Here, from U.S. Soccer, is the story of how Michael Bradley’s custom “One Nation” rainbow captain’s armband was fabricated and delivered just before kickoff of the Copa América quarterfinal against Ecuador.
The USMNT’s Gold Cup opener was their first competitive match since the World Cup, and in the broadest sense, it’s all about the next one. Jurgen Klinsmann has said repeatedly how 2015 is a year of “transition” for the roster—reloading, getting younger, starting up the position battles that will play out from now…
The USMNT is taking on Panama in an international friendly today, and Michael Bradley just scored an Olimpico from the corner.
Not that this is any real secret, but it deserves to be said as often as possible: MLS is rigged. The league jointly owns each individual team, centrally controls all major decisions, and has a rule book as regularly erased and written over as a chalk board. With yesterday's reported news that Juventus forward…
So, what we have below is an updated list of every MLS player's salary. There are some things worth talking about.
USA players covered an average of 77.17 miles per match over their four matches at the World Cup. That's more per match than any other nation, which is something to be proud of, right?

It's about that time of the year again!

Yep, Major League Soccer, the land of has-beens…
Michael Bradley paced Roma to a 1-0 victory yesterday, much to the delight of this Italian soccer announcer. All together now, "LEX LUTHOOOOR!"
This kid is everyone's spirit kid. He's pissed. And why not, everything about Friday night was a bummer. Before the U.S. men even dug themselves a 2-0 hole in the first 10 minutes, Michael Bradley went down with an injured ankle in the pre-game workout.
The US and Russian men's national soccer teams fought to a 2-2 draw this afternoon in an international friendly at Russia's Kuban Stadium. Michael Bradley's impressive marker you see above knotted the game at 1-1 in the 76th minute. If his dad was still the coach, Michael definitely would have been rewarded with a…
In the 17th minute, with the son of the former USMNT coach marking him, Mexico forward Oribe Peralta capitalized on a cross from Andres Guardado. Pretty goal. The U.S. has yet to score its new coach. Second half about to begin.
The coach's kid, Michael Bradley, scores on a nifty header off a corner kick from surprise starter Freddy Adu.
