It's no secret that Lodeiro had an immediate impact when he joined the Sounders. ESPN has quotes from Garth Lagerway discussing the science and the art of rapidly integrating players into your team.

Despite last night's result, Brian Schmetzer's tenure as interim coach has been overwhelming successful. He's letting those results do the talking in his bid for the permanent role.

MLS

With the regular season nearly wrapped up, it's almost time to award the Supporter's Shield. MLSsoccer.com has the history of this fan-made trophy.

Matt Besler had a reasonably successful showing for the US National team on Tuesday, so why isn't he getting regular starts with Sporting Kansas City?

FourFourTwo has an extensive interview with New York Red Bulls' striker, Bradley Wright Philips.

The LA Galaxy have announced that they will be fully funding three girls development teams. They are, so far, the only MLS side to fully fund a girls' team.

The New York Red Bulls have inadvertently made a great case for safe standing with their latest ad, which urges season ticket holders to renew for next season.

USA

Abby Wambach recently renewed her questioning of dual-citizens playing for the US National Team and challenged these players to convince her that they are worthy. Mix Diskerud has accepted the challenge.

With the friendlies behind us, Jurgen Klinsmann has decisions to make about who will represent the USA against Mexico.

Sacha Klejstan did his best to make the decision more difficult by taking advantage of the second chance that was granted to him.

The US may have only drawn against New Zealand, but SI believes the results show a strong US rebound.

World

The latest episode of FiveThirtyEight's sports Podcast, "Hot Takedown", discusses the past, present, and future of soccer statistics.

It's never too early to predict all of the teams that will make it to the World Cup, at least not if you are NBC Sports.

Brazil's National Team has long had the nickname of "Canarinhos", or "Little Canaries", in reference to their iconic yellow kits. Now this nickname has been personified as a National Team Mascot, a giant angry canary.
