Jones is back after a long layoff
With German Bundesliga teams currently ramping up in preseason, Schalke's American midfielder Jermaine Jones has made his long awaited return to competitive action over the weekend.

Jones, 28, has not played since May 2009 when he suffered a fracture in his leg. While he was injured he filed with FIFA for a one-time switch from Germany, whom he represented at the youth level, to the US.

Yura bags two goals in Europa debut
With most of the world's sights still fixed on South Africa, the Europa and Champions League got off to a quiet start this week featuring the créme de la créme of teams falling in the category of "never heard of 'em, don't even know how to pronounce 'em". While the chances for nearly any of these teams to reach the group stage of their respective competition lay somewhere between winning the lottery and Christiano Ronaldo finishing a major tournament with any level of dignity, these early rounds offer some respite for the hardened soccer junkies who can't bear the thought of looking on the scoreboard to see that there's absolutely no meaningful games happening that day.

Yes, the two-day break between completion of the Round of 16 and the first quarterfinal matchup has been excruciating.

Jose Maria Garcia-Aranda was quoted as saying that, despite some mistakes, there has been a high overall standard at this summer's tournament.

Rossi's switch of allegiance backfired
The number of Americans playing in the World Cup this summer was reduced by one today as Giuseppe Rossi was cut from the Italian World Cup team by head coach Marcello Lippi.

Rossi, 23, was born in New Jersey to Italian born parents and famously turned down repeated requests to play for the United States in hopes to play for the country of his heritage.

The new cycle begins with Brazil
The USSF confirmed the US national team will play Brazil at the new Meadowlands Stadium in New Jersey on August 10 at 8pm EST. It will be the first game for the US of the 2014 cycle.

The US has played Brazil three times during the present cycle. While Brazil won all three games, two of them were very competitive. The Confederations Cup final was the most recent game and in that game the US scored two goals in the first half but Brazil scored three in the second half to come out as eventual victors.
