When Bruce Murray and John Kerr were playing on teams together while growing up in Maryland, they probably never expected to be teammates on a professional soccer team in England.
But they are, playing for Millwall in southeast London in the English League's First Division. Along with goalkeeper Kasey Keller, the former members of the U.S. national team form a three-man American Foreign Legion.
Keller has been Millwall's starting keeper for the last year, Kerr has been with the team since January, and Murray signed on in August after the U.S. Soccer Federation decided not to renew the contract of its all-time leader in scoring (21 goals) and games played (92). Keller and Kerr are first-team regulars.
