Attinella Trains With US National Team

June 10, 2011

Former University of South Florida goalkeeper, and current FC Tampa Bay netminder, Jeff Attinella trained with the United States Men's National Soccer Team Thursday morning at One Buccaneer Place in Tampa.

"I got to do something not many other players get to do," said Attinella. "It was an unbelievable experience for me. To get the opportunity to train with these guys and take shots from them, and work with Tim Howard, it's something I will never forget. It was an unbelievable learning experience."
