U.S. Needs Goalie

By Compiled From Wire Services

Tony Meola, the starter for the United States in the 1990 and 1994 World Cups, may play his first game for the U.S. in more than 3-1/2 years when it meets Sweden in an exhibition game Jan. 24.

Meola became the only goalkeeper on the roster after Mark Dodd was cut because of a strained quadriceps. U.S. coach Steve Sampson said, however, he intends to add another goalkeeper to the roster next week.
