Conway, also the first soccer coach at Oregon State, was diagnosed with dementia in 2009 and was hospitalized in recent years. He passed away Thursday night.

The Dublin native made 20 appearances for the Irish national team between 1966-77 and scored three goals.

He spent 10 years of his club career with Fulham, scoring 67 times in 314 league games, and was a member of the team that went to the FA Cup Final in 1975. The next year he was transferred to Manchester City, where he played two seasons but appeared in just 13 games because of injuries.

USMNT union blasts U.S. Soccer's handling of USWNT negotiations, doesn't want federation that 'behaves like FIFA' .
The union that represents the United States men’s national team blasted the U.S. Soccer Federation for its handling of the USWNT’s collective bargaining agreement. While the statement addresses a number of issues, the men’s argument revolves around the CBA the men signed in 2011. The men are using that negotiation to argue that the women deserve a significant raise when the women’s CBA expires in 2021. What we believe should happen is simple. Pay the women significantly more than our recently expired men’s deal. In our estimation, the women were due at least triple what our expired deal was worth in player compensation.
