*The day after we saw a wild finish in a CONCACAF Champions League game (I can’t recall ever seeing four goals in the last six minutes of a game), the UEFA Champions League draw for the group stage was made today.
Fontana’s Maurice Edu and Glasgow Rangers will face Manchester United, while AC Milan, Real Madrid and Ajax were all drawn in one group. Full details here.
*Bell’s Bryan De La Fuente and Sylmar’s Cesar Zamora both of Chivas USA, cousins Emilio Orozco and Moises Orozco of Oxnard (who both play for Mexico’s Tigres) as well as Fontana’s Adrian Ruelas, who also plays with Santos Laguna in Mexico, were named to the U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team squad for a tournament in Peru next month.
*Twitter trade/loan rumor of the day via MLS Rumors: Paulo Araujo Jr to LA Galaxy and Tristan Bowen to Miami FC?
*Finally, if you’re single and looking to meet soccer-mad members of the opposite sex, this opportunity may well be for you this weekend at Home Depot Center.
