Those who watched last night’s edition of the wonderful series, MLS Insider, were shown an inside look at a great American story, that of Michael Bradley.

But the audience also was blessed with the story of yet another American, that of recently naturalized Danny Mwanga.

The Colorado Rapids forward discussed his childhood growing up in Central Africa and the incredible pressures his family dealt with while living in a country stuck in civil war.

For whoever missed it, this one is a phenomenal story and a must-watch. Enjoy.
