As we all know, Freddy Adu, Landon Donovan's successor as US Soccer's golden boy, made a summer move to Benfica. Interesting story below about what Freddy has to prove at Benfica. The author is a bit harsh about the Adu-hype machine, but I do agree that its time for Freddy to deliver on the field, and if his performance at the U-20 WC is any indication, I think he's a good bet to impress.
My biggest concern is whether he falls victim to the age old problem of having to impress a new coach who is likely to bring in his own favorite players, and who has nothing invested in the players already with the team:
I for one am stoked to see what Freddy can do with regular training with high-level talent. He'll be 21 at WC 2010, so there's no reason to think he can't make the USMNT and contribute.
