Major Link Soccer: Clint Dempsey on the brink of USMNT History

Back in the senior side, Deuce is getting closer and closer to history.

MLS:

Atlanta United striker/human microwave Josef Martinez is going to have an MRI to determine how long he'll be sidelined after sustaining a leg injury during Venezuela's qualifying match versus Peru.

San Diego's prospective MLS bid has now moved into the "potential club names" stage, with "Footy McFooty Face" justifiably leading the pack.

Seattle:

CenturyLink Field is a premier atmosphere in MLS, but one Sounder at Heart reader took a look at just how much of a fortress it truly is.

After 66 years, the Hydroplane races at Seafair will no longer be broadcasted live.

This month's Sounders Alliance Council meeting was focused on this season's marketing efforts, as well as the steps teams need to take to ensure there are #StarsforAll.

S2 kicked off their USL campaign with a tough 2-1 loss to Sacramento Republic FC.

March 26, 2017 marks the 100th anniversary of Seattle's only Stanley Cup championship, and with it an expanded interest in hockey in America.

United States:

With his hat trick versus Honduras, Clint Dempsey moves closer and closer to the all-time USMNT goals record. While he is on the brink of history, Clint is taking it one game at a time.

The U.S. Men's National team demolished Honduras on Friday, providing a strong return to form and great (second) start for Bruce Arena as manager. This resurgent performance reaffirmed just how tough of a position Jurgen Klinsmann put his U.S. teams in.

On the whole the team played well, but Christian Pulisic was a notable standout in his continued transition from hyped prospect to proven talent - which is further proven by looking at all of his touches.

The USMNT hype train doesn't stop with Pulisic, however, as 18-year old Tyler Adams continues to put in strong performances for the New York Red Bulls.

Bruce isn't done with adjusting his roster for the next qualifying match versus Panama, bringing in Club Tijuana midfielder Paul Arriola.

The World:

While the USMNT's form is on the rise, the Mexico team maintained their consistent form to get into first place in the CONCACAF hexagon.

Netherlands wunderkind Matthijs de Ligt was thrown into the fire by Netherlands manager Danny Blind, and his inexperience unfortunately showed in their qualifying match versus Bulgaria.
