Soccer player who helped lead U.S. to greatest upset dies
Harry Keough, who died Tuesday at age 84, was part of what many regard as the greatest upset in soccer history.
Keough was a defender on the U.S. national team which scored a 1-0 victory against England in the 1950 World Cup.
Keough had one goal in 19 appearances for the U.S. from 1949-57, and started all three games for the Americans at the 1950 World Cup. He was named captain when the U.S. played Spain in the World Cup opener.
Keough, a native of St. Louis and father of Ty Keough, was featured in the 2009 soccer documentary "A Time for Champions," a look at the U.S. upset victory over England and his coaching career at St. Louis University.
