Saturday morning: What's in the news ...

1. There are two candidates entered so far in U.S. Soccer's vice presidential race: incumbent Cindy Parlow Cone and John Motta, the U.S. Adult chairman. Parlow Cone, a Hall of Famer, was elected in 2019 to fill the last year of current president and former vice president Carlos Cordeiro's term. Motta was elected vice president in 1998, defeating Sunil Gulati, and served until 2000 when he lost to Gulati. The deadline for candidates is Dec. 17. The election will take place at the 2020 Annual General Meeting Feb. 17 in Nashville.

2. Josh Sargent will be out until January with a hamstring injury. Werder Bremen announced the setback for the 19-year-old American, who suffered the injury in the USA's 4-0 victory over Cuba in the Concacaf Nations League during which he scored two goals. He continued to play for  Werder Bremen after returning to Germany. "Since this is a small, deep-set muscle," said Bremen head coach Florian Kohfeldt, "the problems only occur at certain, very specific loads, which is why he was able to play and train for so long with problems."

3. The New York Red Bulls have transferred Panamanian international Michael Amir Murillo to Anderlecht of the Belgian First Division. Murillo, 23, departs after three seasons with the Red Bulls. Murillo played 62 matches, finishing with four goals and 10 assists. He was named an MLS All-Star in 2018 and was named the Red Bulls' Newcomer of the Year in 2017.
