A lot of you know that I live in North Carolina. I am also an avid autograph collectors. It is very rare when I get a chance to get some great autographs, but this weekend 5/26 – 5/30 the Team USA National Soccer team is coming to training in Cary, NC (about 30 minutes from my house). I don’t have any soccer autographs and I figure that this would be a great time to go out and get some.
Here is the list of players who will be there training from ussoccer.com website:
GOALKEEPERS (3): Marcus Hahnemann (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Tim Howard (Everton), Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake)
DEFENDERS (8): Carlos Bocanegra (Saint-Etienne), Jonathan Bornstein (UANL Tigres), Steve Cherundolo (Hannover), Clarence Goodson (Brondby), Eric Lichaj (Leeds), Oguchi Onyewu (FC Twente), Tim Ream (New York Red Bulls), Jonathan Spector (West Ham United)
MIDFIELDERS (9): Freddy Adu (Rizespor), Michael Bradley (Aston Villa), Clint Dempsey (Fulham), Landon Donovan (Los Angeles Galaxy), Maurice Edu (Rangers), Benny Feilhaber (New England Revolution), Jermaine Jones (Blackburn Rovers), Sacha Kljestan (Anderlecht), Robbie Rogers (Columbus Crew)
FORWARDS (3): Juan Agudelo (New York Red Bulls), Jozy Altidore (Bursaspor), Chris Wondolowski (San Jose Earthquakes)
I know next to nothing about soccer, but I do know that Landon Donovan and Freddy Adu are both big name attractions. I usually have a good track record of getting autographs at events, so I will do my best this weekend. Either way, if I get autographs or fail miserably, I will have some pictures of the event to share. If you live in the area it will probably be worth the drive.
