A friendly between Major League Soccer's New York Red Bulls and Sweden's Malmö FF was anything but friendly in the final preseason scrimmage at IMG Academy. The match was indistinguishable from a regular season game with the level of physicality displayed by the two top squads. However, Malmö was able to get on the board quickly when midfielder Erik Friberg netted a goal within the first two minutes of play.
Of the more than 100 IMG Academy soccer alumni playing in professional leagues across the world, Heath Pearce may have found the most success.
In a career that already includes stints in the Danish Superliga (Denmark) and Bundesliga (Germany), as well as 30-plus U.S. Men's National Team caps, Pearce currently stars as a back for the New York Red Bulls in the MLS. He credits IMG Academy, though, for providing the launching pad to his career.
