Soccer on the rise in North America

The New York Red Bulls of the MLS – whether they realize it or not – have embarked on a project that will change North American soccer forever.  Earlier this summer they signed French allstar Thierry Henry and recently confirmed that they have added the Mexican legend Rafael Marquez to their lineup.  For the New York Red Bull, at a micro-scale, this project involves creating a team that is built to make a championship run.  At a macro-scale, they are raising the bar for soccer in North America as a whole.  Marquez and Henry are both coming from arguably the best team in Europe: FC Barcalona.
