Premier League club Stoke City has reached the FA Cup Final, the biggest single match in English club soccer. The match will be played this Saturday at Wembley Stadium in London against Manchester City. It wasn't long ago however, that Stoke was eliminated from the FA Cup, largely due to the exploits of current Puerto Rico Islanders attacker, David Foley. Foley's goal in January 2009 helped send League One (Third Division) Hartlepool past the Premier League team in the FA Cup Third Round. The goal against Stoke, was Foley's second that season versus a Premier League club, as he scored against West Bromwich Albion in the Carling (League) Cup earlier that season.
Since moving to the Islanders, Foley's goal scoring exploits have continued against top division sides. Last season, he record two goals over two legs as the Islanders eliminated Landon Donovan, David Beckham and LA Galaxy from the CONCACAF Champions League.
Here are David Foley's FA Cup memories:
David Foley and the Puerto Rico Islanders will continue their quarterfinal CFU Caribbean Club Championships Series with Walking Bozy of Surinam this Saturday, May 14th at 4:30pm at Juan Ramón Loubriel Stadium in Bayamón.
