The sites for the knockout rounds of the CONCACAF Gold Cup were announced Tuesday.
The Rose Bowl will host one of the semifinals, July 23, with the other taking place, July 22 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
The final will take place July 26 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara.
The assigned groups and full schedule will be announced March 7
The group stage venues include: Red Bull Arena (New Jersey), Nissan Stadium (Nashville), Qualcomm Stadium (San Diego), BBVA Compass Stadium (Houston), Raymond James Stadium (Tampa), Sports Authority Field (Denver), Toyota Stadium (Frisco, Texas), FirstEnergy Stadium (Cleveland) and the Alamodome (San Antonio).
The Galaxy announced Wednesday that they’ve signed midfielder Sebastian Lletget to a contract extension. Terms of the deal weren’t released.
Lletget, 24, was one of the club’s standouts in midfield last year, making 31 appearances. He scored five goals with nine assists in all competitions.
Lletget joined the Galaxy in 2015. He’s currently in camp with the U.S. Men’s National team.

Think Steven Gerrard had a great MLS debut for the Galaxy the other week? Then check out the second half eight-goal explosion that occurred when former Juventus midfielder played his first game Sunday for NYCFC:
As for the Galaxy, LA lost on the road 3-0 to Houston. It’s now about 10 months since the Galaxy won away from home if I recall correctly. And no, you don’t want to see highlights.

The US was hardly a disaster. They gave up two set piece goals. Jamaica has a good defense. Sports.

To me, last night's #USMNT loss was the team's worst ever from an upset standpoint. 1998 Iran (and others) hurt more for other reasons.
