US Men's Youth National Team Qualifies for Beijing

Last night the U.S. Mens Youth National Team qualified for the Beijing Olympics defeating the Great White North, er, Canada 3-0. The U.S. was led by Freddy Adu who scored on two set pieces. Sacha Kljestan scored the other goal as the U.S. shut down the Canadian. The U.S. will play Honduras for the CONCACAF championship on Sunday.

So, it seems Freddy is quite adept at taking free kicks. Here is a link to his first goal and his second goal. Both clips look like the Zapruder film, sorry. The first goal looked pretty weak as the keeper just seemed out of position, but the second was a beauty. Here is a link to a Youth National Team practice taking set pieces. Freddy is the first one taken and it is quite nice.
