Lombard’s Eliason earns MLS tryout
A highlight-reel goal is still paying dividends for Matt Eliason.
The Glenbard East graduate, whose bicycle kick goal scored in the Messi and Friends exhibition at Soldier Field in July gave him international attention in the soccer world, will take part in a tryout with the New York Red Bulls of Major League Soccer next week.
The former Northwestern forward, who is the program’s all-time leading goal scorer, will play with the Red Bulls’ reserve team for a week starting on August 27 with the hope of earning a professional contract. The Red Bulls are the team of Thierry Henry, who assisted Eliason’s YouTube-famous goal.
