in a preseason game against San Jose.
Weaver said a return this weekend against D.C. United is a possibility.

Brian Ching arrived in Princeton,
N.J. over the weekend, at the U.S.
men’s national team training camp. Ching said it is an
honor
every time he wears the national team colors, because he never knows
when it will be his last time.

After Landon Donovan inferred that English striker Wayne
Rooney would be worn out from the long soccer season, Jozy Altidore joined
the fun
by predicting the United States
would defeat England
3-0. 

The big news coming out of MLS this week is the potential
signing of Thierry Henry by the New York Red Bulls. Barcelona
vice-chairman Rafael Yuste says the team is putting the finishing
touches
on a deal that will allow Henry to come to the United States. Grant
Wahl believes Henry will fit
in well
in New York,
but will not immediately dominate the league as many would expect. Filip Bondy says
Henry is exactly what New York
needs to put itself back
on the soccer map
.
