Bedoya comes to MLS, the US Women start their Olympic run, and Cristian Roldan considers his international future.

Cristian Roldan is considering an opportunity with the Guatemalan National Team.

MLS

The only league match yesterday saw Toronto FC defeating Real Salt Lake 1-0 at home.

As can be expected, the final day of the transfer window saw activity from several MLS sides. The biggest signing of the day was that of US International Alejandro Bedoya by the Philadelphia Union.

The biggest intra-MLS trade was probably between Orlando City SC and the San Jose Earthquakes. The Earthquakes have picked up the 26-year-old Darwin Cerén in exchange for Designated Player Matías Pérez García.

The Chicago Fire have bolstered their youth with the signing of 21-year-old Armenian International David Arshakyan.

Former Seattle Sounder and MLS journeyman Sebastian Le Toux is now a member of the Colorado Rapids.

There were no flashy signings for the Houston Dynamo, but they did add two young players that they had been tracking.

In some unexpected news, it turns out that New York City FC loves the Seattle Times.

CCL

CCL play also continued yesterday with two matches involving MLS sides. First, the Red Bulls easily defeated Angigua GFC by a score of 3-0 in New York.

Later, in Portland, the Timbers just barely managed a 2-1 victory at home off of a 90th minute goal from Diego Valeri.

USA

The US Women won their first match of the Olympics by a score of 2-0 over New Zealand.

Hope Solo was not well-received by the Brazilian crowd following her comments regarding Zika and her hesitation to join these Olympics. She was reminded of this hesitation every time that she touched the ball.
