A conversation with Charles Boehm, freelance writer for MLSsoccer.com and USSoccerPlayers.com. Charles also spent years living in Grenada with the Peace Corps- where USMNT are now.
A wind-ranging, somewhat philosophical conversation with one the most knowledgeable and enjoyable writers in the US soccer-world press box. Charles is a freelance writer contributing to MLSSoccer.com and USSoccerPlayers.com, and a Peace Corps volunteer living in Grenada.
