Freddy Adu and Eddie Johnson enjoyed their first start together for Aris Salonika in the club's match vs. Ergotelis on Sunday, and the American tandem made quite the impact.

After falling behind early, Johnson and Adu each played a part in helping Aris achieve a comeback victory. Johnson played a part in the Aris equalizer, providing the pass that teammate Sergio Koke buried from distance, while Adu netted the winner in the 2-1 victory by racing in to finish off a low cross just before halftime.

Adu's game-winning goal was not only his first for Aris, but it was his first at the club level since scoring for Benfica during the 2007-2008 season.

Here are all the goals from Aris' victory:

What do you think of Adu's goal? Think either player should be called up to U.S. national team for the Netherlands friendly?
