USA dominates our Women's World Cup Best XI

The USA's depth of talent carried it to its third Women's World Cup title. Seven Americans figure in our Women's World Cup Best XI, and the four other starters in the final all had outstanding tournaments.

Our MLS Best of June awards

Tony DiCicco: If USA's scoring comes around, it will not be stopped

The last time the USA won a Women's World Cup came in 1999 when Tony DiCicco served as head coach. DiCicco, who also guided the USA to the 1996 Olympic gold medal and the 2008 U-20 World Cup, is in Canada as a Fox television commentator. We asked him for his insight on the tournament so far.


Dempsey case: Lessons from the tussle in Tukwila

In a perfect world, Clint Dempsey would not have been playing on Tuesday. Nor would have Obafemi Martins. The Seattle Sounders will play three MLS games in the next week, so it probably made no sense to use Dempsey and Martins in an Open Cup game, but the Sounders did and they paid the price.
