A preview of our clash against the iconic New York Cosmos tomorrow at the Matchroom Stadium
The Cosmos are preparing for their second stint in the North American Soccer League this season after initially folding in 1985. Although they officially reformed in 2011 they return to the league this season and head across the pond this summer as part of their pre-season schedule.
After arriving in the UK last week, the Cosmos played their first friendly against Old Carthusians F.C and secured a 4-1. Sebastian Guenzatti, Ale Noselli and Marcos Senna grabbed the goals for the Cosmos.
Giovanni Savarese should have a full squad to choose from when they visit E10.
One To Watch
37-year-old midfielder Marcos Senna joined the Cosmos this year after an eleven year spell with La Liga side Villarreal where he made 292 appearances. The midfielder helped the Spanish side reach the Champions League semi-finals in 2005-06 and was eventually awarded the captaincy at El Madrigal. Despite being born in Brazil, Senna was granted Spanish citizenship and has gained 28 caps for Spain, including a starting place in the Euro 2008 final win against Germany.
