Caleb Patterson-Sewell has moved up to the Primeira Liga
Caleb Patterson-Sewell has been rewarded after enjoying a strong season keeping Atletico CP afloat despite their woeful offense.
The Tennessee-born, Australia-raised goalkeeper Patterson-Sewell became the first American on the move this summer as he signed with Vitoria Setubal in the Portuguese top flight after spending the 2011-2012 season with second division Atletico.
The U.S. National Team roster is analyzed in this special edition episode
Tuesday night's Special Edition episode of the Yanks Abroad Podcast is online.
After Jurgen Klinsmann released his preliminary National Team roster for the summer, it was decided to go live with a special episode of the Yanks Abroad Podcast to provide immediate analysis on his selections and the players that were not included, with the obvious focus being on Timmy Chandler.
Zak Whitbread has been released from Norwich City after two and a half seasons
American defender Zak Whitbread has been released by Norwich City following another injury-plagued season.
It was another half season for Whitbread as he missed almost four months of action due to a series of injuries at the start and end the campaign. Whitbread looked very strong since January, earning plaudits and speculation that he would be picked by Jurgen Klinsmann to finally represent the U.S. National Team this summer.
Has Chandler worn the US jersey for the last time?
Yesterday it was announced that the US national team is moving on without Timothy Chandler.
When the initial part of the US roster was announced on Tuesday, Timothy Chandler's name was not included and Jurgen Klinsmann said that the German-born right back wants to "take a break" from the US team.
On Sunday, US U-20 midfielder/defender Caleb Stanko earned impressive silverware.
Stanko, 18, started and played a full 90 for Freiburg's U-19 team as they defeated Hertha Berlin 2-1 in the finals of the U-19 German Cup. Hertha Berlin started US U-20 central defender John Anthony Brooks and Jerome Kisewetter who has also been making the transition from forward to defender.
Our thoughts are with the Gromstad and Stabaek families.
Stabæk's season took a tragic turn Monday morning, when Tor-Marius Gromstad was found dead at a construction site in Oslo, Norway.
The 22-year-old defender was reported missing Saturday night. He left his brother's apartment in Bislett, Oslo, without a phone or wallet at 7:26 that morning and was not seen afterward. Police, teammates and fans searched a day and a half before his body was found.
Last weekend US head coach Jurgen Klinsmann announced he would call in 29 players into USMNT camp, here is my predicted roster.
The latest news that Klinsmann will call in 29 players allows him to be slightly more experimental and take a look at some younger players who are performing well. Also with MLS in full swing, there are some players who have stood out who deserve to be included.
Despite being a club in a financial tailspin, Stabaek will be heading to the Europa League on fair play.
In the beginning of the year Stabaek was hit with a financial crisis and was forced to sell almost all of its top players. Through seven games in the Norwegian season, the club has been forced to play mostly young players or players there on loan.
