Aris Salonika will play one of its biggest matches of the season when it takes on Kavala in a Greek Cup semifinal match on Wednesday, and Freddy Adu will take no part in it.
Adu was not named to the 18-man roster released by manager Hector Cuper for the first leg of the home-and-home series, marking the fourth straight match Adu will fail to see the field for Aris. Adu's omission may come as somewhat of a surprise as he played a role in helping Aris reach the semifinals by scoring a goal in a 3-0 second leg victory against Skoda Xanthi in the quarterfinals in February. (Update- One Greek outlet is reporting Adu's absence is due to tactical reasons and not because of injury.)
Fellow U.S. international Eddie Johnson was named to the roster.
What do you think of this development? Concerned at all by Adu's omission? Do you see Johnson getting the start tomorrow?
