VIDEO: Michael Bradley has scored an OLIMPICO!

It may be January and the World Cup may be three and a half years away but the USMNT is under pressure. They are under pressure to score and succeed and to turn around the mindset that they are unfit and give up goals late.

While this doesn’t do anything to quiet down the “giving up goals late” comments, we can all be in awe of this goal. Michael Bradley scoring the rare olimpico goal. In case you don’t know, an olimpico goal is when someone scores a goal from the corner. I only remember seeing David Beckham score one in MLS once and can’t remember many others. Michael Bradley, take a bow, that was a beaut!


Gyasi Zardes put forth a beautiful pass to Clint Dempsey to make it 2-0 to the USMNT. Watch out though because we have seen this before. The second half will tell us more than these great goals.
