Video Tuesday

I'll be back later with some of those teased goodies about Roma and Jozy later, but right now there's too much good stuff on the tube...

We spend so much time focused on goals of all sorts here, let's begin by not forgetting to spread some love to the keepers. From this week's MLS Saves of the Week nominees, my vote goes unreservedly to Sean Johnson. Where would even start in describing why that stop is utter top shelf?

Just ahead of World Cup, Lady Nat ace Abby Wambach becomes the latest soccer star to be featured in those crazy Sportscenter promos we all love. I think this one rates a B-, as obvious funny wears off quickly and the striker didn't get the best lines ever.

Will's going to be along later with an On Tap for the USMNT match, but let's give the Press Pass crew a chance to break down the Gold Cup semis as a whole.

Sticking with the Worldwide Leader, they kick around the ongoing Britain Olympic team kerfuffle.

Finally, ESPN gives us a swell look at the Barcelona youth set-up (which is, of course, essentially a Catalan-flavored Ajax recipe).
