The center of Foss Park on a summer Sunday afternoon is transformed into a soccer showcase. Players compete with each other with passion and brutish athleticism common to that found for soccer in the metric-ruled nations.
Most of the players in the league, though, came from different parts of Central and South America and many have played professionally in their home countries, said Jose A. Palma, from Lynn, who plays in the league.
Currently the league only plays with Spanish and Portuguese speaking people, he said. “It’d be great for the next year if we could mix it up and bring in other people.”
