Last season, it took until Nov. 10 for FIU men’s soccer to collect its first loss, and its second loss ended its season in the NCAA Tournament’s second round. This season, the Panthers are 0-2 and looking to rebound before their home opener.
In 2017, FIU men’s soccer had one of its most successful seasons since its run to the College Cup final in 1996. During his first season at the helm, head coach Kevin Nylen guided the Panthers to a long unbeaten streak at the start of the season, capped off with an NCAA Tournament appearance and victory before being eliminated at the hands of Duke in the second round.
In 2018, some seniors have departed, but a significant part of that team returns with even higher expectations.
