U.S. National team defender Desmond Armstrong, who yesterday signed a one-year contract with the Maryland Bays of the Professional American Soccer League, last night agreed to terms with Santos of Brazil. He leaves today for four months with the internationally respected team.
"Santos had offered me a full year contract with an option to buy me at the end of the year earlier," said Armstrong, who will begin playing with the Bays in June. "It is one thing to go there to play for four months and another to go for a year. We've worked it
out. They'll allow me to play for the U.S. National team in our game against Argentina and in the North America Cup game against Mexico and there is a chance I can also play in the U.S. game against Canada."
