VIDEO: Michael Bradley nets phenomenal goal for USA, draws plaudits of Toronto FC teammates

New, 3 comments

An incredible chip from the captain.

Michael Bradley is back in USA fans’ good books.

The midfielder is a popular figure at Toronto FC, but some American supporters have doubted his credentials for a starting spot in their national team on the back of a spell under Jurgen Klinsmann during which player and coach often did not seem to see eye-to-eye.

But Bradley silenced his critics at the Estadio Azteca in Mexico on Sunday night, firing a spectacular chipped shot past Guillermo Ochoa from at least 35 yards to give the USA a 1-0 lead in their World Cup qualifier.

A few of his TFC teammates were watching.

Quite possibly the best goal of his career.
