Former ODP Player Joe Scally on the USA Roster for World Cup Qualifiers

By Randy Vogt, Director of Public Relations, Eastern New York Youth Soccer Scally_for_WebAssociation 

November 11, 2021-The US Men’s National team has called up 18-year-old Joe Scally for important World Cup qualifiers starting tomorrow night in Cincinnati against Mexico. The Lake Grove resident currently plays for Borussia Moenchengladbach of the Bundesliga after signing as a 15-year-old with NYCFC of Major League Soccer.

US Men’s National Team coach Gregg Berhalter told Soccer America, “He’s played in another five Bundesliga games (since not being called up last month) and in a cup game in which they beat Bayern Munich, 5-0. He had an assist the other day. And when we see him going against Leroy Sane or Alfonso Davies on the side, he’s being tested and he’s standing up to these tests.”
 
Joe first registered in the Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) when he was six years old. He played for Long Island Junior Soccer League (LIJSL) teams Sachem Starburst, Sachem Falcons, Sachem Lynxes, Sachem Destroyers and the Mastic Destroyers. He also competed for the Eastern New York Olympic Development Program (ODP).
 
This is not Joe’s first time wearing the red, white and blue as he represented the United States Under-15s and Under-17s despite being three years younger than his teammates in some cases.
 
Joe’s mother, the former Margaret Peragine, also made news as a teenager as she played on the LIJSL’s Sachem Tomahawks, who won the 1987 Patricia Louise Masotto Cup as Girls-Under-16 national champions.
 
With approximately 100,000 youth soccer players––both boys and girls––and more than 25,000 volunteers, the non-profit Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) stretches from Montauk Point, Long Island to the Canadian border. Members are affiliated with nine leagues throughout the association, which covers the entire state of New York east of Route 81. ENYYSA exists to promote and enhance the game of soccer for children and teenagers between the ages of 5 and 19 years old, and to encourage the healthy development of youth players, coaches, referees and administrators. All levels of soccer are offered––from intramural, travel team and premier players as well as Children With Special Needs. No child who wants to play soccer is turned away. ENYYSA is a proud member of the United States Soccer Federation and United States Youth Soccer. For more information, please log on to http://www.enysoccer.com/
