Bradley back in Toronto FC fold after World Cup
Question of the Day
TORONTO (AP) - When Michael Bradley stepped off the plane in Toronto after the United States’ loss to Belgium at the World Cup, he made his intentions immediately clear.
“He came up to me and said, ‘I want to train,’” Toronto coach Ryan Nelsen said.
The 26-year-old midfielder is expected to play Saturday night when Toronto hosts D.C. United, returning to his Major League Soccer squad with mixed feelings about the Americans’ World Cup run - sad that it ended when it did but proud of his team’s performance.
“There’s disappointment for sure because we felt like things had come together in a good way for us, and we felt like there was more there for us,” Bradley said after practice Friday at BMO Field. “That’s sports … you realize in those moments again how fine the margin is between going home and going on.
“I think for every guy on our team there is a huge sense of pride for the way we went about it when the spotlight came on the brightest. For every guy who was there, the commitment, the determination, the willingness to leave everything on the field in every moment was incredible.”
Bradley said the feedback from the Belgium game has been unanimous in that it was a great game to watch.
“The drama at the end, all the emotion that went into it … when you’re little, those are the games you dream of playing in,” Bradley said. “Unfortunately at the end somebody has to be on the losing side but when you get a taste of playing in those kinds of games, you want more.”
