[TELEVISION WATCH] On Tuesday at 7 pm ET, ESPN’s newsmagazine E:60 recounts the story of Haiti's U-17 girls national team in the wake of the nation's devastating earthquake and how its players made a connection with their U.S. counterparts after their meeting in U-17 World Cup qualifying.

The earthquake hit last January. In March, Haiti's U-17s traveled to Costa Rica for the Under-17 FIFA World Cup qualifying play. In its opening match, Haiti lost to the USA, 9-0. Goalkeeper Alexandra Coby dropped to her knees in front of the goal and began to cry. U.S. goalkeeper Bryane Heaberlin of St. Petersburg, Fla., walked the length of the field to embraced Coby -- and the rest of her US teammates followed.

Moved by that moment, the 16-year-old Heaberlin made a commitment to help the Haitian U-17 team. With the support of family and friends, Heaberlin started a foundation, "Many Hearts One Goal," with the goal of bringing the entire Haitian U-17 national team to Disney World in July to participate in a soccer tournament.
