Honduran national team midfielder Luis Garrido will be suspended for the Dynamo's season finale Friday night at the Chicago Fire.

Garrido, a holding midfielder, has been one of the Dynamo's best players since joining the team this summer.

Jimenez growing into rightback role for Crew

The Crew has started no fewer than five different players at rightback this season, as Sporting Director and Head Coach Gregg Berhalter has tried out different combinations and players with varying tactical skillsets. Of late, Hector Jimenez has been getting the nod at the position. Jimenez, a converted wide midfielder, has done very well in the role and provides the offensive ability to get forward and create. That trait is especially key in Berhalters fluid, possession-based system. Read More

Next Women's World Cup a big chance for US soccer

The 1999 Women's World Cup final remains the highest-rated soccer game ever on U.S. English-language TV. When the United States beat China on penalty kicks at the Rose Bowl — and Brandi Chastain ripped off her jersey to celebrate — the ABC broadcast was watched in 11.4 percent of American homes with televisions. The last Women's World Cup final, when the Americans lost to Japan on penalty kicks in Germany in 2011, was watched by nearly 13.5 million people on ESPN on a Sunday afternoon.

Nguyen focused on Revs, not USMNT snub

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- As deserving as he was for a national team call-up, Lee Nguyen said Wednesday that he wasn't surprised he didn't hear from U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann ahead of last week's friendly versus Honduras. Despite leading all pure midfielders in MLS with 17 goals and scoring a league-best eight game-winning goals, Nguyen said that with his team looking to lock up second place, he wasn't expecting to get the call for Klinsmann. "I knew it was a long shot," Nguyen said.
