Top of the morning to you all! I’m completing the switch Annie and I had this week due to our travel schedules, and I’m glad it worked out where both of us were able to give you the good stuff on these Freedom Kicks. Yesterday had some real notable news worth sharing, so here we go:
Gio Reyna is back on the USMNT squad after he and Gregg Berhalter mend fences. Also, in DCU circles, Kevin Paredes is back on the squad.
Lionel Messi was nominated for MLS MVP AND MLS Newcomer of the Year. I’ma let y’all handle this one.
Speaking of which, Messi is back on the Argentina squad despite not having played in a few weeks.
Morocco and Spain want to host the 2030 World Cup final. Only one of them can. It will be interesting to see which one will get the chance, with Morocco having a chance to becoming only the 2nd African nation to host a World Cup final.
4 of PSG’s players engaged in an offensive chant directed at Marseille, with the chant including homophobic lyrics. Those players were suspended for a game, while the supporters section at Parc des Princes must be vacant for a match.
Enjoy the weekend, everyone! Vamos Spirit tonight!
