League One Fun – Episode 43: Lansing Ignite Player Interviews

Lansing Ignite controls their own destiny. They are in the USL League One playoffs, but need a few points to guarantee they are home in the Semi-finals. In this episode Ira speaks with players Elma N’for, Tumi Moshobane and Nick Moon. We find out how they ended up on Lansing and talk about their positional play on the field – plus Tumi’s 90th minute game winner against Chattanooga last weekend.

We learn how lower division soccer can find talent missed by others, with Elma N’For and Nick Moon finding their way into the pro ranks in open tryouts.
