Playing Against A World Cup Winner

0 comments suggest edit

LeBoeuf You Europeans ought to appreciate this one.

I’ve mentioned before that I joined a fairly competitive league here in Los Angeles. The other day I found out that the team we are playing this Saturday fields Frank Leboeuf. He played on the 1992 World Cup Winning France National team and was a former starter for Chelsea.

jrgen His pro career must be over, but it is still a surprise that he is in the same league. He still looks like one bad mofo. I also hear that Jurgen Klinsmann plays for an adult league team in Orange County. Seems like Southern California is the place to be if you are a retired World Cup Footballer. ;)

    UPDATE: Frank was hurt so he didn't play. Our goalies didn't show up so we ended up forfeiting. We played anyways using a goalie from another team and Won 4-2 which is a confidence booster.

    Actually there were no world cup in 1992.
    and France won the world cup in 1998
