MOST COMMENTED

[NATIONAL SOCCER HALL OF FAME] Former World Cup players Peter Vermes and Joe-Max Moore were inducted into the National Soccer Hall of Fame in ceremonies at Kansas City's Sporting Park before the USA-Jamaica game.

Vermes grew up in New Jersey, where he played at Rutgers University, but he has made his home for the last 13 years in Kansas City, where he played for the Wizards and currently coaches Sporting KC.

U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati praised Vermes' work on U.S. Soccer's board of directors for 20 years, saying he did not know of anyone in his 30 years of work with the federation who has been so accomplished as a player, coach and administrator as Vermes, one of the first Americans of the modern era to play abroad and a member of the 1990 World Cup team.



Moore was a member of three World Cup teams and finished with 100 caps. He played six seasons with the New England Revolution in MLS but otherwise spent his entire career abroad in Germany, Ecuador and England.

Moore's father, Carl, was an oil tycoon and owner of the NASL Tulsa Roughnecks and build a full-length field in their backyard for his son to play soccer.

The Moores later moved to Southern California, where Joe attended UCLA, playing on the 1990 NCAA championship team that included five U.S. World Cup players: Brad Friedel, Cobi Jones, Mike Lapper and Chris Henderson and Moore.

Moore is not currently involved in soccer except to help coach his son's team, but he told reporters after Friday's Hall of Fame ceremonies that his induction inspired him to consider getting back involved in the game.
