Moreover, at the ages of 33 and 32, respectively, Given and Kilbane likely saw their last opportunity to play in the World Cup robbed from them.

Unlike the hypothetical college applicant, waiting and working for four more years is not a luxury these soccer stars can count on. Scoring a shocking upset of France in the city of Saint-Denis was their final chance at playing in the world’s greatest sporting... (more)
