OL Reign players played a key part for the USWNT in their win over Colombia, with Rose Lavelle and Megan Rapinoe assisting on all three goals. The Sounders put on a little show in their 3-0 home win, and Will Bruin looked particularly good starting in place of Raúl Ruidíaz. The transfer window is starting to heat up all over the world, but nothing’s been quite as spicy as LAFC seemingly inexplicably signing Gareth Bale to a TAM deal.
