Watch: Darlington Nagbe's first USMNT goal looks like his first Portland Timbers goal

Nagbe's first goal for the U.S. Men's National team came on a volley, much like his first goal for the Timbers back in 2011, which came on a volley and was voted the MLS Goal of the Year.

Instant Replay: Controversy reigns in Zakuani & Friends charity match!

Oh sure, Steve Zakuani reached out to a bunch of his soccer-playing friends to just have a trumped up pick up game all in the name of charity. But we saw through the ruse. You simply could not stop the competitive juices from flowing once these one-time top athletes got onto the pitch together. The players were looking for any advantage they could get, and we were watching! *Special thanks to Bootstrapper Studios and SoundersFC.com for making this feed happen, making it possible for us to have some fun.

Zakuani's Charity Game was masterclass in soccer as joyful poetry

Sure, Steve Zakuani's blue team won 7-6. That wasn't the point. In a couple months West Ham is going to play the Seattle Sounders in a friendly, but it's a game that still matters a bit. The EPL side will be in preseason training focusing fitness and tactical changes. Sigi Schmid will have a few players trying to prove that they are ready for league time. Every player on the pitch will be a pro. The Zakuani & Friends Charity Game was an uber-friendly, or a platonic friendly. These are no longer pros. Instead the blue and red squads featured former MVPs, World Cup players, coaches, broadcast...

As impressively as former Sounder player and current broadcaster Steve Zakuani has reinvented himself within the game, he's justifiably as proud of his ability to forge another path outside of it.

Steve Zakuani thinks Sounders still need a playmaker

The Sounder sees an attack that is decent, capable of being good, but it will not be great until the club adds a major talent. He also thinks this is the best defense Seattle's seen. When the conversation turns to soccer and the Seattle Sounders that he analyzes on TV or radio every week, Steve Zakuani is in his element. His future as an analyst is bright. The midfielder's speech has slowed down from his rapid-fire days as a rookie, but it is filled with knowledge, a willingness to critique the club and rightful praise when appropriate. One thing he's noticed this year, we've all noticed,...

Steve Zakuani's post-playing career includes charity work and another book

The former Sounders winger and current Sounders commentator had an engaging 30-minute conversation with our own Dave Clark. These excerpts focus on life outside of soccer and the 2016 Zakuani and Friends Charity Game. Back when Nos Audietis hosted YachtCon15 Steve Zakuani said he still did not know what his future would hold. He had the opportunity to dabble in many things with the Seattle Sounders and his charity work. A few months later, and seven months after his first Zakuani and Friends Charity Game, Steve has a better idea of what his post-playing future holds. It's still a wide...
