Major Link Soccer: US Women fall to China

Wambach's final match wasn't a storybook, but maybe that's because it isn't the end of her story.

Brad Evans is up in the current bracket for the "#MLSsoshies" awards which are for the MLS player with the best social media presence.

Marco Pappa to the Colorado Rapids is official, and the club's social media team appears to be excited. In Colorado, he'll be expected to carry much of the offensive load for the West's worst club.

DeAndre Yedlin has always had a unique style, but Alejandro Bedoya may have hit the nail on his head with his recent critique.

The Columbus Crew have announced the Pittsburgh Riverhounds as their USL affiliate.

Toronto FC has become the second MLS team to ever sign a free agent. Drew Moor will be joining the red after 7 seasons with the Colorado Rapids. He might have to play around a hockey rink: Toronto's BMO Field may be the host of a 2017 NHL Winter Classic game.

As the General Manager for expansion side Orlando City SC, Paul McDonough had a reasonably successful year. Now he's set to do it all over again for the upcoming expansion in Atlanta.

Now Louisville wants in on the MLS Expansion game.

USA

Abby Wambach's amazing career with the US Women came to a somewhat disappointing end with a loss to China last night.

It is unlikely that this is the last that we'll hear from Abby Wambach. She has given a series of interviews leading up to the match and, as usual, she has not been shy about expressing her opinions, including that she feels Jurgen Klinnsman should be fired.

Then again, her twitter activity may be an indication that we won't be hearing as much from her expected.

The women have now wrapped up their victory tour, but it didn't go as smoothly as it could have. The Guardian compares the treatment of the team to a traveling circus and implores US Soccer to show some more respect.

Finally, the location of the Copa America Centenario Final has been decided to take place in New Jersey's MetLife Stadium.
