Soccerings of the Day 8.8.12

If you could only imagine how frustrated teachers were with my late projects and assignments...

Okay once again here's a new segment that I am aptly naming "Soccerings of the Day". The goal is to post every day semi-daily one relevant news-worthy link that is somewhat related to American soccer. And for funsies I might throw in video or article or bizarre gif.

Current News

Americans went 2-1 on advancing in the UEFA Champions League. Collectively they were +14 on the goal differential though, if that's worth anything. Sacha Kljestan (Anderlecht, Belgium.1) and Bryan Gerzicich (Ironi Kiryat Shmona, Israel.1) moved on to the final forty two while an injured Joshua Gatt couldn't help Molde advance. Here's the results from the third qualifying round:


If Anderlecht and Ironi Kiryat Shmona can get win their next round they'll enter the group stage, where Jermaine Jones' FC Schalke 04 await, amongst 21 other teams for a total of 32. Nothing confusing about that.

 Random Thing

Looked like Bobby Wood's career hasn't gone completely down the drain. I've been high on him for a while and I'm more than excited to see him scoring goals again. Check them out below...
(I'm not sure this is illegal but I don't think it's encouraged)

Nothing flashy but still pretty exciting seeing him run around and kicking balls and whatnots.
