8 Days 'til Kickoff

Eric Hassli arrives

Day 8 in the Whitecaps FC "30 Day Countdown" campaign gives Vancouver an introduction to Eric Hassli.  The Whitecaps first ever designated player arrived on Wednesday evening at YVR.  Tired and jet-lagged, he went straight to his hotel for some much-needed rest.  It was then up and early Friday for a medical examination followed by an introduction to his teammates, a media conference and then training.  And that was all before noon!
