Daily news roundups

Emilio linked to Union, other morning news

Philadelphia Union could sign Brazilian striker Luciano Emilio, The Washington Post reports. Emilio posted double digits in goals for three straight years with D.C. United and won the league’s MVP award in 2007 before leaving the club after last season. He’s temporarily slumming it with his youth team in Brazil’s third division, though few think he’ll remain there after their season ends in several weeks. Like Fred, he joined D.C. United in 2007, just after current Union manager Peter Nowak left the club.

Major League Soccer’s new web site has a round-up of all the week’s first matches, including the New York Red Bulls’ win in their first match at their new stadium.

Goal.com’s Kyle McCarthy is the latest to declare the stadium to be totally awesome and adds some readable commentary on the week’s first matches.

Attendance increased over last year’s MLS opening day, Soccer America reports.

U.S. international Charlie Davies targets a return to his French team for three weeks from now in what could be an incredible comeback from the car wreck that left one dead.

Meanwhile, Herculez Gomez continued his torrid goalscoring pace in Mexico’s top division as he plays himself into the national team picture. He’s now second in the league in scoring, with seven goals.

Philadelphia Union will have a representative on an advisory board behind Widener University’s new sports management program, The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

  1. Double B would be crazy not to look into this Herculez Gomez situation. I would much rather see him make the squad than Robbie Findley.
