Plans for Davies to appear for Sochaux's at season's end shelved

Charlie Davies' hopes of playing for the U.S. at this summer's World Cup have taken a huge hit after the plan for him to play some part in his French club Sochaux's last two games of the season was shelved.

"He won't play again this season in Ligue 1," Sochaux president Alexandre Lacombe told local paper Est-Republicain on Thursday. "He is fine and that is the main thing. Since leaving his wheelchair, he has gone through a lot to get fit again. But it's a bit early to say when he will play again."

Davies had hoped to play for the reserve team at the end of April, but he has yet to take part in any contact exercises in training and last week had tests after feeling pain in his stomach. They came back clear. "It's been very hard for Charlie, as every time we up the workload, he gets very tired," added Sochaux coach Francis Gillot to L'Equipe.

U.S. striker Davies injured in fatal car crash

ARLINGTON, Va. -- U.S. soccer forward Charlie Davies was in surgery on Tuesday afternoon after being involved in a severe one-car accident on the George Washington Parkway in Virginia during the early hours of Tuesday morning.

There was a fatality in the accident, said U.S. Soccer spokesman Neil Buethe. He added that Davies was in stable condition and that his injuries were not considered life-threatening.

No other U.S. players were in the car. The U.S. team, which qualified for the 2010 World Cup on Saturday in Honduras, is in Washington, D.C., for its final qualifier on Wednesday night against Costa Rica.

Finally found some nice highlight: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GADsTA4DQlE

If he keeps that up, hopefully he'll make the starting 11! The more US players get game time over seas, the better our chances in the World Cup next year!

USA! USA! USA! [Jun. 24th, 2009|03:53 pm]
Fans of U.S. Soccer

Amazing game, awesome win for the guys. This already has to be ranked among the USA's most impressive and monumental wins ever. Great game guys, everyone came together, played hard, played well, mostly, and showed no signs they are even the same team that was on the field against Italy and Brazil. This is the team spirit I want to see in the Confederation Cup Championship, and in the World Cup next year.

Mexico had best watch out, we're rocking Azteca in August.
