Michael Bradley’s dream goal


With most people (including those of us on SBI) focused on the MLS Draft and Landon Donovan's performances with Bayern Munich last week, you might have missed the other American player who beautifully scored for his German club side. The author of the fascinating goal? Michael Bradley.

Borussia Monchengladbach took on Grasshopper-Club Zurich in a friendly last Thursday and Bradley stole the show with his 30-yard volley in the 25th minute.

See for yourself:

Gladbach could use more of that offensive fire-power from Bradley as they currently sit in last place in the German Bundesliga. Monchengladbach resumes its season on January 31 vs. VfB Stuttgart.

What did you think of Bradley's golazo? Think he can replicate those type of goals for the USMNT and in the Bundesliga?  Did the goal make you reminisce of Benny Feilhaber's goal against Mexico back in 2007? Think the haters would finally lay off Bradley if he hit one of those against Mexico on Feb. 11th?

Share your thoughts below.


  1. Michael Bradley does make some poor tackling decisions, leading to unnecessary cards. Hopefully with more experience we will see better judgment on certain tackles. I choose to think that his mistakes come from being aggressive and that is it better/easier to try to temper aggression than teach a timid player to be aggressive.
