The major news in sports: Rod 2.0 fave and soccer hotness Oguchi Onyewu, a key member of the U.S. national team that reached the Confederations Cup finals in South Africa, joins super-team AC Milan on a three-year contract.
Steven Goff at the Washington's Post describes this as "an absolutely huge move for Onyewu and really for U.S. soccer." Goff adds Onyewu becomes the only second American ever and "the first in ten years" to join Italy's famed Serie A league.
Onyewu, 27, played with Belgium's Standard Liege from 2004 to 2009. U.S. national team coach Bob Bradley adds: "It’s very exciting. It’s one of the great clubs in the world. It’s a terrific opportunity for him, and certainly the experience that he’ll get there I think will be really important as we move forward with our national team."
Oguchi anchored the U.S. back when the team upset Spain, the No. 1-ranked team in the world, at the Confederations Cup semifinal. Here's looking forward to the Gooch's exciting move to Milan and many more shirtless celebrations on the field.Thansk KASE
