My ankle is getting better and I was able to run today for the first time. My date of recovery which is six weeks seems to be going by real fast and I get the feeling I will be back even sooner. I was trying to make it back for this weekends game but that didn’t happen. I wanted to get back and tackle the guy that tackled me LOL (just one tackle).
I am looking forward to the season and will be fit for the second game against LA. I would say the first game but my red card in the playoffs last year against Colorado rolls over to opening day of the 2007 season.
On another note watching the U.S. game against Ecuador I was taken back by how far U.S. Soccer has come over the years.
The U.S. now has guys playing in England, Germany , Holland and these are some of the biggest soccer playing countries in the world. I am also impressed with how young the U.S. players are.
If the U.S. is to win a World Cup I think the next one in South Africa is it’s best shot.
I have represented Liberia internationally and I must say it would be nice if we could get a “friendly” between Liberia and the U.S.
It would be great for both countries with all the historical ties it has with each other.
U.S. Soccer, Liberian Football Federation lets make this happen.
Till next time enjoy your family and football.
