Beware, MLS forwards: Maurice Edu can make you look ridiculous at a moment's notice - just ask Dominic Oduro. In the twenty-second minute of last night's Philadelphia Union match against Toronto FC, Edu (playing center back in place of the injured Carlos Valdes) got a pass with Oduro - one of the fastest forwards in the league - quickly closing down on him.
