Steven Goff has covered soccer for The Washington Post since the early 1990s. He has a deep passion for covering soccer, telling the stories of people and places with deep ties to the sport through family, culture, geography and politics. He has covered every World Cup since 1994, plus five Women's World Cups. His assignments have taken him to more than two dozen countries, from Barbados and Brazil to South Korea and South Africa.
On the domestic front, he has covered D.C. United since the 1996 inaugural season and attended almost every MLS Cup final. His blog, Soccer Insider, has been a fixture on The Post’s website since 2007. He also sometimes writes about college basketball.
