Edu hoping for World Cup start — USA Soccer Stud

After scoring the winning goal for his Rangers side against Celtic this year, the form (and stock) of U.S. midfielder Maurice Edu is rising, says FIFA.

There might well be a place for Edu on the Stars and Stripes’ flight to South Africa, where he painfully missed out on those heady glories in 2009 [due to injury]. And with Clark – his replacement at that historic FIFA Confederations Cup – struggling mightily with injuries, poor form and low confidence after a move to Bundesliga outfit Frankfurt, the door may well be propped open for the opportunistic Edu.

Although Edu hasn’t played regularly for the U.S. team, he’s widely regarded as a starter by the media due to his innate talent.
