Former US national team forward Brian McBride is coming out of retirement to join Wembley FC for their upcoming FA Cup run.
McBride, who turned 40 this past week, will join the squad along with several other notable former players. Ray Parlour, Martin Keown, Graeme Le Saux, and Claudio Caniggia are part of the club for the prestigious tournament.
Ian Bates is the team's head coach, David Seaman is the team's goalkeeping coach while former England boss Terry Venables is the technical advisor.
Wembley FC currently play in the Combined Counties League Premier Division which is the ninth tier of English soccer. Their home stadium is tiny Vale Farm with a capacity of only 3,000 spectators.
