You can meet Clint Dempsey next week! Deuce will be at the Canvas in Sodo on Tuesday for a charity event, with proceeds going to The Melodic Caring Project.

Alan Hinton or "Mr Soccer" has a story to tell you, its one of tragedy, triumph, and perseverance. Hinton's career started in Woverhamton, England in 1961 and Mr Soccer is still going strong in Seattle today.

Jordan Morris will be celebrating WE Day in Seattle with 15,000 school kids who made a difference in their communities.

In the last three games the Seattle Sounders have two wins and a draw, all signs point to Seattle being on the rise in the standings but is their play on the field changing. Or could it be that Herculez is back in town.

S2 recorded their first shutout of the season on Sunday and Michael Nelson earned plaudits for his strong play in his season debut. On Tuesday Nelson was named to the USL Team of the Week.

Sounders U23 team bring back two former national team goalkeepers for the summer. Paul Christensen and Jeff Caldwell will battle every training session for the starting spot.

Americans kept scoring over the weekend, Bobby Wood buried another for Union Berlin. Little known American Fafa Picault hit a brace for St. Pauli, and Gideon Zelalem scores a crucial penalty.

It might be time for another U.S. goalkeeper to come home. Brad Guzan and Aston Villa have been relegated and unless he is willing to take a 50% pay cut Guzan will have to look for a new club.

World Soccer

Breaking ankles and flipping over sign boards just to get on the field. One fan demonstrated his skills to the security guards and then strutted his stuff.

It will be an eye in the sky during Euro 2016, UEFA has confirmed all 10 stadiums will have goal-line technology. We will also see Hawk-Eye system for the Champions league and Europa league finals.

Messi scored his 500th goal over the weekend, but today we celebrate his best ever goal. You know the one against Getafe where he nutmegs a few and make other players miss all while running 60 yards. Kinda like Maradona.

If we all had friends like this guy life would be grand. Paul Gorrie is getting married and his best man wanted to treat him to a soccer game, what Gorrie didn't realize is that he would be escorting the players on to the pitch.

It's that time of the season where fans start calling for their managers to be fired, will it be out with the old and in with the new for Arsenal and Everton?

Major League Soccer

Goals of the Week: MLS, LIgue 1, and Serie A stunners.
