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

Tab Ramos was the U.S. soccer player of the year in 1990.

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.)
