Eric Hassli Profile

NWSB insider and Vancouver Whitecaps blogger C-Mac tells us despite his size, Eric Hassli has a fine first touch and is capable of breathtaking skill at times, most notably with his dipping volley from the edge of the 18 yard box back across his body and into the top corner against rivals Seattle Sounders in 2012.
