Despite a hard-fought second half effort, Miami FC was unable to defeat the Austin Aztex at home as a late penalty kick gave the visiting Aztex a 2-1 victory as the Blues prepare for an extended road trip. The Blues will travel out west to take on the Houston Dynamo on Tuesday, June 29 in the third round of the U.S. Open Cup. The match is set to begin at 8:30 p.m. EST.
ImageSusan Summons, Miami Dade College’s (MDC) women’s basketball coach and associate professor in biology, was recently selected to attend a historic reception at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., to announce the upcoming World Youth Peace Summit, a global initiative that focuses on issues in the world today that young adults face as scholar students, scholar student-athletes and scholar artists.

We saw two African teams go out today which was very disappointing. Nigeria’s game, which resulted in a 2-2 draw against South Korea, was not enough to put them through. It was an unusual group because all Nigeria needed to do was win 1-0 to go through to the final sixteen, but unfortunately they couldn’t manage it.

However, there was a lot of pressure on the African teams to go far in this tournament – which I was think was unrealistic. Nigeria were expected to get through to the semis - despite being ranked 21st in the world - so it was unfair to have expected them to go that far.

ImageToday saw another big upset with Serbia beating Germany 1-0. Serbia is a very good side and Germany struggled after Miroslav Klose got a red card. After Germany beat Australia 4-0 last week, everyone got very excited and said Germany will go all the way through to the final. But it's very important not to get carried away with ourselves here and favor the teams that did well early on. Spain lost to Switzerland, and Germany lost today – that doesn't mean that we won't see them in the next round, only that they will have to fight harder in their next set of matches to go through.
