All you youth players out there imagine you get the call to train with the worlds best player and his national team...unbelieveable.

I was wondering how this would work out...he seems serious and respectful. I say good luck Ochocinco. I wish he would have given me a month to train him before tryouts. $5 says I could have had his technique hugely improved and more than ready for the tryouts. Also shout out to Fogo De Chao one of the most baller Churrascaria's in America.

There is no way I could live with myself if I didn't post this. The man who they didn't think would walk again and certainly not play soccer...Charlie Davies with 2 goals on his MLS debut. If you don't shed a tear watching this you must not know the story.

If my U10 girls did this I'd be embarassed...sorry Chichizola but this is too funny. On a side note I guess this is just more proof that Argentina can't produce keepers ;)

Friday Night April 1st we will be bringing Pelada The Movie to Memphis. The screening will be outdoors at The Avenue Carriage Crossing in Collierville. The grassy area next to Soccer USA will be where it will be shown and below are event details.
6:00pm - Arrive to claim your seats
Dusk - the movie will begin...
Immediately following the movie, we will host Peladas on two fields. one field for Adults and one field for Youth. Bring your soccer equipment and ball. Goals will be provided. Below is a description and link to the trailer
Two players. 25 countries. One game.
Away from professional stadiums, bright lights, and manicured fields, there’s another side of soccer. Tucked away on alleys, side streets, and concrete courts, people play in improvised games. Every country has a different word for it. In the United States, we call it “pick-up soccer.” In Trinidad, it's "taking a sweat." In England, it's "having a kick-about." In Brazil, the word is “pelada,” which literally means "naked"—the game stripped down to its core. It’s the version of the game played by anyone, anywhere—and it’s a window into lives all around the world.
Pelada is a documentary following Luke and Gwendolyn, two former college soccer stars who didn’t quite make it to the pros. Not ready for it to be over, they take off, chasing the game. From prisoners in Bolivia to moonshine brewers in Kenya, from freestylers in China to women who play in hijab in Iran, Pelada is the story of the people who play.
