By FRANCO PANIZO

Maurice Edu netted his first goal of the season on Saturday, scoring a beauty in Rangers' 1-1 draw with Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

Edu finished a nice passing sequence in the first half by blasting a left-footed volley to the far post.The goal was not enough to keep Rangers' unblemished SPL record intact as the club surrendered an equalizer in the 81st minute.

Edu was subbed off at halftime.

Here's the goal:


What do you think of Edu's goal? Like his facial expression on the celebration more? Think his goal is better than both of Clint Dempsey's finishes from today?

    Sweet golazo for Edu. Why was he subbed off at the half?

  3. Gacm32 says:

    He took a knock earlier in the half after the goal and never recovered fully from it. Mostly just a precautionary measure.

  4. Gacm32 says:

    +1 haha

  5. Edwin in LA says:

    God I want to see him with Jones in the middle and Donovan, Holden and Dempsey in midfield

  6. SwerveZ says:

    Was is this guy playing center defense for the US???

  7. SwerveZ says:

    …”why”

  8. Smirking Kitten says:

    Fantastic finish! It is great to see Edu’s offensive quality. Now, if Jozy sees some La Liga minutes this weekend, it will be a fantastic one for Americans abroad.

  9. GW says:

    Edu has always had a knack for scoring goals going back to his high school and Maryland days. Nice to see him doing it at Rangers.

    i love the way thye pronounce his name, Morris Edooh

  11. Vik says:

    wow, that’s some strike

  12. Thor says:

    I have said it before and I will say it again Edu > then Jones

  13. Citronomics says:

    “It’s in the back of the net” (revisting my memories of DCU scoring). Sweet strike by Mo Edu!

  14. Bob Bradley's Scout says:

    Maurice scored last during the champs league too,if I am remembering corectly. I think its time to bench bradley in favor of a midfield pairing of: Edu and Holden…. They are both more rounded players than a bradley & jones pairing, meaning I think they are just as good defensively and better going forward. I mean holden was leading the premier league in tackles at one point!!!! why is he on the frigin WING!!! Please quit with the nepotisim BOB, Put your son on the bench!!! I havent seen the national team withot Micheal Bradley in 4 frikin Years… That is blatant favoritism…….

  15. Bob Bradley's Scout says:

    Oh Wait! I am Wrong. I think Bradley may have sat 1 or 2 games, but only because of injury.

  16. Scott A says:

    Nice recovery from the OK first touch

  17. A.S. says:

    Yes, Edu scored two in the Champions League game against Valencia … one of which was an own-goal of course.

    I think that we certainly ought to try the Edu – Jones pairing in central defensive midfield. The experiment at center back doesn’t make sense to me. I would be fine if Bob Bradley played Michael Bradley instead of Holden too.

    He’s better then Michael Bradley and has been for a while

  19. Gulati knows nothing about football says:

    Cause this is america and we play players out of position. Ever wonder why guys that made most of their names in the center constantly get pushed wide? Donovan, Dempsey, Holden, Fielhaber, Adu, occasionally Torres. If they are attackers they’ll get stuck wide cause our coaches are scared to pay attacking football. They want more defensive players like Bradley and edu but we still play a lot of players out of position.

  20. wally says:

    MB’s having a stretch of bad form. I’ll agree that Edu’s playing better then him right now, but not that Edu’s the better player. I think MB will turn it around, and and get back to his world cup form.

  21. bryan says:

    great goal.

  22. PetedeLA says:

    Anyone have any intel on why he switched numbers?

  23. Alex says:

    7 is a better number than 2.

  24. Goalscorer24 says:

    Great to see Edu score for his club team. Too bad he won’t score for the US team with RoboBob at the helm.

  25. Nic D "The Texas 2 Stepper" says:

    Great finish! Very Nice.
