U.S. roster for Feb. 6 qualifier in Honduras to be released Monday (Saturday links)

US Centennial shield-01-1.jpg.pngU.S. Soccer announced the other day that the team’s roster for a Feb. 6 World Cup qualifier in Honduras will be released Monday morning (two days before the game).

Many are a bit puzzled as to why the wait will be that long.

Here’s perspective from the other side.

Sounders FC coach Sigi Schmid gave a slight indication that Eddie Johnson and Brad Evans might be on the USMNT roster, but we’ll wait for the official announcement.

Until then, let’s get to some links:

* * *

— Is Veracruz of the Mexican second division the team the Sounders will play in a preseason friendly?

Here’s a good story on draft pick Kevin Durr and having to balance a prospective pro career with Air Force commitments.

— Sounds like some Fluminense could be coming to MLS. Perhaps on trial. Perhaps on loan. Perhaps to the Sounders.

— Interested in the CenturyLink Field pro shop expanding?

— Around MLS, the Timbers officially parted ways with Kris Boyd, the Chicago Fire and Columbus Crew reportedly made a trade swapping Dilly Duka and Dominic Oduro, Houston ended its partnership with Greenstar Recycling, and here’s a look at what the recent transfers mean for the league.

— FC Dallas also noted on Twitter it is close to acquiring Eric Hassli in a trade with Toronto FC.

— Looks like U.S. international Stuart Holden survived a scare the other day.

— There will be some UW representation in a U.S. U-20 women’s training camp.

— Lastly, some words from our sports editor on losing Steve Kelley.
