As a young whippersnapper, I played on a US Youth National Soccer Selection that played in the UK. Orr first stop on the trip was to play the Wales School National Team. The game took place in the National Stadium at Wrexham, where on our approach to the field, we were greeting by fenced in fans screaming at us and threatening to kill us. :-) Standard stuff for the spirited competition. A far cry from the genteel and soccer mom type culture of soccer that prevails in the US.hahaha. Anyway, we won the game on the day, and I scored a goal. I jumped up and down so much that everything is a gigantic blur. I dont remember anything, except my coach saying that people had said they had never seen anyone jump up and down so much. hahaha. Well that and at the post game dinner, the glum faces of the Welsh kids who had been beaten by of all things...Americans. I kind of felt sorry for them. I would love to return to Wales and see the sights, as a team bus on the way to games is probably not the best way to see a place.
