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.
