Freddy off the bench

Yeah, I know this was a couple of days ago, but I hadn't seen Freddy Adu's latest goal for Benfica until now. It's a pretty good one. Hopefully, it will earn him more playing time. He's going to need some to make the Olympic team next year.

I think Freddy Apu will make the U.S Olympic squad regardless of how he does with Benfica, that said, sweet goal.

Any news why he isn't starting? It isn't like Benfica is scoring all that many goals anyway.

The coach has been quoted as saying Adu needs to adjust to European football. He had been on the bench for 1 or 2 Champions League matches under the new coach. I think this latest goal will pressure the coach to give him a start in this cup tournament they were in, maybe it will pressure him to give Adu some actual league minutes. The fans will sooner or later demand to see Adu on the field more if he keeps this up.

How is that first goal not offside?

it's nice to see him take advantage of the time he is in for his club team. hopefully like others have said, he'll see more minutes in upcoming games. just have to keep him developing for our national team.
