Transatlantic move for Woods
Chris Woods, the former England goalkeeper, has signed a two-year contract with the American Major League Soccer club Colorado Rapids. Woods, a member of England's World Cup squad in 1986 and 1990, spent the last five seasons with Sheffield Wednesday, and played for five seasons with Norwich in the First Division. In five seasons with Rangers he won four Scottish League championship medals. The 36-year-old keeper practised with his new team for the first time on Friday, and was expected to make his debut for the club against Tampa Bay Mutiny yesterday. Woods said that he was looking forward to the new challenge. "It's something that has always appealed to me, to play in America," he said. Borussia Dortmund successfully defended their German first division title yesterday when they drew 2- 2 at 1860 Munich to take an unassailable four-point lead over their nearest rivals, Bayern Munich, who lost at Schalke.
