Brenden Aaronson, aka “The Medford Messi” Scores Game Winner Against Barcelona

Big week for American soccer.

We beat Mexico in the Gold Cup final on Sunday night, and today Philadelphia Union alumnus Brenden Aaronson scored the game-winner in a preseason match against Barcelona:

Gotta follow your shot, kids. Can’t stand there and ball watch. Aaronson is a blue-collar Philly guy and always plays until the whistle.

He’s our guy. The Medford Messi. 20 years old and scoring game-winners against F.C. Barcelona. We’ve come a long way. This ain’t your grandmother’s Delaware Valley when it comes to developing soccer players.
