Your morning round-up of soccer news

New York Red Bulls

RBNY played Sporting Kansas City last night - and did not lose.

BWP keeps setting MLS records - as our man Jason Iapicco points out.

It's silly season in England, which means transfer rumors, which means MLS clubs getting linked to just about everyone looking for a contract. Coventry City right back Cyrus Christie is getting his name linked to RBNY (and a few other MLS clubs).

Sporting KC's take on the 1-1 tie with RBNY: not bad under the circumstances.

Claudio Reyna clarified the terms of NYCFC's tenancy at Yankee Stadium: "we don't exactly have three years locked in with the Yankees."

Paul Gardner's war on MLS's refereeing standards and DisCo continues.

NWSL

Sky Blue's Kelley O'Hara is NWSL player of the week.

Sky Blue play Chicago Red Stars tonight, and there are discounted tickets available.

Christine Nairn scored a helluva goal for Washington Spirit on Monday.

US Soccer

USMNT got its World Cup campaign started with a warm up against Azerbaijan.

Patrick MacDonald saw a team in need of some practice.

Clint Dempsey didn't start because of a groin strain; doubtless unrelated, Snoop Dogg threw some love to the USMNT captain as part of a general message of encouragement to the team.

A reminder: it's the CONCACAF Champions League draw today, and RBNY is in it. Keep an eye on CONCACAF's website for details.

Germany somehow allowed two national team players to participate in the filming of a Mercedes Benz commercial. And they got into a crash. Coincidentally, Joachim Loew is banned from driving.

Sweden won't be competing at the World Cup, but that hasn't stopped local band Panetoz putting together a song for the tournament.
