When the initial January camp roster was announced, Columbus Crew SC was the most well represented of any club team with Ethan Finlay, Tony Tchani and Wil Trapp all getting the call for the combined MNT/U23 MNT camp.
(Since then, the Chicago Fire have equaled that number. While Matt Polster was on the original squad, goalkeeper Sean Johnson was added and Stanford University defender Brandon Vincent was selected fourth overall by the Fire in the MLS SuperDraft).
Last week the Columbus trio held a Facebook live chat that received over 80,000 views and over 4,000 comments and questions from fans worldwide. The guys began the video stream with a quick discussion among themselves before taking a plethora of fan questions that covered a range of fun and interesting topics:
- What do they think of the LAFC joining MLS?
- When did they know they wanted to professional soccer players?
- What’s the favorite ice cream in Columbus?
- Who has the best hair?
- Who they would pick between their teammate Kei Kamara or FC Barcelona’s Lionel Messi?
- What was their most star-struck moment?
- What are their thoughts on Jordan Morris’ decision to sign with his hometown team in Seattle?
- Who’s the ‘ninja’ between them at FIFA 16?
- Who are the five best players in the world?
- And there was dancing that made it all worthwhile (10:14).
