Freddy Adu waited two years between professional goals before snapping his drought last Sunday.

His next wait lasted just three days.

Adu scored his second goal in as many matches for Greek club Aris FC on Wednesday, netting the second goal in Aris' 3-0 Greek Cup quarterfinal second-leg victory against Skoda Xanthi. The win came after a 1-1 draw in the first leg last week.

Adu capped a strong 65 minutes of action by helping set up Aris' third goal with a beautiful long pass that ultimately led to a goal by Koke.

Adu started and played 65 minutes as a left winger for Aris, showing good pace and a willingness to contribute defensively that could bode well for his chances of earning a look by U.S. coach Bob Bradley when he names his squad for the United States' upcoming friendly vs. the Netherlands on March 3 in Amsterdam.

Eddie Johnson also played for Aris, coming on as a 76th-minute substitute.

Here is Adu's goal:

Aris will next face the winner of the Panionios-Kavala quarterfinal series (being played right now) in the semifinals of the Greek Cup. Panathanaikos faces PAS Giannina in the other semifinal series.

What do you think of Adu's latest performance? Starting to like his chances of making the U.S. World Cup team? Hoping he can get some minutes in the Netherlands friendly? Still not convinced he can make the team?
