Happy Friday! Let’s take a stroll around the North American soccer block, shall we?


Brenden Aaronson heads to the Prem

Former Philadelphia Union star Brenden Aaronson is off to the English Premier League, having completed a move out of Red Bull Salzburg to join Leeds United.

With 13 goals in 66 matches to his name in the Austrian Bundesliga, Aaronson now joins up with fellow American in Leeds manager Jesse Marsch.

If you want to learn a little bit more about the 21-year-old, here are 10 key facts about the U.S. forward.


Canada cancels Iran friendly

Canada Soccer has cancelled their upcoming friendly against Iran, after facing negative reaction surrounding this World Cup preparation match.

While no new opponent has been identified as of yet, Canada Soccer also added later in the day that they are “working diligently to find an alternative opponent.”

Canada has a pair of Concacaf Nations League tilts against Curacao and Honduras coming up in June, too.


(Prime)blue is the colour

Once again, Major League Soccer and adidas have teamed up to produce a new series of kits using recycled marine plastic waste.

They’ll be worn league-wide on May 27 through May 29, as fashion and social action meet on the pitch once more.


The best way to celebrate your match-winning save?

Take a bow, lad.


Gotta clown on ’em

Lower-division supporters, and clowning on first-division teams: Is there a better match?

Not if you’re a San Jose Earthquakes supporter, we’re sure.

Hang in there, Sacramento. Your time will come.
