  • What They're Saying: Samuel Piette

    "It's been a long time that we [have] played a competitive game [against the U.S.], that means so much for all the players, for the association, but even for the fans. The hate that we have toward the Americans is just natural - even if you don't like soccer or anything."

    -- Canadian national team midfielder Samuel Piette on Tuesday's Concacaf Nations League match between Canada and the USA in Toronto, the first competitive match since the 2011 Gold Cup when the USA won, 2-0. Canada has not beaten the USA in a competitive match since a 2-1 win in World Cup qualifying in 1980. (Sporting News)

  • Youth Movement: Americans to Europe

    1. U.S. U-20 defender Travian Sousa was promoted to German second division leader Hamburg's first team and debuted in a 2-2 tie with Eintracht Braunschweig in a friendly match. Sousa, 18, moved to Hamburg from Sacramento Republic FC this summer and has been playing for the U-19s and U-23s. He was one of three players who left the USL club's academy program for teams in Europe.

    2. Joshua Pynadath, 17, made his first appearance for Ajax's first team in a 1-0 win over Heerenveen in a friendly played during the FIFA window. Pynadath, who has played two games for Jong Ajax, came on as a sub for Ajax, which called up players from its second team to fill out the squad because regulars were away on international duty. He was eligible for the 2019 U.S. U-17 World Cup team with which he last trained in April.

    3. Floridian Nicolas Defreitas-Hansen, who played for the U.S. U-16s and U-17s, debuted for Denmark in its 1-0 win at Ireland in an under-19 friendly played in Sligo. He joined Everton's academy from Weston FC in 2017 and signed a two-year pro contract in July.
