As the U.S. men's national team goes through its paces at day four of pre-World Cup training camp, one of the players with the most important roles on the team is Michael Bradley.

Though he's still just 22, Bradley has grown into a key force in central midfield and one of the few players who is locked in as a starter at a set position heading into the World Cup.

Here is my Fox Soccer feature on Bradley, who discussed his style of play, his experience as a teenager in the 2006 pre-World Cup camp and his reputation for taking too many cards.

Give the story a ready and stay tuned for coverage from today's training session, as well as a feature on Maurice Edu later today.

What do you think of Michael Bradley? Impressed with his development? Worried about him getting cards at the World Cup?
