Monaco Ties Juventus, Adu Draws Penalty

In a friendly that took place today in Messina, Italy, Freddy Adu started and drew a penalty in a 1-1 draw with Italian giants, Juventus. Although it is a meaningless game during the winter break, it is nice to see Freddy get some playing time and make an impact against such a high quality opponent. Juventus wasn't joking around either as Nedved, Del Piero, Buffon, and Sissoko were all in the lineup for the Italians. Let's hope this translates into increased playing time for the diminutive striker in the second half of the season.
