Szetela continues comeback bid with Cosmos
[NASL] Danny Szetela, once considered up there with Freddy Adu, Jozy Altidore and Michael Bradley as the hottest U.S. prospects of their generation, will make his pro comeback with the New
York Cosmos, who begin play in the NASL in August.
Szetela, 26, played on the 2005 U.S. U-17 national team, the 2007 U.S. U-20 national team that beat Brazil and Uruguay and the 2008
Olympic team and earned three U.S. caps.
The midfielder was courted by some of Europe's biggest clubs before joining Racing Santander in Spain from the Columbus Crew in 2008.
But within two years he was out of pro soccer as a knee injury sidelined him.
He resurfaced this spring, playing for amateur team Icon FC of New Jersey's Garden State Soccer League during
its Open Cup run.
The Cosmos have begun training for their debut against Ft. Lauderdale on Aug. 3. They will head to England to face Leyton Orient July 24 and and Watford July 27 in
