CHICAGO (Aug. 30, 2010) – U.S. Soccer has agreed to a four-year contract extension with U.S. Men’s National Team head coach Bob Bradley.
Bradley led the U.S. to an undefeated record in group play at the 2010 FIFA World for the first time en route to a first-place group finish for the first time in 80 years. After finishing the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifying cycle with more goals than any other team in the world, Bradley will again be at the helm through qualifying and the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
Up next for the U.S. and Bradley is a pair of international friendlies on Oct. 9 against Poland in Chicago and Oct. 12 against Colombia in Chester, Pa.
