The return of Nogueira

There's more in this picture than just a U20 forward taking a practice turn as goalkeeper. Casey Nogueira is the daughter of the foremost goalkeeper in indoor soccer history, Victor. Incidentally, Victor had his own successful stints as a forward, too.
The U20 women's team is down in Mexico for their World Cup qualifying,
playing today versus Cuba.

Can the Galaxy sign Victor to a contract? He'd be an immediate upgrade over Cronin, even at his advanced age.

I remember living in northeast Ohio during the glory days of the MISL. The Cleveland Force would often sell out the 20,000 seat Richfield Coliseum, while the Indians and Cavs were drawing 5000 fans per game.
