Carlos Cordeiro was elected the 32nd president of the U.S. Soccer Federation during the Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Saturday morning in Orlando, Fla. Cordeiro, who previously served as the second-in-command to former federation chief Sunil Gulati, was elected by a 68.6 percent majority ballot in the first U.S. Soccer presidential vote since 1998, and will serve a four-year term. "I'm a little overwhelmed," Cordeiro said, according to ESPN. "Thank you to those of you who supported me today. Thank you very, very much. This is incredibly humbling. I want to thank all the candidates for a spirited campaign, all of you, thank you."
