Finally took the time to find and watch the replay of Michael Bradley’s gorgeous volleyed goal against Russia from Wednesday. Watching it again just makes me smile.
It would be an interesting debate to see who most USMNT fans thought was the team’s best player right now. Bradley has obviously developed into a world-class player, the U.S. wouldn’t have even been in the game without Timmy Howard’s heroics in the net and, of course, Dempsey has been the USMNT’s scoring crutch for the better part of the last two years.
But you know what? You can have the debate–I’m just happy the USMNT has three top-class players and a boatload of youngsters ready to push themselves into the first team.
Now we just need to work on that defense.
And here’s Mix Diskerud’s goal for good measure.
