Chavarri will now head to Iran
New York- born Diego Chavarri is taking his career to Iran after joining newly promoted Gostaresh Fooload on loan.

Chavarri, 24, has bounced around Peruvian clubs for most of his life. He drew a lot of attention in 2011 when he scored highlight reel goals for Sporting Cristal. But injuries and off-field issues took their toll and he moved from club to club every year.

Tab Ramos has some thinking to do
After thinking about it, here are some thoughts on the US U-20 team at the World Cup after the loss to Spain.

No one actually thought the US would beat Spain did they? Regardless it still was not the type of performance you would hope for from the States. A few things immediately come to mind when reflecting on this one. Here are a few points that I'm thinking about.

Michael Bradley was once again the general of the midfield
The United States grinded out a one goal win Tuesday in World Cup Qualifying against Honduras at Rio Tinto Stadium.

A big three points for the States on a night that good teams have to find a way to win. Some players stuck out more than others, here are my ratings for the game.

Will Zusi get the nod against Honduras
Jurgen Klinsmann has tough decisions to make when deciding his starting lineup against Honduras.

In the backline, DaMarcus Beasley has been starting at left back the last four qualifiers but the three-time World Cub veteran in suspended. The options here are either going with Edgar Castillo who had a solid year with Tijuana or moving Fabian Johnson to left back.

The USMNT is cruisin in qualifying
It was a special night in Seattle as the US National Team dominated Panama and took the vital three points in World Cup Qualifying.

As a whole, the US played confident and creative soccer throughout. They pushed the game to Panama by attacking from various areas of the field and from different players.

Evans celebrates the winner
The United States national team earned their first win at The Office and many players enjoyed strong performance.

The 2-1 win over Jamaica along with the Mexico's draw against Panama ensured that the American team sits atop the Hexagonal standings despite three out of four games coming on the road. With the next two games coming at home, the United States has a clear opportunity to separate itself from the pack and cruise to an easy qualification.

Dempsey was the MOTM
What a difference a few days make as the United States held on for a 4-3 victory over a weakened German side.

There was some good and some bad of course from the performance which means players are rated both great and poor. Let's remember that the defense did give up three goals, unacceptable on any day.
