Meanwhile in Queens...
While most of the American soccersphere was focused on a football stadium in Detroit Rock City last night, 39,000 + made their way to a baseball stadium in Queens to watch soccer. Only in America y'all.
Citi Field, home of the NY Mets, made its soccer debut last night when Greece met Ecuador in a 1-1 draw. It's almost always awkward when a soccer pitch is placed over a baseball diamond but this wasn't too bad. Or at least it wasn't as bad as what the Wizards had to deal with in CommunityAmerica Ballpark. Get used to seeing it though as you're going to see soccer at Citi again very soon.
