Description

Stateside Soccer shines new light on the rich history of a sport too often mistaken as a recent import to the United States. This definitive history begins in the American Civil War era, takes in soccer's first golden age in the Roaring 20s, the NASL, the 1994 World Cup, and comes up to date with the USWNT's three World Cups and four gold medals.
