Gyasi Zardes is trying to cope with expectations after breakout 2014

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno brings us the best moments from Week 7 in Major League Soccer.

As the 2015 MLS regular season unfolds, there's no letup to the challenges facing LA Galaxy forward Gyasi Zardes. But perhaps the biggest one of all is down to simple familiarity.

Zardes is coming off a stellar 16-goal season in 2014, and he scored the club's opener in the 2-1 MLS Cup final triumph over the New England Revolution. As the 23-year-old and his teammates prepare for Sunday's tilt against the New York Red Bulls, he knows full well that he is now a known quantity.

Zardes can see it in...

Morris impresses with U.S. team; Altidore struggling with Toronto

ESPN FC's Taylor Twellman questions the state of U.S. soccer after collegiate player Jordan Morris scored for the United States in a friendly against Mexico.

Last week' latest Dos a Cero win against Mexico provided several clues about where certain American players stand in Jurgen Klinsmann's eyes on the U.S. national team.

Now, with the 2-0 result in San Antonio squarely in the rearview mirror, the focus for national teamers shifts to back club action for the next month or so.

The U.S. squad won't reconvene until late May, ahead of early June friendlies against the Netherlands and world champion German. So Gold Cup roster hopefuls will have to catch...

Sacramento Republic's Rodrigo Lopez scores super Charlie Adam-esque goal

It's not often we stray into the wild and untamed confines of the United Soccer League (i.e., the third tier of the North American football pile) here on The Toe Poke, but we would be remiss not to share the following goal with you.

What you're about to witness is a 60-yard missile to rival the one scored by Charlie Adam from well inside his own half against Chelsea a week or two back.

The man responsible: Sacramento Republic midfielder Rodrigo Lopez, who glanced up, saw Whitecaps keeper Spencer...

Kaka scores wondergoal for Orlando City and the Colorado Rapids add a DP

Our experts weigh in on the motives behind a potential strike in the MLS.

This is normally the time on the calendar when thoughts turn to the best way to celebrate the opening weekend of the MLS season. For fans lucky enough to hold tickets to an opening week home match as well as those who watch the league from the comfort of home, the long-awaited return of games is an opportunity to get excited about the teams and storylines that will carry their interest from March until November.

Unlike most years, however, the prospect of a strike could delay the start of the season....

The story behind the greatness of the Austin armadillo soccer trophy

D.C. United defender Bobby Boswell, an Austin, Texas native, holds the armadillo trophy along with Austin Aztex owner and CEO Rene van de Zande.

February is normally the time when teams in Major League Soccer head off to sunny destinations in Florida and Arizona to play preseason tournaments and get ready for the upcoming season. This year, Austin, Texas, was the site of a preseason tournament, a first for the city.

Yet instead another humdrum affair among four teams -- D.C. United, Columbus Crew SC, FC Dallas and the hometown Austin Aztex of the USL Pro -- there was clearly an emphasis on claiming the top prize. Was it the satisfaction...

D.C. United wins a preseason trophy plus America's new star soccer couple

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno sits down with Sporting KC forward Dom Dwyer as he believes his side are preparing for a special 2015 MLS season, and proclaims he is quite the singer.

The countdown continues, with the planned start of the MLS season, March 6, creeping closer with every minute. As team preparations kick into high gear, coaches are fleshing out their best lineups in preseason matches from Arizona to Manchester.

Although preseason doesn't have any bearing on the upcoming season, there are hints of what's to come in each match, even it isn't always obvious at first sight.

With this period still being the offseason, the focus remains split between the on-the-field...
