Soccer

Dutchman Ronald Waterreus is set to follow in the footsteps of new LA Galaxy signing David Beckham by embarking on a new chapter in his career as a goalkeeper for the New York Red Bulls. Beckham and Waterreus are unlikely to be the only familiar faces in the next season’s Major League Soccer though, as the league’s bosses are still on the lookout for more well-known players to give US soccer a shot in the arm. One such familiar face is likely to be the 34-year-old Mexican legend Cuauhtemoc Blanco, who is about to join Chicago Fire. The striker, who is best known for his spectacular and decidedly unique style, will be leaving his current Mexican club, America, at the end of the Clausura championship.
