News from US Soccer today that less than one week after a horrific car accident USMNT striker Charlie Davies continues to improve:
News remains positive on the condition of Charlie Davies, who continues to improve and has been moved out of the Intensive Care Unit at Washington Hospital Center in Washington, D.C. Davies has been able to receive and speak with visitors. He will have surgery early next week to repair a broken left elbow, and may require operations to deal with facial fractures.
Even with the Yanks broken up until November 18th and back on club duty, the minds and thoughts of the USMNT remain on Charlie:
- Iceman Stu Holden carved a pumpkin for Chuck Deezy.
- Brian Ching marveled at the continued and tremendous support.
- Meanwhile, Roger and Sacha Kljestan have decided to wear CD9 on their wrists in their forthcoming games.
- Up in Foxboro yesterday during the Revs-Fire draw, another tribute 9th min tribute orchestrated by a man named James on Twitter and the American Outlaws Boston. (10/17)
- Chivas USA supporters threw up the 9s as well over the weekend during their match with the San Jose Quakes. (10/18)
- Charlie’s club team, Sochaux, hopefully gave CD9 a boost when they bested previously unbeaten Lyon in their first game after the break. Before the match, players donned shirts that read “Get Well Charlie” and fans paid tribute in the stands throughout. (Here is the match report from the Soxchaux website.

USMNT fans and players, something special.
