Graham Zusi's goal was the difference
In beating Jamaica the USA earned a perfect record at home during World Cup qualifying.

Even more encouraging was that the USA didn't allow a goal during the entire group and for the second straight cycle, it won the hexagonal tournament outright. The U.S will finish out the tournament on Tuesday against a desperate Panama team with everything on the line.

DC United stunned RSL for the Open Cup
Real Salt Lake sat miserable in an all too familiar setting Tuesday night.

There were players sitting in the middle of the field with their head in their hands. Eyes were red. Frustration had passed, it was now time for mourning. Maybe, the most memorable, was head coach Jason Kreis, who stared for what seemed like an eternity in a daze, watching as the grounds crew built the stage where another team would lift a trophy in his fortress, for a third straight time.

Holmes was fantastic in his first pro game for Huddersfield
Duane Holmes lived up to the hype in his professional debut on Tuesday and has earned rave reviews for his performance.

In Huddersfield Town's League Cup game against Hull City, Holmes entered the game early in the second half as an offensive spark. In the end, Huddersfield lost 1-0 but most of the attending press was raving about Holmes' performance.

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.
