Soccer is one of the most popular sports in the world, and it continues to gain fans in the U.S.
Aristides Polio is the new head coach of the Arkansas State University Men’s Soccer Club. He said the main things for the team are to focus on step by step each game and make sure everyone has endurance to keep up.
The ASU soccer team is already warmed-up and taking part in competition though is still in the process of forming. They participated in a tournament at Mississippi State during Sept. 28 to Sept 30.
Kyle Stroup is a junior from Jacksonville, Arkansas, his position is midfield.
The team has not only American players, but also many international players who study in ASU. Ibrahim Tayfur is an international student who came from Turkey. He is the goal keeper and the captain of the team as well. He said, “we need to get chemistry, to know each-other well! We need more practice than we can win”.
Everyone volunteers on this team, even though nobody gave up their dreams. For now the club team is using the 2nd field at the Rugby complex, but I know they hope to eventually have their own soccer field one day. It’s still a young team, but they are already on the road, and going as far as they can.
