Umbro + Mickey Mouse

Disney teamed up with Umbro to produce a limited number of “Tuff Mickey” soccer apparel via Soccer World. The Mickey Tees and Mickey Badge Shorts were created for World Cup ’94. Once they were sold out…they were gone.

Does anyone remember this?

Alexi Lalas v. England

As everyone’s aware by now, the United States drew England, Algeria and Slovenia in the 2010 World Cup draw. The US has never played either Algeria or Slovenia. We’ve played England 10 times…lost 8…but won 2 memorable games (for Americans anyway). The US beat England in the 1950 World Cup off a Joe Gaetjen’s goal. The United States also beat England at the 1993 US Cup, with some help from the now slightly polished Alexi Lalas.
