Onyewu Joins A.C. Milan

Onyewu signing with Milan is a big step for US Soccer

Oguchi Onyewu had a big Confederations Cup tournament and it paid off in a large way by signing with Italian football powerhouse AC Milan. This will only matter if Gooch gets a legitimate chance to play. There have been quite a few USMNT players that have not had a lot of playing time with their European clubs (Altidore and Adu being the most notable) and it has shown in their recent national team appearances. If Gooch plays often and plays well expect more and more looks from the large Euro clubs to US players.
