Former US national team captain Claudio Reyna and goalkeeper Tony Meola have been elected to the US National Soccer Hall of Fame. Former defender Desmond Armstrong was elected on the veterans' ballot and former women's national team coach Tony DiCicco on the builder ballot, the US Soccer Federation said Wednesday. Reyna, the US captain at the 2002 and 2006 World Cups, appeared on 96 percent of the player ballots cast by an electorate that includes Hall of Famers, administrators and media. Meola, starting goalkeeper at the 1990 and 1994 World Cups, was on 90 percent. Both were on the ballot for the first time. The induction date has not been set. US soccer no longer has a building for its hall. The one in Oneonta, NY, closed two years ago.
