The United States’ b-team was on display at last night’s Gold Cup match against Honduras, and while the understudy designation is an accurate one, that doesn’t take away from their 2-0 victory — especially when they broke through with such an exciting build up and finish.

Welcome to the Goal Scorers Club, Freddy

Sorry for all the videos today, but I just had to share this.

The soccer wunderkind known as Freddy Adu netted his first goal for the US Men’s National Team last night in route to a 2-0 win over Guatemala off of a nifty little set play. Adu has played sporadically for the “varsity” team, but as long as he continues to perform like last night, expect “sporadic” to become “long-term fixture.”

Furthermore, if that’s the kind of free-kicks we can expect from Adu, he’ll be around the US Team for a long time. He hasn’t even turned 20 yet, so again, I think it’s safe to say Adu will have many more opportunities to bend the ball like he did last night.
