Major Link Soccer - The LA Galaxy Keep It Classy

Seattle advances in the US Open Cup, LA takes a cheap shot, and Lionel Messi needs a new razor.

Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports


Happy Copa day everybody! The big news is obviously that the US will be playing Ecuador tonight right here in CenturyLink. Unfortunately, Deandre's one and only red card in his time with the USMNT means that he will be missing the opportunity to play here at home.

In other important news, Seattle defeated the Kitsap Pumas by a score of 2-0. We've got analysis up here on the site, but you can also go with Likkit's abbreviated mid-game analysis:

US Open Cup

Other MLS teams did not fair as well in this round of the cup. FC Dallas and The Chicago Fire both just managed to squeak through in penalties.

DC United also took their match to penalties, but lost it there to the Ft Lauderdale Strikers.

New York City FC was eliminated yet again by cross-town rivals NY Cosmos, even after improving their odds by playing away from the dreadful Yankee Stadium.

The LA Galaxy showed exactly how classy they are by resorting to the below goal to defeat amateur side La Maquina. La Maquina are now protesting the match result with US Soccer.

Copa America

With the knockouts starting today, there is still a bit of time to look back at the group stages and some of the biggest disappointments.

We know how important it is for the US to perform in Copa America, but it is pretty important to Ecuador as well.

As mentioned before, Deandre Yedlin will not be playing tonight in his home town. Fortunately, Michael Orozco says that he's ready to go if called on.

Assuming that the US does manage to make it past Ecuador tonight, our next task is now clear. We must shave Lionel Messi.
