Cue the Mike Grella Hype Pieces

Did 2 goals just earn a Camp Cupcake invite?

One month ago, Robbie Findley was the flavor…still is actually.

Last week, Marcus Tracy was heating up.

Today, Duke Blue Devil alum Mike Grella, battling in the FA Cup, lashed home two in extra time for Leeds of League One in a 5-1 victory. A US striker, playing against English competition and (just) scoring some goals….is that a recipe for a USMNT January camp invite?

This is tongue-in-cheek mind you–though I’m feeling oddly omniscient by throwing his name out in my piece on Sunday.

If you don’t know Grella, don’t worry he’s on the radar having been selected by Toronto FC in the MLS (that put him on Bob Bradley’s radar…wink) and played some U-20 ball.

Vid on Grella here; if we get the 2nd goal or it’s available on the 360, we’ll let you know.

Update: Jozy Altidore was all over the game on Twitter today.

    Grella’s second goal was fantastic. A couple stepovers and curling one towards the far post. Fantastic.
