Xander Bailey may suffer from cystic fibrosis, but that was the furthest thing from his mind this past weekend. Thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the 18-year-old was signed to play with his favorite MLS club, the Seattle Sounders, in their friendly against the Tottenham HotSpurs.
During a scrimmage on Friday, Bailey delivers the first pass in a sequence that led to a goal by Obafemi Martins. But the biggest thrill for the midfielder from West Virginia was simply sharing the field with USMNT members Clint Dempsey and DeAndre Yedlin.
