Remembering the greats who have laced it up in Texas. With the excitement surrounding MLS, it can be easy to forget the history of soccer in Texas goes back much further than to 1996. In a discussion with a number of respected soccer historians, we’ll talk about big moments like the 1994 World Cup and other oft-overlooked moments like Pele, Lionel Messi and other greats suiting up to play in Texas - plus how some of the greatest players from Texas got their humble start in the state and teams that represented Texas on the national stage long before the Dallas Burn - or even the San Antonio Thunder - existed.
