Adu thrilled to return to winning ways with Philadelphia Union

Freddy Adu was happy to be back in winning form with Philadelphia Union on the weekend.

The 22-year old was making just his second appearance of the season after captaining the USA U23 team which fell short in Olympic qualifying and admits it was nice to on a winning side as the Union defeated Columbus Crew at PPL Park.

"All is right with the world right now," he said.

"It felt great [to be back], especially in a winning effort. I'm glad I was part of the play that led to the goal as well."

And Adu said he was determined to make more of an impact for Philly this season by providing a lot more going forward.

"My goal this year is to be an impact player for the team - not just to play well. I want to be involved a lot more offensively and going forward. From that perspective, it felt good today," he added.

"I just want to be an impact player," Adu reiterated. "It's important to me. I did that with U-23s and I want to build on that. … The goal was always to transition what I was doing with the U-23s back here in Philadelphia and so far it's good. But it can always be better."
