*Tragedy in Liberia, where at least eight die at the Monrovia stadium during a World Cup qualifier with Gambia. The match ended 1-1. D.C. United's Francis Doe played the final 29 minutes. New England's Kenny Mansally was on the Gambia roster, but did not play.

How about this: Jack Warner invites England for a friendly. England FA can't stop laughing. Then it occurs to the suits, they are going to need CONCACAF support for a successful 2018 World Cup bid. England reconsiders. Underbelly.
*U.S. defender Jonathan Spector might miss the Olympics.
*Admit it, you miss those D.C. United-Washington Freedom doubleheaders at RFK, don't you? Alas, they're back. One, anyway: June 22, following the DCU-San Jose match, the Freedom will face Richmond in a W-League exhibition.
*With the weekend off from league play, the Kansas City Wizards defeated Municipal of Guatemala, 2-0, in Bugs's favorite town. Ivan Trujillo scored twice in the first half.
*Crystal Palace USA suffered its first USL2 defeat after five victories, 3-0 at home to Charlotte, while Real Maryland (3-4) dropped a 3-0 decision at Harrisburg.
