    I recently upgraded to window 10 using "Microsoft edge" browser. Since, I am not able to use full screen version of YouTube videos on this website. I am able to use full screen on other websites. Is there something Soccer America needs to do?

  2. Right Winger, May 22, 2016 at 11:15 a.m.

    I started to watch the NYC and Red Bulls last night thinking I would see a soccer game. If that was soccer I am the Queen of England. If this is supposed to be an example for our young players it is no wonder we have a problem in international play.
