That's an Impressive if Unlikely Strike, Michael Bradley

I feel as though it has been awhile since I've heard anyone opine enthusiastically about Michael Bradley's ability to finish from distance. There was a lot of talk about that element of his game when he first came to the National Team, but we didn't see much of it (possibly because he was afraid to leave Rico Clark alone as the sole defensive central midfielder).

But hey, if he really and truly do anything approaching this, it is just gravy. Especially as our defense suggests that the US will be needing to score goals on the regular. This is from this morning friendly with Russia, which ended up be a 2-2 draw thanks to a late goal from the US. Below is Bradley's goal that brought the US level, 1-1. (Agudelo on the assist)
