With several Scottish reporters out covering the U.S. training session, there was obvious interest in Jurgen Klinsmann and the players from Rangers - Carlos Bocanegra and Maurice Edu. Having said that, the journalists were equally intrigued with the presence of U.S. goalkeeper coach Chris Woods.
A former English international and now the goalkeeper coach at Everton, Woods signed for Rangers in 1986 and won both the Scottish Premier League and the Scottish League Cup in his first season. During that same season, Woods played 1,196 minutes from November to January without conceding a goal, setting a new British record that still stands today. By the time he left Rangers in 1991, he had won the Scottish Premier League and the Scottish League Cup an additional three times each.
Cleary, he left an impression.
