As part of our coverage of this summer’s FIFA Men’s World Cup, we’ll be providing these short daily videos. Each one will review what happened and preview what has yet to come. And just for our local audience, each preview will focus on those players who might figure in the future plans of Minnesota United FC.* Most will go directly to the Fifty-Five One Facebook page. However, as a special reveal for our first video, we’re posting the first one here for all the loyal readers.
For our first video we look back at why we’re turning our attention to Russia. Then we consider who among the host nation might appeal to the Loons. (Hint: It’s wingers!!)
*Note suggested focus players are based entirely on author research and not any hints, nudges, nods or tips from team officials.
