MOST COMMENTED

Tonight, U.S. international Michael Bradley, who seven-and-a-half years ago left the Red Bulls (nee MetroStars) at the age of 19 for Dutch side Heerenveen, returns to an MLS stadium. And this time, he will be playing in a stadium built specifically for soccer: Sporting Park in Kansas City, which is hosting tonight’s 2013 AT&T MLS All Star Game against AS Roma.

“I think you look around the league and you see the stadiums being built and the teams that come into the league that have support and fans like they do in Seattle and Portland,” the Roma midfielder said during a press conference Monday, “and I think that this is something that’s great for the league, great for our country and I think the quality continues to get better when you look at the run that the U.S. team made in this Gold Cup.”

Bradley added: “I think a lot of that is thanks to the MLS and the quality of the players who are playing here week in and week out. And I think it’s a very positive thing with everybody, because at the end of the day we’re all trying to grow the game in this country, make the league better and make the national team."
