1. U.S. men’s national team head coach Gregg Berhalter issued
a personal letter
to the American Outlaws, the main supporters’ group, apologizing for failing to thank the traveling
fans after the 2-0 loss to Canada in Toronto in the Concacaf Nations League two weeks ago. He said he had no excuses and he "screwed up." 2. Hartford Athletic agreed to part ways with head coach Jimmy Nielsen
after one season. The first-year Athletic finished 17th out of 18 teams in USL Championship’s
Eastern Conference with a 8-21-5 record. Nielsen helped Sporting Kansas City win MLS Cup 2013 and then took up coaching, spending four seasons (2014-17) as the head coach of OKC Energy FC. 3. Konrad de la Fuente scored two more goals for Barcelona's U-19s in a 6-0 win
over Ebro in Spain's Division de Honor Juvenil.
The U.S. U-20 winger also scored two goals for Barcelona last week in its 4-0 win at Slavia Prague in the UEFA Youth League.
