Former USMNT Forward Eddie Johnson

Planet Fútbol with Grant Wahl - November 1, 2018 - 35:57

Grant interviews Eddie Johnson, the former USMNT forward whose 15-year playing career ended in 2015 due to a heart condition. These days Johnson is working as a skills-development coach in Orlando for all ages, from kids to pro players like Christian Pulisic, Cyle Larin and soon Dom Dwyer and Sydney Leroux. Johnson provides his candid thoughts on what American soccer needs to tap inner-city kids like he was—and what sharing his life story could do for African-American kids around the country.
