U.S. camp at Princeton, Boyzzz, Macoumba, Milan

*The U.S. national team will hold its domestic training camp ahead of the World Cup at Princeton University in New Jersey, the USSF announced. Players will begin arriving May 15 and the squad will train May 17-23 before friendlies against the Czech Republic on May 25 in East Hartford, Conn., and May 29 vs. Turkey in Philadelphia. The sessions are closed to the public. USA Coach Bob Bradley played and coached at Princeton. The 23-man squad will arrive in Johannesburg on May 31 -- 12 days before the Group C opener against England in Rustenburg.

*D.C. United midfielder-forward Boyzzz Khumalo said some of the comments attributed to him on an African-based site were misinterpreted and he has no intention of seeking a release from his MLS contract to play in his native South Africa. Added General Manager Dave Kasper: "We value Boyzzz. He will get his opportunity in the near future." Khumalo (53 minutes in three appearances) is a candidate to start in next Wednesday's U.S. Open Cup preliminary match against FC Dallas at RFK Stadium.

*New York Red Bulls starting forward Macoumba Kandji will miss two to three months with a broken foot. He was injured in training Tuesday.

*Besides the previously announced friendlies against United (May 26) and the second-division Montreal Impact (June 2), AC Milan will play the Chicago Fire on May 30 at Toyota Park.

I posted that Boyzzz link earlier. Glad to lend a hand Goffer.

Princeton makes a lot sense. Between the two friendly sites and they have a terrific natural grass* soccer facility.

*Actually kind of hard to find these days

Which part of "The sessions are closed to the public" do you refuse to acknowledge? Maybe there's some building with roof access and a binocular-aided view of the field.
I missed signing up in time for the first round of games by a few minutes -- and didn't even know about the significance of a team captain until the quarterfinal round -- so I won't have the points to challenge ol' Chesty, but I feel like crowing anyway: 54 points in UEFA Argy-Bargy this week -- five of my 10 field players scored.

Wow - now there's some irony for you. My sentence makes no sense and is in reference to an Ivy League school. Me talk pretty one day.

Milan will play 3 games in 8 days after just completing their season?

Ouch. At least United has the first match.

By the time they play Montreal, they'll be calling up players from USL D3 teams and slapping jerseys with fake Italian names on them.

Re Princeton - That figures, elitist playing commie ball.

Re Boyzzz - has MLS arrived yet? We have the transfer by press followed by the "I was taken out of context" statement.

Re Kandji - It does not matter, RBNY is going to do a number on us in a few weeks. (Get well soon Kandji).

Re Friendlies - Say Goff, do you happen to know if Free Waivers United will play Free Transfers United this summer? If so will viewing be free?

If you've lost Boyzzz, then you've lost DC United.

Princeton sounds fine, but why not train in Denver? Get a 2 week jump on the altitude, nice facility at Dick's Sporting Goods Park, fairly cool weather, 3 hour flight to the friendlies.

Boyzzzz - I would have liked them to sign Two Boys Gumede
