Goalkeeper Tony Meola was included in the U.S. roster for next week’s exhibition game against Jamaica in Cary, N.C., and will make his 100th international appearance.
The 37-year-old Meola was the starter for the United States at the 1990 and 1994 World Cups and was the No. 3 goalkeeper for the Americans at the 2002 tournament. Meola, who plays for Major League Soccer’s New York Red Bulls, has not appeared for the national team since May 16, 2002, when he came in after Kasey Keller got hurt in the 51st minute of an exhibition game against Jamaica.
Jah-mek-ya! Go Meola. Read all about it >>
In a way I wish he’d be on this summer’s team as well… if only because of his experience.
