Beckham said: 'It would be great if he did get to play for the national team because everybody knows how important it is to play for your country and how much it means to players.

'But at the moment Edson's just concentrating on playing for the Galaxy and scoring goals and working hard.

'He's a young player as well, so he's listening to me, to Landon, he listens to the coach and as long as he carries on listening and working hard he's going to go places because at the moment he's proving what a great player he can be.

'At the start of the season, we turned round to him and said 'you're a big guy, throw your weight around and you'll get your goals' and he's done that this season.

'He's got a great touch as well and his confidence is growing and when you're scoring goals that can only get better.

'It's not just the goals that he gives us, he works hard for the team and he's a good guy as well so let's hope he does get a chance in the national team because he's doing so well for us at the moment.'

Like i have said b4 buddle is a freakish playa when he wants to play...U cant teach size 6'2 190 pounds...u cant teach technique , u cant teach dribbling and to be quite honest , if he wasnt lazy , he could of been a star in europe like a berbtov but hes an anelka..with great skills but w/ no work ethic. but htis yr hes been pushing himself more and he deserves a call up.. and da US team has no good strikers...so try him


Edson Buddle, Robbie Rogers, Cooper, and Holden have been the biggest movers on the attacking front this season, really showcasing the technique, athleticism, and size(for position) that was lacking last cycle.

Bob Bradley plays a slow build-up and hopes for a set-piece - that's even according to John Harkes (watched US-Argentina a few nights ago with the Emglish commentary).

He doesn't need creativity from his players. He wants size and hard work.

Maybe he should have been on the Olympics roster


Thats why US team needs a top notch euro coach...American coaches like speed , ht , athletism...euro coaches like technical playas....too bad , US team wont never reach their potential unless the coaches think a bit
