HOW SWEDE IT IS
Ex-FC Westchester standout Span scores his first goal in Sweden
FC Westchester alum Brian "Cobi" Span scored his first goal in the Swedish First Division, tallying for Djurgarden this in its 1-1 draw with Helsingborg this past weekend.
Span made his first start and second appearance with the European club since his winter signing out of the University of Virginia, where he spent two years as a key starter. He headed in a cross to pull Djurgarden even in the game's 74th minute.
Span played for FC Westchester for seven years, playing for the FCW 1991s, 1992s and the club’s Under-16 and U-18 teams in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy teams. He also spent time in U.S. Soccer’s U-17 Residency Program.
