Apparently people weren't happy that the Sounders invented advancing through the playoffs based off an 0-0 tie. Devin Plueler with MLSSoccer.com says it is time for people to get over it.

USMNT

Put the entire month of June, 2015 on the calendar, because it looks like the U.S. will play a friendly against Germany that month.

Europe

Prepare yourself world -- a new Beckham is joining the soccer world on the big stage.

Rest of the soccer world
