  • MLS: Fire trades midfielder Tinsley to San Jose

  • MLS: Hahnemann leaves Rapids for England's Fulham
    Fulham FC, which recently won promotion to the English First Division, has purchased the contract of Colorado Rapids goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann from Major League Soccer. Hahnemann will leave the Rapids effective immediately to join Fulham.

In three seasons with the Rapids, Hahnemann's regular-season record is 49-36. He leaves a ...

  • Youth National Teams: Late Beasley goal gives U-17s 2-2 draw with England
    In the first-ever international match at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla. the U.S. U-17 national team drew 2-2 against England to extend its unbeaten streak to 14 matches, 10 months and 1,240 minutes. At England's insistence, the match was shortened to 70 minutes, with two 35-minute halves and unlimited substitutions were allowed. "We had a lot of chances today and did not capitalize on them. In New Zealand, scoring opportunities will be few and far. We will need to improve on converting our chances if we want to have a chance of advancing out of our group," said U-17 ...
