Four professional soccer teams from three continents battle for international soccer supremacy during the inaugural Hawaiian Islands Invitational. During the tournament’s opening game, Korea’s Busan I’Park attempts to corral the dangerous midfield of Melbourne Heart FC, led by former MLS standout and Brazil native Fred, who staggers defenses with prolific playmaking and sparklers attached to his cleats. Thursday’s second matchup between Yokohama FC and 2010 MLS champion Colorado Rapids entices uproarious chants from the crowd as legendary Japanese striker Kazuyoshi “Kazu” Miura vaults headers into the airspace of American goalie Matt Pickens. On Saturday, the first-round victors will face off for bragging rights as tournament champions, and the consolation game awards third-place finishers and sentences losers to a year of peeling potatoes and freshly picked soccer balls.
