Shaka Hislop signs with MLS
Shaka Hislop who was the man of the match in Trinidad’s improbable draw with Sweden in the first match of the World Cup will leave West Ham United of the EPL where he was the first choice goalkeeper and sign with MLS this week. He will be allocated to FC Dallas. Hislop led West Ham to the FA Cup final this past season where they lost to Liverpool.
Hopefully, this will be first a several MLS int’l signings to raise the level of play in the league following the USA’s world cup debacle.
