Arena looking to call-up Adu

Bruce Arena has said that he was looking at calling Freddy Adu up for the next national team's practice, but that was before his recent outspokenness. So how does Bruce feel about Freddy now? "There’s a strong likelihood he’ll be at camp. He has shown a lot of progress and we need to take a look at him."

But what about his recent words about DC?

"He won’t be [invited] if he keeps running his mouth and tries to punch out his coach."

Arena also said, "Freddy is going to be a very good player. I just wish people would be more patient. The adults around him are causing the problem. They need to show some patience and allow the kid to grow up, on the field and off the field."

So there you have it. Bruce is willing to give the kid a chance, but Freddy has to understand that he still has a way to go before he is at full potential. I still think his chances of seeing action in Germany are extremely slim, but he will be given a look. Once again, the Bruce being the calming factor in US soccer.

Don't forget to vote for the Honda US MNT Player of the Year.
