BRADLEY TAPS STARIKOV FOR ROSTER
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
JAMIE HILL - Friday, January 7, 2011
US Soccer announced that Eugene Starikov will join the senior national team in camp at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California.

The 22 year-old Ukraine-born American came on strong during the second half of the season for Tom Tomsk in the Russian Premier League.

Starikov, who was on loan from Zenit St. Petersburg, spent much of the season on the bench and with the reserves, but when called upon he seized the opportunity and forced his way into the starting lineup, scoring once.

Stetson University alum Starikov becomes the fourth foreign-based player at Bradley's January camp, joining Dominic Cervi, Ryan Miller, and Mikkel "Mix" Diskerud.

A fifth overseas player, Alejandro Bedoya, was called up, but not released by his team Orebro of Sweden.

Yes!! I've been waiting for Bob to call him up. I've watched this kid a lot and seen him develop into a very good player with the ball at his feet, something we don't have a lot of at the forward position. Well done Bob.

Is this a preemptive strike against Russia? It is only a friendly against Chile so he could still join Russia.

Glad he is getting a chance, he battled to get into the starting lineup, looks like it might finally be paying off.
