Michael Bradley is a goal-scoring machine.
The U.S. national team midfielder scored in his third straight league match and upped his goal total in all competitions to 13 as he notched a goal and assist in Heerenveen’s 5-1 thrashing of VVV Venlo on Wednesday.
The goal was Bradley’s ninth in league play, moving him within three goals of tying Brian McBride for most league goals scored in a season by an American in a European first division (McBride netted 12 for Fulham in 2006/2007). Bradley’s 13 goals in all competitions is believed to be a record for an American in a season.
