During last week’s England/USA friendly John Harkes broke the news that Brian McBride has decided to leave Fulham and return to Major League Soccer. I’ve always been a big fan of McBride’s commitment and fearlessness. My favorite goal of his was, of course, the first goal against Mexico in the 2002 World Cup round of 16 match.
After returning from a devastating knee injury this season, McBride led Fulham on an unprecedented run to avoid being relegated. In a classy move Fulham posted a tribute video set to the tune of the Foo Fighters’ My Hero. Check it out.
