Although the final score was close, only 3 seconds into the
game, the Brits scored and seemed poised to capitalize on that
momentum. "After that early goal, we were hoping for a rout!" Mill
L.A.'s Team England captain Phil Crowe confessed. "But those young
whipper snappers on Team U.S.A. came fighting back."
Leading those young lads on Mill L.A.'s U.S.A. franchise,
Captain Shane Zinkhon, who has been kicking a soccer ball around
since age 3. He has also enjoyed a successful amateur career as a
sweeper back. The Yank captain gave a commanding performance and
frankly commented: "You want the bragging rights in a game like
this. With the Brits' first early goal, I'd be lying if I didn't
say I dreaded a long game ahead. We thought conditioning would come
into play more than it did. The truth is, we've got younger legs.
They were good, but we were better."
"The series is young," Crowe laughed. "We'll be back!"
