Just a reminder to all Showdown fans that this year’s eight-a-side street footie match kicks off tonight at 6:30pm in Sara D. Roosevelt Park. While we know that this year’s roster will be unique from the upcoming Los Angeles debut of the charity event, we’ve heard rumors that Claudio Reyna will be back in action for the NYC match. There’s also chatter that the following stars might be lacing up:
- Giuseppe Rossi (Florentina, Italian National team)
- Massimo Ambrosini (Milan)
- Ashely Cole (Chelsea F.C., English National team)
- Marco Belinelli (Chicago Bulls)
- Nate Robinson (Chicago Bulls)
- Sacha Kljestan (Anderlecht, U.S. National team)
The event is free (with ways of supporting the Steve Nash Foundation during the event, if you choose), so get down there early – the grandstand will be packed.
