Adu Scores First Goal For Greek Club Aris

The diminutive forward has netted his first goal in quite some time.
It’s been an up and down few years for Freddy Adu.

Unsuccessful loan stints with Monaco and Belenenses yielded little for the 20-year-old Ghana-native. It appears that his most recent move may be working out.

Adu, playing in his third match for Greek club Aris Thessaloniki, scored the go-ahead goal just before the stroke of halftime to give his side the 2-1 lead over Ergotelis.

This comes on the heels of Eddie Johnson’s first goal for the club last week. The pair seem to be settling in well to life in Greece and could force their way into Bob Bradley’s World Cup plans if their solid play continues.

An MLS veteran before making the move abroad, Adu played 87 matches for D.C. United then another 11 for Real Salt Lake. He’s also been capped 15 times for the U.S. Men’s National Team, scoring twice in the process.
