For Every Fan of Humans and Soccer

A Note from Luke Lohr

This story is one that should be shared with everyone.

It is one of the most empowering stories in soccer. Bob Bradley took the job in Egypt after being unceremoniously removed from the US Men's National Team. After arriving there he set a standard for football, only to see the country's turmoil derail its domestic league and national team. Despite that, Bradley has not left and has seemingly found home. There is video of Bradley hugging parents who have lost children, visiting hospitals, walking the streets to speak to citizens, fans and human beings who need to be heard.

Bradley has clearly found a home in Egypt, but moreover he's proven once again that dedication and football are only a part of being a good person. Do yourself a favor and take a look.
