Thursday kickaround: Bob Bradley, Jose Torres, Americans abroad, MLS, CONCACAF Champions League, U.S. women’s soccer team

*After a week of final negotiations, former U.S. coach Bob Bradley has reportedly signed a contract to guide Egypt’s national team. He will earn $40,000 per month on a two-year contract. His first test is Oct. 8 against Niger.

*U.S. midfielder Jose Torres will miss the remainder of Pachuca’s Apertura season with a broken foot — which means he’ll also miss the four American friendlies in October and November.

*Americans abroad:

GK Josh Wicks and Mariehamn vs. TPS (Finland)

F Jozy Altidore and AZ Alkmaar vs. Groningen (Netherlands)

For much more.....

*MLS’s rough week in the CONCACAF Champions League continued Wednesday with the Los Angeles Galaxy dropping a 1-0 decision at Alajuela (Costa Rica), FC Dallas losing at home to Pumas, 2-0, and the Colorado Rapids falling at home to Real Espana, 2-1. Overall, MLS clubs were 1-4-0 in group play. The Galaxy’s David Beckham is suspended for the next tournament match on yellow cards. Complete standings here.

*The USA women cap their two-game friendly series with Canada in Portland, Ore (11 p.m. ET, ESPN2).
