Miami fans have something to be happy about as Miami FC has signed former Miami Fusion player Diego Serna!
Serna, the leading scorer in the Miami Fusion's brief existence, signed with USL-1's Miami FC on Tuesday. The club did not release the terms of the contract.''Our expectations are high,'' Miami FC general manager Luiz Muzzi said. "Hopefully he can continue in the tradition of being a supreme goal-scorer.''
In addition to Serna, the Blues also signed Facundo Erpen, a former MLS All-Star, and brought back Brazilian midfielder Leo Inacio Nunes, who joined Miami FC during the 2008 season. For more check out The Miami Herald's Total Soccer
No word yet on Pedro Faife or Reinier Alcantara, the former Cuban national team members who have been in camp with the Blues after defecting last fall.
In a total heart breaker for USL fans Mexican team Cruz Azul defeated the Puerto Rico Islanders by a penalty shoot out. Regular time ended 3-1 as Paraguayan Pablo Zeballos, Javier Orozco and César Villaluz scored for Cruz Azul while Sandy Gbandi made it interesting for the Islanders. Sad to hear about the loss but it was a good run for the Puerto Ricans who made USL proud!
Some of you may have heard about the Seattle Sounders' Fredy Montero facing sexual assault allegations... Well, our friends at MLS en Espanol have a note on Cuauhtémoc Blanco , who if you see the picture to the left is caught humping the Fire Mascot! This Vulgar little act took place during the Chicago Fire vs NY Red Bulls game. "Sparky", the Fire mascot is in therapy from what I hear...
Talk about assaults, our friend and fellow Ultra Brian Corey has written an interesting piece called "Picking a Fight" where he hammers Miami FC USL foes with extreme prejudice! (j/k of course) Here is a little:
Austin Aztex – Besides the obvious in naming your team after an extinct race of people in a location nowhere near their empire the least Austin can do is spell the name correctly.
Portland Timbers – This f***ing team was awarded an MLS bid and not Miami! They must have given Don Garber some of that stuff they’re always smoking over there.
