1994 U.S. men’s team – Where are they now? (Sorber)

Today Mike Sorber is the assistant coach for the U.S. National men's soccer team.

Part of the program last Saturday night at Stanford Stadium during halftime of the Earthquakes/Red Bulls MLS game, was a tribute to the U.S. team that competed in the 1994 World Cup.

If there was a turning point in U.S. soccer this was it as the U.S. beat World Cup favorite Colombia and advanced out of the group stage for the first time since 1930. They then took on Brazil on the Fourth of July weekend at Stanford before a crowd of 84,147 in the old Stanford Stadium.

Eight members of that team showed up on Saturday.

On this blog you will find a picture of what those eight look like now, 17 years later, and a video of them.

(We’ll put these on eight separate posts.)

First up – Mike Sorber

Sorber was a midfielder who spent six seasons with the team appearing in 67 games including all four U.S. contests in the 1994 Cup. Afterward he played for Pumas in Mexico and then Kansas City, New York and Chicago in the MLS.

Today Sorber is the assistant coach for the U.S. National team.
