There’s an old adage that excelling in international tournaments results in a big paydays on the club level. While this dynamic has changed dramatically for the majority of players, this paradigm still applies to a good number of players. Oneyewu Oguchi appears to have reaped the benefits of a strong showing in the Confederation Cup by signing for AC Milan. By playing in one of the premier leagues in the world, Oguichi will only improve and hopefully raise the stature of US players abroad. It wouldn’t surprise me if Altidore gets first team action with Villareal when La Liga’s season starts.
