  • Youth National Teams: U-17s Donovan visits Germany; Yi returns to training
    U.S. U-17 scoring sensation Landon Donovan returned last week from a trip to Germany where he finalized the initial set-up process and met with Bayer Leverkusen club officials about his arrival to the club this summer. While in Germany, Donovan had the opportunity to watch U.S. World Cup star Frankie Hejduk start for Bayer Leverkusen and had a chance after the game to sit down and chat with Hejduk. "Frankie is a great guy," said Donovan. "We talked about what it is like to live in Germany and play for Bayer Leverkusen. He told me that it will be one ...
  • MEN'S COLLEGE: Maryland's Cirovski strikes it rich again
    It would be hard to top a freshman class that featured three starters on the U.S. team that just returned from the World Youth Championship, but Maryland may have come close. Once again, head coach Sasho Cirovski has put together a recruiting class that is the envy of most programs around the country. The Terrapins reached the final four last fall with four players who made the Soccer America All-Freshman team: Taylor Twellman, Dan Califf and Nick Downing, who all started every match for the United States at the U-20 World Cup in Nigeria, and Beckett Hollenbach. Among the players ...
  • U.S. Women: Stoppage-time goal lifts China over USA
    The U.S. women's national team saw its 50-game domestic unbeaten streak come to an end, giving up a goal two minutes into stoppage time to lose to China, 2-1, at Giants Stadium in front of 23,765 fans. In an ironic twist, the match reversed the score of last Thursday's meeting between the two teams in Hershey, Pa., when Tisha Venturini scored two minutes into stoppage time to give the USA the 2-1 victory. After tying the score at 1-1 in the 58th minute on a fine individual effort from Julie Foudy, the USA pushed forward to the end for a ...

  • Q&A with the SA Editors: April 24, 1999
    Glenn Auve Arlington, Va. I am greatly disheartened by the news that MLS has renewed its contract with Winner Communications to be the sole producers of MLS telecasts for the next several years. Does this mean we will continue to be subjected to lousy producing and pathetic directing? Still more shots of the coaches sitting on the bench motionless while the ball is in play? Close-ups of players nowhere near active play while the crowd screams in the background at the exciting play that is taking place elsewhere on the field? My friends and I are constantly screaming at our ...

  • U.S. Open Cup: Qualifying kicks off
    Qualifying is underway to determine the 32 teams that will compete in the 1999 U.S. Open Cup, which begins in June.

The eight winners will face eight A-League teams in the second round, to be played June 23-27. Eight MLS clubs will enter in the third round, meeting the eight second-round winners over the weekend of July 12-14. Quarterfinals are set for Aug. 11-12, with the semifinals ...
  • PAUL KENNEDY: Troubling sidebars
    To say the least, MLS is not off to a good start. A week after Doug Logan assured us that the percentage of games ending in the shootout would not continue at its record rate, it actually increased. Ron Newman is already gone, and two or three more coaches could follow shortly if they aren't careful. In Miami, we have Ivo Wortmann turning the Fusion into his own private Project-40 team. The shootout debate and controversial coaching moves aren't the problem. They come with the territory. Attendance has been largely disappointing. (Dallas is the notable exception.) One wonders what's the ...
