You all know what day it is, so let’s dive right on into the kicks!
Revolution players refused to train after Bruce Arena resignation (The Athletic): The drama continues… questions posed to New England are being directed to MLS. How long will the league hang on to its surprisingly-well-kept secret?
U.S. Soccer names 27-player USWNT roster (SSFC): Say farewell to Julie Ertz and Megan Rapinoe, who will not actually play together so that each has their own sendoff match.
USMNT preparing for “great test” against Oman to close September window (SBI): I include this as my fill-in for the results of the USMNT game, as I sadly had to schedule this post before the match concluded so I could get some rest before today’s work day. Was it indeed a “great test”?
Washington Spirit’s Paige Metayer’s journey from undrafted rookie to pro starter (WTOP): The Spirit’s star has some whispering “rookie-of-the-year”.
Lionel Messi out for Argentina at Bolivia: How this boosts Inter Miami’s playoff hopes (The Athletic): When I first read this headline, I thought it was the Nutmeg News. Alas, this headline is real.
To end the morning read, a chuckle from r/MLS’s Meme Monday… It’s going to be an anxious final month of regular season play.
