Freddy Adu scores first goal for Las Vegas Lights FC


Freddy Adu opened his account with USL side Las Vegas Lights FC on Saturday night.

Adu, who also turned 29 on Saturday, got his left boot on a ball near the left side of the net to score Las Vegas’ second goal of the contest against the Colorado Springs Switchbacks.

Since joining the Lights, Adu has made six appearances, with four of them being starts.

The Lights went on to win the contest 4-1, with Carlos Alvarez, Matt Thomas and Samuel Ochoa scoring the other tallies.



  1. What would the hype level be around a 14yr old Freddy Adu today? Would there even be any? We’ve come a long way. His story is part of the US maturing as a soccer nation. Keep on keepin’ on kid….

  2. I’m glad too. These are not pointless updates. They are ongoing chapters in an ongoing soap opera that some of us started watching 15 years ago! Hope springs eternal with each episode – I really do hope he makes something of his career and finishes on a strong note.

  3. Looks like he’s slimmed down a bit. If he stays healthy/in shape, he could probably string together 5+ somewhat productive years at the USL level.

  4. I’m penciling him in for the next round of friendlies…
    honestly, I’m happy for whatever success he has. Been a long a strange road for him…
