He is a strategist. With that definition starts his U.S. Soccer profile, which introduces us  to one of five players to fight for the top position of the USMNT, he is also one of the five who played all the minutes of South Africa 2010.

Bradley is one of the most consistent players on the USMNT, tenacious and competitively controls the midfield . Experts say that his energy and confidence in the field are that of a veteran, his passing accuracy and his shots are extremely effective.

Already in 2007 he had been appointed U.S. Young Male Athlete of the Year.

He has waved the American flag on many occasions, with the U-20 and also in the 2008 Beijing Olympics .

His performance in Europe, which is no less than impressive, began in Heerenveen, Holland, and then moved to Borussia Mönchengladbach in the German Bundesliga, he was subsequently loaned to Aston Villa in the Premier League. In Italy, with Chievo Verona, he gained the nickname of General Bradley, with which he was then transferred to AS Roma , where he earned a spot on the starting team.

The goal and the two outstanding assists on the CONCACAF Gold Cup 2011 and his tying goal against Slovenia in the 2010 World Cup, which kept  the chances of the United States alive for a while and was nominated as the best goal of the tournament, are some of the biggest standouts of his career.
