Even Sepp is confused at this one...
FIFA approves of the officiating at the 2010 World Cup. What are they smoking?

An article a few days ago in the UK's Guardian caught my attention. It talks about how FIFA's head of refereeing is 'very happy' with the officiating so far at the 2010 World Cup. 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.

A foreign-heavy squad completes the 23
With today's announcement of the 2010 World Cup roster, it would be a good time to break down the components of this cycle's team.

This year's team of 23 players comes from 10 different leagues. In doing this, we are going to use the player's most recent club so players like DaMarcus Beasley and Jay DeMerit, who are no longer under contract, are still considered part of the Rangers and Watford, respectively.

Rene Khrin could spark the Slovenians
On June 18th US soccer fans will become much more familiar with the relatively unknown Slovenian national team that knocked off favored Russia to advance to their first World Cup since 2002.

Since splitting from the Yugoslavian national team in 1991, Slovenia's success on the world stage has been fairly limited, however their upset of Russia in a two-leg playoff to earn a spot in South Africa sent a message to the rest of Group C that earning a result against head coach Matjaž Kek's squad will be no easy task.
