FUEL Soccer Talk: Talkin’ Ali’s legacy; Red Bulls lock up Long; Amazing goal in any language

Here is to another great day of soccer!

Ali on her dreams, goals & legacy

Women’s World Cup champion Ali Krieger is one of the USA’s most “consistent defenders and a gritty ball-winner” and is just two games shy of 100 career caps. Before returning to the USA in 2013, Ali was the only U.S. regular playing her club soccer overseas where she had an excellent career and experience in Germany. A native of Dumfries, Va., Ali, 34, played at Penn State and currently plays for the Orlando Pride.
Ali recently joined Bobby Warshaw and Calen Carr to discuss her time playing a World Cup in Germany, what she hopes to leave as her legacy and when she realized she had the chance to become a professional player.

Getting Defensive: Red Bulls sign Long to multi-year deal

The New York Red Bulls have signed United States Men’s National Team defender Aaron Long to a multi-year MLS contract using Targeted Allocation Money, the club announced Tuesday. Long was an integral piece of the Red Bulls’ success last season, anchoring a Red Bulls backline that allowed just 33 goals in 34 regular season games en route to the 2018 Supporters’ Shield with league-record points (71) and wins (22), as well as appearances in the Eastern Conference Finals and Semifinals of the Scotiabank Concacaf Champions League.

What does this signing mean for the Red Bulls?

Amazing – in any language
