has occurred to me at regular intervals during the past decades that one of the problems that entangle FIFA is this: its location. Switzerland. Is that a good place to be for an organization in charge of a sport that can lay claim to being the most global activity that the world has ever known?

"The growth of football and the increased participation levels in the U.S. have been tremendous and demonstrate the nation's passion for the game. FIFA continues to work tirelessly to support the global development of the game in partnership with all of our 209 member associations."

-- Statement issued by a FIFA spokeswoman, disowning comments by Francois Carrard, the recently appointed independent chairman of FIFA's 15-person reform committee, in the Swiss newspaper La Matin Dimanche. Carrard had questioned why American authorities were investigating corruption in soccer, which he described as "just an ethnic sport for girls in schools" in the United States. (Reuters)
