Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

Eagles Abroad is brought to you by Grubber, makers of fine sporting apparel. 

With the Eagles in Chicago and most competitions taking a break from regular play for the LV= Cup or the British and Irish Cup things are a bit more quiet for Americans overseas. One player that will be in action is Langilangi Haupeakui who was cleared of his two yellow cards given last one. One has to wonder how much his ethnicity and the supposed reputation of Polynesian players impacted the referees thoughts on his debut. Lastly, just as a reminder to those who are curious, it's our policy to keep track of players as long as they are U.S.-eligible, even if it's unlikely they'll play for the Eagles.
