Hell freezes over–also, Freddy Adu gets playing time

Freddy Adu was subbed on for the final 10 minutes off Belenses’ 2-2 draw against Maritomo today. Belenses was up both a man and 2 goals until Emanuel Evaristo scored in the 78th minute. Evaristo scrored again 10 minutes later to even the score. Adu was not at fault for the goal.

In fact, now that we’ve finally gotten to see Adu play in a league game, it remains a mystery why the kid can’t catch a break. Belenenses is a middling, sloppy team that lacks creativity in midfield and (clearly) the ability to hold on to a lead. In his short time on the pitch today Adu held and passed the ball well, despite his teammate’s tendency to ignore him. He also created Belenses’ only real chance in the final 10 minutes, releasing Lima with a clean through ball, only to see the striker flub the chance and blast the ball past the left goal post.

Come on Pereira–what are you thinking? Your team sucks. Give the kid a chance and he might just help them suck less.
