Rose City Roundup: Dos a Cero

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

The USMNT is going to Brazil!

Elsewhere in World Cup Qualifying, Bob Bradley's Egypt is the lone team with a perfect record. Now finished with their group stage, they await the draw for the play-off that will determine whether they go to Brazil.

In other non-Dos a Cero news, FC Dallas will join the Chicago Fire in playing in a stadium with "Toyota" in the name, two Timbers made the Goal.com list of the top MVP candidates, and Sir Alex Ferguson talks about his coaching blueprint.

NWSL is in their first ever off season and the trades are starting. The league also had a Waiver Draft this week and former Portland Thorn Nikki Marshall was the only player selected.

I think this guy is definitely onto something:

I have to admit, sometimes I love novelty accounts:
