Conversation with Coach Gambetta

Just got off the phone with Vern. He asked, "Hey Joe- great post on the ACL protocol. I'm curious- how many girls soccer ACL injuries have you had in the 26+ years at YOUR school."
Feeling pretty stupid, I said, "0". And only 1 in boys soccer.
In all fairness, I don't think I have very much to do with that though. Our coaches are Portugese & Columbian. Most of our players are Portugese, Columbian, and Brazilian. They bring a lot of their cultural idiology to the sport.
Antonio, Joe, Jack, Gustavo- may you never be brainwashed.

Joe what do you think they (coaches) do differently? Do these countries also see a low amount of ACL's relative to the US?
