Tony Beltran on Sebastian Jaime: "He has so much heart"


As a defender it really pumps me up when I see a guy like Sebastian Jaime just running for lost causes, and winning balls and putting pressure on center backs.

Abdoulie Mansally makes FIFA 15 Team of the Week


Well, this is a surprise. Abdoulie Mansally, who had a pretty good game last weekend, made EA Sports' Team of the Week for FIFA 15. He's on the bench.

Now, this comes in a bit of a lull — we have MLS, some Eastern European leagues, and a handful of others playing right now. But in spite of all that, this is still a cool plaudit.
