>> If the U.S. national team is not relegated to a World Cup qualifying playoff in November, the Americans will probably play two friendlies during the FIFA window Nov. 6-14, probably abroad. Potential opponents won’t come into view until after the October qualifiers as playoff matchups in Europe and elsewhere are sorted out.
>> Where would the United States play the home leg of a November playoff against Asia’s fifth-place finisher? No word yet. Travel would factor into the decision: The Americans would have to fly across the Pacific for the second leg at Australia or against Syria, which, because of safety issues, has been playing home matches in Malaysia. Presumably, the U.S. team would set up camp — and play the home leg — on the West Coast.
>> D.C. promoters are eyeing a friendly at RFK Stadium on Nov. 11 between El Salvador and either Peru or Bolivia. Peru is currently fourth in the South American qualifying table; the fifth-place side will enter a playoff against New Zealand during that November window.
>> Gordon Wild scored twice in the second half to increase his season total to five and Eli Crognale, brother of Columbus Crew homegrown Alex Crognale, added a late goal as third-ranked Maryland defeated Rutgers, 3-0, in a Big Ten match in College Park. The Terrapins (5-0-1, 1-0-1) have registered three consecutive clean sheets. They outshot the Scarlet Knights 25-3. Maryland will visit Penn State on Sunday.
>> Raheem Taylor-Parkes scored his first career goal and Sergi Nus deposited a late penalty kick as No. 12 Virginia defeated visiting Marquette, 2-0. The Cavaliers (4-0-1) will visit Virginia Tech for an ACC clash Friday.
