World Cup

Last Time Out (in Canada)

U.S. MNT Blog at related • 0 views
In the last blog we talked about the last time the USA played in Canada. The day was Nov. 9, 1997 and it was the game where the USA clinched qualification for the 1998 FIFA World Cup. Roy Wegerle scored twice and new Hall of Famer Claudio Reyna added another as the MNT booked its spot for the tournament in France.

The Only U.S. Win Against Brazil

U.S. MNT Blog at related • 1 view

In one of the biggest upsets in the history of the U.S. Men's National Team, the USA beat Brazil 1-0 on Feb. 11, 1998, in the semifinal of the CONCACAF Gold Cup. That game was the first U.S. win against the South American side, and today it remains the only time in 16 matches the U.S. has emerged victorious.

The Evolution of US Soccer Players in Europe: Part I

Letters From Vagabondia at related • 48 views
While players are now reporting to their European clubs' preseason training camps, we're all still following the movement of American players between various clubs. This got me thinking that after 20 years of following the fortunes of US players in Europe (9 of them as a reporter), its hard not to notice the evolution of the American presence in the European game.

A Look Back at Season Openers

Down the Byline at related • 0 views
With the 2012 season 4 days away for Sporting KC, I thought I'd take a look back at past year's season openers for the club. Some of the earlier matches are blurred together in a mix of games from before my college years but I'll add comments where I can.

1996 - KC Wiz vs Colorado Rapids 3-0

The inaugural game for the team saw the Wiz pull off the shutout win over the Rapids.

The Other Time When England Lost to the United States

EPL Talk at related • 0 views

When soccer experts remember the United States beating England, they almost always refer back to the 1950 World Cup when Joe Gaetjens got only the goal in the match to cause the biggest upset in the history of the tournament when the States won 1-0 in Brazil.

But there was another day that many England fans try to forget.

USA World Cup History (Part II: 1990 – 2006)

WorldCupBlog at related • 2 views

The first part of this USA World Cup history covered USA's1930 to 1950, including the third place finish and the famous win over England in 1950. But it would be 40 years before the USA qualified for another World Cup. They made it to Italia '90 partly thanks to Mexico being disqualified (for fielding overage players in Olympic qualifying) but very much thanks to this goal from Paul Caliguiri vs Trinidad & Tobago:

1990 World Cup in Italy

So the USA were back in the World Cup.

Should have gotten to this earlier, huh?

Giuseppe Rossi is a soccer player of (seemingly) quite exceptional ability. His two goals led Italy to a 3-1 win over the US in the first group match of the FIFA Confederations Cup on Monday and have led to the 22-year-old from Teaneck, New Jersey being branded a "traitor" by many US fans.

Norwich City and Queens Park Rangers are certainly not strangers to the Premiership, but they have been an eternity in the wilderness as far as their fans will be concerned. They both have very famous top flight games which are associated with the club with QPR turning over Manchester United in a New Years Day game back in 1992, and Norwich defeating Bayern Munich in Europe in 1993.

Dempsey, 27, says he's playing the best soccer of his career these days, and he has 11 games left to surpass McBride's goal mark for Yanks in a Premier League season. It seems like only a matter of time before Dempsey passes Roy Wegerle for all-time goals by an American in England. Dempsey has 34; Wegerle had 53.

The Best US Imports

Many nations have provided English football with players and the United States is no different. From Roy Wegerle to Brad Guzan, there has been a steady flow of Americans plying their trade across the pond, with goalkeepers being a regular export.

Juergen Sommer became the first American stopper to play in the Premier League when he signed for Queens Park Rangers in 1995 after serving a lengthy apprenticeship in the lower leagues.
