The United States under-17 squad is currently competing in the World Cup in Chile, and as is the case for every other U.S. male team at the moment, things aren't going well. The U.S. blew a 2-0 lead against Croatia on Tuesday and sit third in Group A on one point. A win over the hosts in the final group game may be required to advance to the knockout round. At least star in the making Christian Pulisic came away with a goal and an assist.

New York's match was pushed back a couple of hours so kickoff will coincide with the start of FC Dallas' game. With the two clubs fighting for the MLS Supporters' Shield, the move makes sense, but it leaves traveling Red Bulls fans in a lurch.
It hasn't been an easy journey from conception to reality for the Miami club, but Leiweke, who has helped to bring success to LA Galaxy and Toronto FC, might smooth things out.
Arsenal has been playing well lately but Bayern has been an unstoppable steamroller in 2015, so Tuesday's Champions League result was a surprise. The rest of the day's European action pretty much went as expected.
