USMNT and MLS stars feature in Fight Against Racism campaign | THE SIDELINE

A whole host of US national team, MLS and world soccer stars have taken leading spokesman roles in a Fight Against Racism campaign and event put together by soccer blog Soccer Without Limits.

Among others, US national team veterans Oguchi Onyewu and DaMarcus Beasley will compete in a two-vs-two footvolley competition against the likes of Bayern Munich's Jerome Boateng and other European soccer stars. The goal of the star-studded event is to bring attention to the fact that racism is still an issue in the soccer world.

Earlier this year, US national team forward Jozy Altidore was subjected to racist taunts in Holland during a Dutch Cup quarterfinal match held in January.

A quick scan of the two videos on SWOL's site reveals the MLS and USMNT players involved in the efforts: Amobi Okugo, Terrence Boyd, Fabian Johnson, Joe Gyau, Ryan Smith, Danny Williams, Patrick Nyarko, Brad Guzan, Sacha Kljestan and Jermaine Jones.
