It’s great news for the U.S. team. Key defender Oguchi Onyewu is back training with the U.S. team and will soon report to his Italian club AC Milan.
Onyewu, who hails from Olney, Md., ruptured a patellar tendon in the U.S. team’s 2-2 tie with Costa Rica at RFK Stadium on Oct.14. The injury came after he jumped to head a ball and landed badly.
The 27-year-old is one of the U.S. team’s best central defenders and will be battling to get fit for the World Cup in June. He signed a three-year contract with Milan on July 7 but has yet to play a game for the top Italian team.
