Adu scores first goal in Greece

American forward Freddy Adu has scored his first goal in Greece for

Aris, helping his team to a 2-1 comeback victory over visiting

Ergotelis.

Adu made a perfectly timed run to meet a cross from Darcy

Neto and slot the ball into the net from close range in the 45th

minute.

The 20-year-old Adu has been loaned to Aris through June from

Portugal’s Benfica.

Ergotelis had taken the lead in the second minute through

Brazilian midfielder Beto. Sergio Koke equalized in the 29th with a

long-range drive, with Adu’s fellow U.S. international Eddie

Johnson providing the assist.

Aris is fifth in the Greek league with 35 points, 17 behind

leader Panathinaikos.
