Adu and Feilhaber Returning to Europe

Freddy Adu played his final minutes in the 2009 Gold Cup against Honduras. He now returns to Portuguese club Benfica for preseason training in the hopes of earning the playing time that has eluded him of late. "This will be the last game that Freddy will appear in the Gold Cup," U.S. coach Bob Bradley said. "That was part of the arrangement from the start."

Benny Feilhaber had less time in the game than Adu, but his calmness and keen eye for the pass turned the match around for the Americans. Feilhaber triggered the combination play that led to the winning goal by Santino Quaranta. Now the midfielder will return to Denmark, where he plays for AGF Aarhus.

"Benny has done well in a number of situations as a sub when he starts connecting plays, gets us going a bit, gets our tempo moving a bit faster," Bradley said. With seven extra players allotted to the US Gold Cup roster as a provision for the club's recent participation in the Confederations Cup, Bradley has his pick of reinforcements for the departing players, but didn't have anyone in particular in mind. "There's no specific replacement," he said.
