Attention shifts to the CONCACAF Gold Cup (Wednesday links)

concacaf logoThe Sounders are taking the day off from training, though there will be a number of press conferences at CenturyLink Field today ahead of Thursday’s CONCACAF Gold Cup doubleheader.

Panama-Martinique starts the night at 5:30 p.m. and Mexico-Canada starts at 8 p.m.

Tickets are available. Let’s get to some links:

*     *     *

— First off, the PRO referee organization took a deeper look at a Sounders FC play and ruled Obafemi Martins shouldn’t have been ruled offside in the second half against D.C. United. Martins, of course, has been getting some attention for his dining room set-up. He was also on the MLSsoccer.com Team of the Week.

— Here is a Mario Martinez update from FutbolMLS.net, though there is still no resolution on the midfielder’s future.

— Around MLS, ex-Sounder Alvaro Fernandez has been loaned to a club in Uruguay, Portland and Vancouver loaned some players out to clubs in Europe, San Jose signed an EPL veteran, and Goal.com has some midseason awards.

— In some USMNT news, Jozy Altidore‘s move to Sunderland is complete, and the team’s kit man had a great apology on Twitter for last night’s jersey snafu with ChrisWondowWondolowski.

— From the “Remember him?” department, former Sounder Daniel Steres has been named USL PRO Player of the Week. He’s having a good year with the Wilmington Hammerheads.

— It’s shaping up to be a big weekend for the Ruffneck Cup. The Sounders U-23s need to beat Kitsap to win the trophy, otherwise the Pumas take it.

— In the NWSL, ex-Sounders Women’s star Sydney Leroux was named Player of the Week, and here are the latest power rankings from the league website.

— Here is a feature on old NASL Sounders great Alan Hudson, who has fallen on hard times later in life. And don’t miss this feature on the son of an old Sounder who is finding success on his own path.

— Lastly, I agree that some 79-0 and 67-0 results in Nigeria look fishy.
