With the expansion Salsa of the American Professional Soccer League making its home at Cal State Fullerton, soccer fans in Orange County won't need to travel far to see quality matches. But the truth is they never really had to. For years, international soccer teams have played at Santa Ana Stadium, sometimes in important matches with plenty at stake. In January, Mexico's Club America defeated Costa Rica's Club Alajuelense, 1 to 0, before a capacity crowd at the stadium to win the club championship of the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Football.

The national soccer team of Honduras came into Friday night's opening match of the CONCACAF Gold Cup already in a bind. Its veteran goalkeeper was suspended for accusing a Southland promoter of offering him a bribe. Honduras solved that problem by knocking Canada's goalkeeper out of the game in the first half on an ejection and storming to a 4-2 victory before an announced crowd of 13,374 at the Coliseum. The crowd appeared to be half that.

Major League Soccer holds its eighth annual draft in Kansas City today, but whether D.C. United will exercise its right to the No. 1 overall pick or trade it away was the subject of considerable conjecture Thursday. University of Virginia forward Alecko Eskandarian is the consensus No. 1 choice, and has been praised by D.C. United Coach Ray Hudson. "Eski is the jewel of the draft," Hudson told the New York Times earlier this month.

As the referee's whistle ended a hard-fought soccer match at Oxnard's Del Sol Park, many in the crowd of 3,000 rushed the field--Mexican soccer fans in pursuit of their homeland heroes. Grown men strong-armed each other to take photos of the players. They ripped off their T-shirts in hopes of getting them autographed. They wanted to get close to players on the Mexican professional team Necaxa, one of three clubs undergoing preseason training in Oxnard.
