Another week, another batch of interesting news from North American soccer. Let's take a look at the most important ones.

Giorgos Giakoumakis did not shy away from sharply criticizing Major League Soccer after making a big-money move to Liga MX giants Cruz Azul.

“I love working and playing for these teams because the expectations are high,” he said. “The motivation has to be there all the time. And losing sometimes is not OK. That's a bad thing in MLS. It's OK to lose a few games – and I hate it.”

According to The Athletic, New York Red Bulls midfielder Frankie Amaya will move to Liga MX. The 23-year-old is said to be close to joining Liga MX team Toluca.

The deal is said to be worth up to $4 million each, as Amaya has performed outstandingly for the Red Bulls since joining the club in 2021.

MLS legend Kei Kamara scored his 145th goal this week, making history with a late equalizer for LAFC against Austin.

With this goal, Kamara joins Landon Donovan on the all-time MLS goalscoring list and is now in second place.

The United States women's national team has dropped to fifth place in the latest FIFA rankings, their lowest placing since FIFA began ranking women's teams in 2003.

Before 2024, the U.S. women were never ranked lower than second in the world, but now they have fallen three places in six months.

Houston Dynamo have signed striker Ezequiel Ponce for a reportedly record deal from AEK Athens, the club announced this week.

The Argentine shone with the Greek team last season, scoring 16 goals in 38 appearances before moving to the MLS this summer.

However, Ponce will not be able to make his debut until the summer transfer window opens on July 18.
