Meneses & Co Soldier On In SoFlaAMATUER STRIVERS FLORIDA SOCCER SOLDIERS PULLED OFF A HUGE CUPSET IN THE FIRST ROUND OF THE 2019 U.S. OPEN CUP AGAINST ALL-PRO MIAMI FC, THANKS, IN LARGE PART, TO A PAIR OF CRAFTY VENEZUELANS.
Daniel Godoy brought fellow Venezuelan Daniel Meneses to South Florida. Now it’s Meneses who has Godoy going places.
“I’m lucky to have the kind of players who are that committed and that proud,” Godoy said. “When you have dreams of living and breathing football, you’re always looking to reach as high as possible.”
Playing on the road in North Carolina on Tuesday May 14th, Godoy and Meneses team up to lead all-amateur underdogs Florida Soccer Soldiers (USASA) against Charlotte Independence (USL) in the Second Round of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup.
A Near Miss
“I felt a void when I could not finish after the effort of all my teammates, but the moment I failed the penalty I came back because I had the support all my teammates,” Meneses said, still remembering, nervously, that missed spot kick.
