Romario Williams is out for the rest of Atlanta United’s 2018 season, per a club announcement on Monday, November 19. He sustained an injury in training prior to the second leg of Atlanta’s Eastern Conference semifinal series against NYCFC, and that has since been diagnosed as ligament damage in his left ankle - sufficient to see Williams ruled out of any further participation in his team’s playoff run. Williams role for Atlanta this season was mostly as a lightly-used back-up forward. He made 17 appearances, but clocked only 211 minutes. He scored his one and only goal in MLS this season back on April 7 against LAFC. Williams joins full-back Mikey Ambrose on the list of Atlanta players definitely

ESPN Atlanta United boss Gerardo "Tata" Martino gave no definitive answer when asked on Friday about his reported link to the Mexico managerial job. "I have nothing new to say about that," Martino said, according to the Atlanta-Journal Constitution. "I did see what [MLS commissioner] Don Garber said yesterday. I'm still contractually linked to Atlanta United." Speaking to reporters at the Soccerex conference in Miami on Thursday, Garber congratulated Mexico for their "aggressive move" for Martino. It has been widely reported that Martino -- who recently won MLS Coach of the Year -- would take over at Mexico at the end of the MLS season, but neither the Argentine coach nor El Tri have confirmed

It’s been no secret that Gerardo “Tata” Martino was probably going to leave Atlanta United after his second season in charge of the bunch. There’s little doubt Mexican is knee-deep in its golden generation compared to the USMNT, which is just reaching the potential of it with Christian Pulisic, Josh Sargent, Weston McKennie, and Tyler Adams. After these quotes, it’s very difficult to believe Mexico’s next coach will anyone but the successful Argentina, Barcelona, and Paraguay boss.

LONDON — It is clear that the U.S. national team has been in quite a strange place for the last 13 months. And not good, strange. Since Dave Sarachan took charge on an interim basis last October after the huge blow of not making the 2018 World Cup, the U.S. have played friendly and friendly and used over 50 players to try and find out whatever they can about the next crop of talent. But what is the end game? What direction are the U.S. heading in? Against a reserve England side at Wembley on Thursday, Sarachan’s youngster started slowly and never fully recovered despite Christian Pulisic and Bobby Wood going close to scoring in each half. They were outclassed throughout the 3-0 defeat and their
