FC's Edu called up to U.S. team

TORONTO - U.S. soccer coach Bob Bradley has called up Toronto FC rookie midfielder Maurice Edu for a European training camp in advance of an Oct. 17 friendly in Switzerland.

''It's something that I've dreamed of all my life, and I'm going to try and make the most of the chance,'' Adu said in a statement Tuesday.

Edu will miss Toronto FC's game in Los Angeles against the Galaxy on Saturday because of his national team duty. He will back for Toronto's final regular season home game against the New England Revolution on Oct 20.

Edu is one of just three MLS players on the U.S. roster. The other 18 play in Europe.

The University of Maryland product, the first overall pick in the 2007 MLS SuperDraft, has four goals this season.

Toronto defender Marvell Wynne was a member of the U.S. Copa America squad earlier this year.

*sighs* I really wish the media would stop referring to the team as FC! Just makes them sound even more ignorant than usual. :P

However, it is great to see Mo getting some national recognition. Although it does make things more fearful for us losing him to some European team next year. :/
I know right? How vague. There's, like, probably hundreds of FC's all over the world. *Rolls eyes at media*
