After Jurgen Klinsmann took over the U.S. national soccer team nearly two years ago, the positive results were not immediate. As recently as late May, when the Americans lost a friendly to Belgium, there were questions about whether the former German star and coach was a good fit. While the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup is clearly not the World Cup in terms of competition or worldwide significance, Klinsmann's imprint is becoming apparent as the U.S....

The quarterfinal matchups of the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday will be sold out, a source said Friday. A late surge among fans of the United States and El Salvador teams pushed sales from 15,000 last Sunday to an expected crowd of more than 71,000 for the game this weekend. The interest in the game was partially attributed to the U.S. national men's soccer team's first appearance in Baltimore since 1997, but also due to the passion of the El Salvador team's fanbase, the source said.

Soccer has long been known for its one-name goal scorers. Fifty years ago, it was a brilliant Brazilian star everyone called Pele. Today, it's an Argentine artist named Lionel but now known by his last name: Messi. Just saying their names evokes images of magic and trickery. And then there is Wondo. Chris Wondolowski does not elicit the same response from even the most die-hard fan - if they know him at all. He is more mechanic than maestro, a player who was expected to spend his career on the fringes, if not on the bench, until he emerged as a goal-scoring machine.

Freddy Adu, a one-time child star from Montgomery County who flamed out almost as quickly as he ascended to top of the U.S. soccer scene, is getting another second chance. Adu, an attacking midfielder, was one of 23 players named Monday to the U.S. national team for next month's friendly with World Cup champion Spain, followed by the 12-nation CONCACAF Gold Cup. "He's a player that certainly we all know at different times has shown some soccer abilities that are special," U.S. coach Bob Bradley said.

Baltimore might have missed out on hosting World Cup matches when the U.S. lost its bid for the quadrennial event in 2022, but M&T Stadium will be part of another prestigious international soccer tournament when the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup comes to the city in July. M&T Bank Stadium is one of 13 venues that were announced Wednesday as hosts for the regional championship event. CONCACAF is the governing body for association soccer in North America, Central America and the Caribbean.

The U.S. men's national soccer team's first appearance in Baltimore since 1997 took a couple of interesting twists this week leading up to Sunday's CONCACAF Gold Cup quarterfinal against El Salvador at M&T Bank Stadium. The first came Wednesday when U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann was the only one of the managers in this grouping to fully exercise an option to make as many as four personnel changes. While that didn't come as a total surprise considering Klinsmann's willingness to work his roster around the needs of the players' club season, what seems a bit stunning is that Sunday's games will be played before a sellout crowd in excess of 71,000.

Clarence Goodson has spent most of his soccer career in the shadows. At Maryland, where Goodson helped lead the Terps to two straight national semifinal appearances in 2002 and 2003, he was often upstaged by his oldest friend and former Northern Virginia high school teammate, Abe Thompson. For much of his 10-year professional career, Goodson has been considered a solid, steady defender, but has toiled mostly in the obscurity of Norway (IK Start) and Denmark (Brondby) after starting out in Major League Soccer.

The U.S. team is 6-1-1 since Bora Milutinovic took over in April and has a five-game winning streak, its longest since the Americans began keeping records in 1885.
