    Nahas, Gborway, Pyeka, Rogers and players, as you can see a lot of words of encouragement came from commentors so I'd not do the same lest you guys then "fall asleep" the way it's back home.

    great article. Soccer is the greatest because it's a break from stress, work ect.. For some a break from violence and poverty. It's a way of life

    Great article. I am not a refugee nor have anything so tragic in my past, but I did grow up playing soccer. I have played soccer in Mexico, Argentina, California, and Utah. Everywhere I have played, it is the same feeling. Great sport.
