The U.S. men's national team opened up its three game "send off" series ahead of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil with a comprehensive 2-0 victory over Azerbaijan. Michael Bradley went the distance for the Yanks, marshaling possession in the midfield and constantly looking to unlock the defensive minded Azerbaijan squad. The Toronto FC designated player's blast from within the area in the 75th minute was saved off the line, allowing Mix Diskerud time and space to stab home the game winning goal. No assist for Bradley on the play, but his effort and industry directly led to the goal.
