Meanwhile, Didier Drogba may not be so hot on joining Phoenix Rising.

Seattle

S2 won their first game of the year, keeping Portland Timbers 2 winless through their first three games and improving to 8-1-0 all-time against their southern rivals. We were particularly impressed with Academy player Sam Rogers and First Teamer Zach Mathers.

Brad Evans is back in full training for the first time since returning from United States national team duty during the preseason. He could be available to play as soon as Saturday.

MLS/NWSL

The rumors of Zlatan Ibrahimovic joining the LA Galaxy appear to be getting stronger.

The Philadelphia Union are off to another bad start and Brotherly Game has no problems spreading the blame around.

You remember Atlanta United, right? Well, fresh off their tie with us they are letting it be known that they want to be "the biggest club in America."

The next round of MLS expansion is only getting started, but that hasn't stopped San Diego from getting the #banter started with their potential Southern California neighbors.

Speaking of MLS expansion, Orlando City could play a big part in whether or not the Tampa Bay Rowdies get in.

USA

Didier Drogba's agent is pushing back against rumors he's poised to sign with the USL's Phoenix Rising.

Our friends at The Mane Land see a future where the American soccer pyramid looks a lot like it does in Germany.

One of the biggest talking points out of the recent USMNT qualifiers has been Jermaine Jones' role within the team. Jones doesn't appreciate the criticism, and neither does Jurgen Klinsmann.

Given how Jones has played, though, you might not be surprised to learn that Stars and Stripes FC doesn't see him as part of their ideal starting XI.

With news that the World Cup is getting ready to expand, it's worth pondering how that would affect the way CONCACAF chooses their teams.

Just making sure everyone saw this ridiculous overhead goal from the weekend's Tijuana match.
