Here is Dani Alves just before halftime in the big Barcelona-Real Madrid game yesterday. Yowza. Alves and Co. just held on to advance in the Copa del Rey and this turned out to be the deciding goal.

Anyways, onto the morning links:

— Only one player was rated higher than Jeff Parke in these ESPN grades of the U.S. win in Panama last night. Parke was more middle of the pack according to MLSsoccer.com. Brad Evans also got mixed results.

— A couple interesting videos from SoundersFC.com: a 1v1 with new defender Marc Burch and another clip with players talking about the new ball.

— You gotta check out this Ultimate Soccer Draft over at SI.com.

— Bolton finalized its acquisition of New York’s Tim Ream this morning from . Along the same lines, the league website has an interesting look at some big transfers that didn’t go through.

— Here’s a good roundup of open tryout information for local PDL teams.

— Lastly, a pretty embarrassing own goal
