RCU Footnotes, Joe Gaetjens, and International Friendlies

Introducing RCU Foot Notes

RCU Technical Director Desmond Armstrong

Rocket City United has introduced a new feature on their website called Foot Notes, where RCU coach Desmond Armstrong will share tips for players and coaches. Check it out.

Joe Gaetjens: Man vs Myth

Gaetjens is carried off the field after scoring the game winner for the USA over England in 1950.

Joe Gaetjens is known for scoring the lone goal in the famous 1950 USA upset of England in the World Cup, but little else is known about the man. New ESPN Soccernet writer, Leander Schaeiaeckens, has written a terrific article dispelling many of the myths that have grown over the years about the Haitian born USA forward.

US v Holland at Steve McQueen's and other International Friendlies

The US will take on the Netherlands on Wednesday afternoon. A group of international soccer fans will be meeting at Steve McQueen's on Rt 72 in Madison (used to be Indigo Joe's) to take in the game and see how SMcQ's stands up in our first Huntsville area soccer bar review. Come join us!
