Check out former Sounders HGP Sean Okoli score the game-winner for FC Cincinatti in a 2-1 win over Bethlehem Steel:

USA

Hooo boy, recently retired USWNT forward Abby Wambach was arrested on DUI charges in Portland on Saturday night. On Sunday, she released this statement apologizing.

Earlier that morning, Alejandro Bedoya took the opportunity to bring back up Wambach's previous comments on "foreign players" in the US soccer; Jozy Altidore took part as well though to a lesser extent, referencing Hope Solo's DUI last March.

USMNT defender Matt Miazga got his league debut for Chelsea this weekend, showing well and helping the club earn its first clean sheet in 10 games in a 4-0 win over Aston Villa.

With a forward pool as shallow as the USMNT's, every potential scoring threat is worth looking at. Fans remember the call-up of NASL-side Minnesota United's Miguel Ibarra in 2014, and his teammate Christian Ramirez has been making the case for a similar chance.

World

Longtime player and manager of AC Milan and former Italy and Paraguay manager Cesare Maldini died on Sunday at age 84. A legend in Italian soccer, Maldini was also part owner of NASL-side Miami FC, currently head coached by former Italian international Alessandro Nesta.

Seattle fans seem to want Zlatan. How do you feel after seeing him as a Powerpuff Girl? Any other international stars catch your eye? You can also "Powerpuff Yourself" (Cartoon Network's reboot of the series starts April 4th).

Leaks. So many leaks and so many corruption/conspiracy charges. About one hundred times bigger than WikiLeaks, they're calling them "The Panama Papers".
