Notes

Description
The United States men's national soccer team has a rich history dating back to the early twentieth century. The team, along with the sport, toiled in obscurity for decades but found its breakthrough moment in 1989 when the United States qualified for its first World Cup in 40 years. In A History of the U.S. Men's National Soccer Team, Clemente A. Lisi recounts the team's significant achievements and history-making moments, including its decisive 1991 Gold Cup victory, quarterfinal appearance at the 2002 World Cup, and memorable performance at the 2009 Confederations Cup. Beginning with the formation of the national team and continuing through the 2016 Copa America Centenario, each chapter includes game descriptions, fascinating background stories, and profiles of notable players from the era. A History of the U.S. Men's National Soccer Team features vintage photographs and exclusive player interviews that bring the struggles and triumphs of the national team to life. Including little-known stories from the team's early years and details from its recent past, this book will entertain and inform soccer fans of all generations. -- from Amazon.
