Beasley Back In Form

U.S. International DaMarcus Beasley is clearly back in form as he helped Glasgow Rangers win the Scottish FA Cup final against Cinderella story Queen of the South. Beasley scored a goal and had an assist in the game winner.

Beasley has just returned from a nearly six month knee injury.

Beasley is likely to see a fair amount of playing time in the U.S. next three friendlies, largely because he is not likely to be as knackered as the rest of the European based squad. Despite his slight size, Beasley's speed is a huge asset to the Americans. I think a combination of Beasely and Dempsey on the wings spreads the field and opens up lots of space for the American strikers.

Hats off to Queen of the South, who not only made it to the Scottish FA Cup Final, but made it a match against one of the powerhouses of Scottish football.
