It looks like a change of scenery was a good thing for Brek Shea. The U.S Men’s National Team pool player notched an assist in his debut with Birmingham City on Saturday. The 24-year-old had left Stoke City in search of more minutes and moved to Birmingham last week on an emergency three-month loan.

Meanwhile, the playoffs race is heating up in Major League Soccer. The Los Angeles Galaxy went into their matchup against San Jose looking strong, but came away with a disappointing draw, giving the Seattle Sounders more room atop the West. A questionable late call allowed the Philadelphia Union to equalize and draw to the New York Red Bulls. And with a points split, the Colorado Rapids snapped a dismal seven-game losing streak as the Portland Timbers inched closer to playoff position.

And it seems like it’s back to business as usual for the U.S. Women’s National Team these days. They slaughtered Mexico on Saturday, scoring eight unanswered goals and giving Hope Solo the new all-time shutout record for the USWNT.
