Some Soccer News for Wed Sep 19, 2012


This story could be the biggest soccer news in America, maybe ever!

The Anschutz Corp. run by Phil Anschutz essentially bankrolled MLS during the very lean years, and is now set to sell off the entertainment portion of his company that contains his MLS stake.

What does this mean for MLS and American soccer?

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news on Tuesday night writing that Anschutz Corp is lining up to sell Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG) which owns among other things the LA Galaxy and Home Depot Center.

The LA Times with more on the story.

Salt Lake got a dramatic late winner in Panama last night to keep their chances of advancing alive. Alvaro Saborio was taken down in the Penalty Box 2 minutes into second half stoppage time, and he converted the PK to win it 0-1.
Michael C Lewis of the Salt Lake Tribune reports that Saborio sprained his shoulder on the big play and could miss a month. A month in which the team and his country Costa Rica desperately need him in all competitions.
-Lewis gives us a match report as well.

James Edward of the Deseret News also reports on RSL's crazy win at Tauro.

Saborio will also miss the next CCL game (a must-win game v Herediano) no matter what his health due to yellow card accumulation.


Joshua Mayers of the Seattle Times writes that the Sounders can advance with a win in Honduras.
