The US Men’s Soccer team (pointing out that they’re men playing soccer seems to have been of vital importance back in the States) made a big impact in Brazil.
Who can forget John Brooks’ Tardelli-esque celebration following his goal against Ghana, or Jermaine Jones’ absolute belter against Portugal? (Hmmm. We’d forgotten already).
With the country having gone US men’s soccer crazy (even Barry Obama kept an eye out), this seems like the perfect time for the MLS to return after a two-week break.
What better way to announce your return and keep US men’s soccer fever alive, than by sticking one into the top corner.
That’s what Chivas USA’s Erik Torres did against Real Salt Lake on Sunday, channelling his inner Marco Van Basten and sealing three points for his side in the process. Tidy.
Want to see if Jermain Defoe can match Torres’s screamer against Chicago Fire tonight?
