Moerstedt off to Portugal with Germany U16s
U17 forward Max Moerstedt is preparing to link up with the DFB again on Sunday. The 16-year-old has been called up to U16 coach Christian Wück's squad for the upcoming UEFA development tournament in Portugal. The DFB juniors will first go up against the host nation on Wednesday (15:00 CET), before taking on England next Saturday. Both of the games will be played in Vila Real de Santo António in the south-east of Portugal at 15:00 CET.
Defeat for Richards and the USA
Bitter day for Chris Richards: the defender played for the US national team as they were beaten 2-0 in Canada in a World Cup qualifier. The defeat means head coach Gregg Berhalter's team, who remain in second place, now only have a one-point lead over fourth place. The top three countries will qualify automatically for the tournament in Qatar, while fourth place goes into the play-offs. The USA will go up against bottom-of-the-table Honduras in the night from Wednesday to Thursday (1:30 CET). Richard was in the starting XI against Canada but had to leave the pitch shortly before the end with a foot injury. Get well soon, Chris!
