San Jose — This afternoon at the Fairmont Hotel, the latest San Jose Earthquake, Geovanni, was introduced to the assembled media and fans. The big news of the day? The Brazilian, who only signed his contract on Monday, will be available for tomorrow's match against the Los Angeles Galaxy after his International Transfer Certificate and work visa were obtained in record time.
Here's the audio from the press conference, including a question-and-answer session at the end. We'll have more, including interviews with Geovanni, Earthquakes head coach Frank Yallop, and teammate Andre Luiz on this week's Center Line Soccer podcast, to be released by tomorrow morning.
