Freddy was all smiles in Turkey
A number of young Americans playing abroad had a strong weekend as the ever-growing pool of professional players is threatening to make a spot on the US U-20 and U-23 teams a precious commodity.
At the top of the list is an old face who is enjoying newfound success in Turkey. Freddy Adu, who was recently loaned to Rizespor in Turkey's second tier, scored his first goal with the club, which proved to be the difference in a narrow 1-0 victory. Adu is attempting to revive a flagging career along the shores of the Black Sea and thus far has made three starts, his first action since last May with Aris Thessaloniki.
