[NATIONAL SOCCER HALL OF FAME] Former national team forwards Joe-Max Moore and Peter Vermes were elected to the National Soccer Hall of Fame. Moore is the sole Player representative, elected in a runoff, while Vermes enters the Hall of Fame as a representative from the Veteran ballot. None of the candidates in the Builder category received the required amount of votes to be elected into the Hall of Fame this year.

Moore, a member of three U.S. World Cup teams, enters the Hall of Fame in his second-to-last year of eligibility on the player ballot.

No player received 66.7 percent of the vote required to be inducted on the first round of voting, Moore was elected in a runoff with Chris Armas, Marco Etcheverry, Shannon MacMillan and Cindy Parlow.

Moore made 100 appearances for the national team and his 24 goals rank fifth all-time in national team history.

His two goals gave the USA a 2-1 over Jamaica in 2001 that clinched qualification for the 2002 World Cup, spearheading the USA's best World Cup run in history.

Vermes scored 11 goals in 67 game during his national team that ran 10 years (1988-97). He played for the USA in the 1990 World Cup and captained it at the inaugural Gold Cup in 1991.

He also became the first American to play in the Hungarian and Dutch first divisions during his club career.

The location and date for the 2013 National Soccer Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony is still to be determined and will be announced at a later date.

    I enjoyed watching them both play. Had the pleasure of meeting Joe-Max Moore with Frankie Hedjuk outside the Nuremberg stadium during the 2006 WC in Germany just before the Ghana match. I've seen the USMNT play 63 matches and the Nuremberg match was my only loss. But meeting both gentlemen was great fun. They were very gracious and posed for a picture with my daughter and me that I have framed in my office. Congratulations Peter and Joe-Max and thanks for the memories.
