A Better Lens at Spanish Football

Alexi Lalas "Now & then" :-)

 

On my recent trip to  the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference in Boston, I got a chance to sit down and chat with Alexi Lalas, former player of USMNT, GM of LA Galaxy and a senior analyst for Soccer at ESPN. Alexi was also on the increasingly popular Soccer panel at the SSAC.

We chatted about the MLS, the recent win of US over Italy, the upcoming Euro 2012, SPain’s chances and some La Liga topics. Enjoy the great insights of Alexi. You may give him feedback directly at @AlexiLalas or  leave a comment here.

Forzafutbol thanks Alexi for spending time to do this interview.
