Soccer Stars On Sport's Past, Present, and Future

May 11, 2013

The New York Red Bulls are on a bit of a hot streak lately. The club's won five in a row and are now tied with the Houston Dynamos for first place in the MLS Eastern Conference, with a pivotal match-up coming up this weekend against the New England Revolution.

Joining the field against the Revs will be Dax McCarty. McCarty has been out since suffering a quad injury on April 20th against the Revolution. After pressing head coach Mike Petke to allow him to return, McCarty will be back in the lineup this weekend.

Recently, Playbook 360 talked to the Red Bulls star about the growth and evolution of US soccer and our place on the world stage. Plus, we caught up with retired American soccer greats Alexi Lalas and Cobi Jones at the 100th anniversary celebration of US soccer in Times Square to talk about the future of the sport.
