AC Milan defender Onyewu takes first training session with US squad

AC Milan defender Oguchi Onyewu took part in USA national team training yesterday. It was the first time he has stepped on the field with a team since rupturing a patellar tendon in his knee on Oct. 14, 2009.

Onyewu trained for about 30 minutes, participating in the warm-up, a 5 versus 2 game and a possession game before stepping out for individual rehabilitation work. He is expected to return to Milan soon, where he will continue to work towards resuming full training.
