Let’s go on a quick journey. Lots of soccer was played last week, and the video clips have been gathered. Let’s run through them to see what developments there have been in the USMNT player pool:
Richy Ledezma had an eventful day against Charlotte FC. He started off with a lovely through-ball for an assist to Gabi Pereira.

Ledezma went on to score an unfortunate own goal in the second half. We have more clips of his full performance, thanks to @americanwigends.

Tough on the own goal but hoping he can use the rest of his play as momentum into the summer. pic.twitter.com/qBeHbQLKq1
Up north in Toronto, DeJuan Jones scored a goal for the Revs. USMNT goalkeeper Sean Johnson saved the initial shot from Carles Gil, but Jones was there for the follow-up.

DeAndre Yedlin served up a nicely-worked assist against Atlanta United, working his way past Andrew Gutman to set up Josef Martinez for the goal.

Matt Miazga will be disappointed after his headed clearance was immediately smashed home for a goal as FC Cincinnati faced DC United.

Chris Brady allowed three goals against Nashville SC (two of them penalties). Brady made a good save against Fafa Picault, but MLS MVP Hany Mukhtar scored on the rebound to complete his hat trick.
In case anyone wants to see the penalties, here’s the first and the second.
He can't be stopped. That's a hat trick for Hany Mukhtar!— Major League Soccer (@MLS) May 7, 2023
3-0 for @NashvilleSC at home. pic.twitter.com/qp83dw9tRj
Owen Wolff was involved in both of Austin FC’s goals against the Portland Timbers. He got a secondary assist on the first, and directly assisted the second on a curling cross into the box.

Jalen Neal was involved in the Colorado Rapids’ second and third goals as the LA Galaxy continued to be one of the worst teams in MLS. On the second goal, Neal stepped up to challenge the ball, but wasn’t able to stop the pass that opened things up for the Rapids.
It had to be Kevin Cabral. @ColoradoRapids double their lead against the Galaxy. pic.twitter.com/yz8gzBzMrl— Major League Soccer (@MLS) May 7, 2023
Ricardo Pepi scored a goal for Groningen, but they lost to Go Ahead Eagles, and they will officially be relegated from the Eredivisie after this season. We have clips of his full performance, thanks to @americanwigends.

Rokas Pukstas picked up an assist for Hajduk Split, as he slid to block a pass and it fell straight to his teammate, who finished.
