Feilhaber Rehabbing, Szetela Chilling

Maurice Edu, Michael Bradley, Danny Szetela, and Benny Feilhaber (pictured above) make up the contingent of young American central midfielders that US fans hope will develop into stars for the Red, White, and Blue. The latter two have been getting less of the spotlight as Edu made a big time move to Rangers and Bradley moved to the Bundesliga, but both should still have a bright future with the senior squad. Szetela has been getting significant PT with Brescia in Serie B, while Feilhaber has finally overcome the need for surgery on his bum knee and is close to returning to training. Check out ESPN's piece on Szetela and Yanks Abroad's piece on Feilhaber. Let's hope that Szetela can turn some of that Italian experience into solid contributions with the US and Feilhaber can regain the form and confidence he showed us in the last Gold Cup.
