Gaetjens remembered

Joe Gaetjens, a Haitian immigrant, scored the greatest goal in American soccer history when firing home the winner against England at the 1950 World Cup in Brazil. He should have been a hero. Instead, he was abducted and died in a Haitian prison. Watch ESPN’s Outside The Line piece on Gaetjens and the goal  http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=5231841
