Preki to the Hall of Fame

The greatest Wizards player of all time is now going into the National Soccer Hall of Fame. Today the announcement was made that Preki, and fellow 1998 World Cup veteran, Thomas Dooley. Preki earned 4 MVP awards and 16 all star appearances in indoor and outdoor soccer over his career. Before becoming "our hero" Preki spent years playing in England and in different indoor leagues befor joining the Wizards. When he retired he was MLS's all time leader in points (goals and assists). He's also the only American player to ever score a game winning goal against the Brazilian national team. After missing out previous years, Preki is going into the hall where he belongs. Congrats to Preki on this achievement.
