The Metros Croatia with Bob Iarusci Featured on TSN

Brian Williams narrates this great piece on how the Croatian roots run deep in the Toronto scene.

 
The North American Soccer League had as many as 24 teams during its run from 1968-1984, including the Toronto Metros, and legendary international soccer stars were imported to sell the game across the continent. But when Toronto’s team struggled, it was the Croatian community that stepped up.
