Miami FC: Cubans should be ready to play this Saturday and more...

Since Miami FC had this week off there wasn't much to write about. But here is some information as we get ready for our match against the Carolina "Chickenhawks" to take place this Saturday at Lockhart Stadium:

Our good friend Robert Scorca witnessed a practice last week at Tropical Park and mentioned seeing former Haitian national team defender Stéphane Guillaume practicing with the team. After further investigation it appears Guillaume is only practicing with the team to remain fit and will not be part of the Blues this season. Some of you might remember Stéphane as he once played for the Blues starting in 2006.

Robert Scorca also writes a good piece over at the Miami Ultras site concerning the scrimmage between Miami FC Kendall U-18 and the U.S.A. U-17. For more on that click here.

Argentine defender Facundo Erpen might be Europe bound per the Miami Herald. This will be a great loss if it materializes

Cuban Players Reinier Alcantara (#23) and Pedro Faife (#13) should be ready to make their debut this Saturday if all legal issues are finalized this Friday. I'm looking forward to see what both of these players can do. Alcantara is remembered for scoring a goal against Mexico in the Gold Cup in 2007. Here is a video of that game and goal:

Stay tuned as Miami FC players will make appearances on TV and radio this week. We will keep you informed!

If Alcantara can do what he did in the Mexico vs. Cuba game for Miami FC that will definitely be good for Miami. I am syked to see them in July when I come down there for vacation!
