    Ron West Walnut Creek, Calif. Here's another cap question. Does a player get a cap if he is on the active roster, but remains on the bench for the entire match? Mike Woitalla: Ron, a player must get on the field during the game to be awarded a cap. FIFA, the world's governing body, monitors national federations' cap counts for record-keeping purposes. FIFA will confirm from official match reports that a player did indeed play, and that the game was a full international -- i.e. between two national teams rather than between a nation and a club or between Olympic ...

  • Q&A with the SA Editors: Sept. 28, 1999
    Steve Schermerhorn Deerfield, Ill. I am a former high school coach. A parent recently contacted me about scholarships. I remember a publication that listed all of the colleges and universities in the country that had soccer programs. It also listed the names of coaches, available scholarships, cost, etc. Was that publication Soccer America? If so, how may I attain a copy of the specific "college" issue. My sincere thanks for all of your efforts. Mike Woitalla: Soccer America's 1999 College Choice issue marked our 21st annual college guide, which includes the information you mention.
