Soccer Bowl (Cosmos vs. Silverbacks): SBI Live Match Commentary


ATLANTA– The New York Cosmos will be looking to cap their first season back in action with a championship as they take on the Atlanta Silverbacks in the Soccer Bowl (ESPN3.com, ESPN Deportes).

The Silverbacks won the NASL Spring title to earn the right to host the Soccer Bowl, while the Cosmos recently won the Fall championship.

SBI will be providing live commentary on tonight’s action so please feel free to follow the action here. As always, you are welcome to share your own thoughts and opinions in the comments section below.

      there aren’t traditional minor leagues in soccer. Soccer is not baseball. Here is the big distinction. Lower division clubs in soccer compete with MLS for a trophy (US Open Cup). That doesn’t happen anywhere else in American sports.

      But to answer your question. Why shouldn’t I care? If I’m from Atlanta i’m not supposed to support my local club because they aren’t in MLS? That’s a bit elitist isn’t it?


    • Zardoz

      David used to be one of those rednecks ranting about how he hates soccer up until he discovered MLS a year ago. Now he just rants about lower divisions.


  • Medicine Man

    The MLS All-stars play a European team in their mid-season exhibition. How about an NASL All-star team playing an MLS team?


    • pd

      or how about we just go back to east versus west, incorporate MLS and NASL and set up promotion and relegation once and for all?


      • Turgid Jacobian

        Wankity wankity wank. One day, maybe, not anytime soon. At all. At all.


      • Hal

        hopefully one day.

        need to educate American soccer fans more though. At least the ones that support MLS.


  • Mike R

    There is no more Soccerbowl the last real one was won by the Chicago Sting. Any others since then are fake


  • petedx

    Wow, turned it on right for the goal by Senna. Good goal. It should be noted the camera work is shaky and all over the place, it’s like watching a Paul Greengrass movie.


  • petedx

    Also I was excited that Pedro Mendes played for atlanta somehow. Not the same Pedro Mendes.


  • chris

    Embarrassing amount of diving and time-wasting by Cosmos in the 2nd half. Pathetic stuff.


    • Love it or leave it

      I wish this was on regualar ESPN and not just ESPN3/deportes

      I turned it on at the end, nice celebration ceremony at the end.

      Not sure if the game was in NY but if so they shouldve used the red bulls stadium (maybe)


  • Jan

    I was flipping the channels and came across this game and I at first thought it was a high school game the quality was so bad. Sad that a once great team that I loved to watch as a kid has sunk to this level. Sad, very sad.
