US to face Honduras in January friendly (Soccer by Ives)

Philadelphia Union putting out roots. Nothing too exciting here, but it’s good to read about the Union making connections with local youth teams.

Wayne Rooney sleeps through World Cup draw, admits that the US is a good team. (Guardian)

The only other soccer goodness today: Danish Superliga action. Benny Feilhaber and (future Unioner?) Jeremiah White should see the field today. Check your local illegal p2p site for live feeds.
