Michael Bradley embraces leadership role on U.S. soccer team Since making his World Cup debut four years ago, Michael Bradley has gotten married, become a father, joined Aston Villa of the English Premier League on loan from his German club, played for two clubs in Italy's Serie A league and was sold to Toronto FC of Major League Soccer. At 26, he has morphed into one of the senior statesmen on the U.S. national team, this time preparing for the World Cup under a coach who is not his dad. To be a player that is counted on by his coaches and his teammates to make a difference, to make plays, to be a leader - the challenge of all that excites me.
