Bill Plaschke was quick to downplay the US team
Some folks are tough to please.

While most of the American media was praising the U.S. men's national team's 2-0 victory over Mexico on Tuesday night that guaranteed them a berth in the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, one Los Angeles based sports writer decided to go the opposite route and pour cold water over the celebrations by the players and fans at Columbus Crew Stadium in Ohio.

Yao returns to Belgium
Journeyman Devann Yao has resurfaced in Belgium after leaving Royal Boussu-Dour Borinage of the second division Exqi League earlier this year, now suiting up for La Louviere.

The New Yorker left his last Belgian employer by mutual consent due to a lack of playing time after signing a two-year contract extension in order to follow a few suitors in France.

Cameron is one of many Americans at Stoke
Stoke City will have four Americans starting January 1st when Juan Agudelo joins the Potters from New England.

Ordinarily, American soccer fans would cheer the fact that so many of our countrymen are playing Premier League soccer-the problem with Stoke is that only one American is actually seeing game time consistently.

Johnson belongs in the midfield
Fabian Johnson is one of the best U.S national team players, but where should he play on the field?

The versatile Johnson has floated between left back and left midfield ever since he started playing for the United States in 2011. The bonus for U.S team is that he has excelled in both positions but it is becoming clearer that the midfield is where he is most valuable to the U.S team.

The safest of bets is Jozy Altidore

Altidore had a terrific night
The United States national team overcame a 2-0 halftime deficit to defeat Bosnia 4-3 in Sarajevo.

The highlight of the match was certainly the performance of Jozy Altidore, who provided a second half hat trick on top of an assist in one of the best performances by a United States forward in recent memory.

After a decade of Cherundolo at RB, what lies beyond?
The USMNT is in the midst of an 11 game winning streak but lost in the accolades is the growing murkiness of the team's right back situation.

For the past decade this hasn't been much of an issue since Steve Cherundolo has owned the position and has been one of the most reliable players in U.S history. But right now Cherundolo is 34 years old and has had two knee surgeries in 2013.
