It is with great pleasure that I am informing you that my son, Edson, made the 2010 US Mens World Cup Team.
The announcement was made following the US vs Czech Republic exhibition game Wed. May 25, 2010 at Rentscfhler Field in Hartford, CT.
Edson, like many other children, got his start in the Westchester Youth Soccer League showing that hard work, determination and persistence can bring you great success in life.
Edson “Pele” Buddle has been described by the LA Times as having the GOLDEN TOUCH which he received under the tutelage of his father, Winston Buddle.
Please join me in wishing him, and the entire US Mens Team, great success in South Africa.

U.S. star attacker Landon Donovan believes his Los Angeles Galaxy teammate Edson Buddle, who has scored five goals in the MLS season’s first three games, deserves a look at the U.S. training camp ahead of the World Cup.
Donovan said: “I see it a little different probably than most people. Most people see the goalscoring, which obviously as a forward is important. But for me, equally if not more importantly are the little things [Buddle's] doing to help our team win. And those types of things are important when you’re not scoring goals, especially. And a lot of players when they score a lot of goals think they don’t have to do those things, and he’s doing all those little things that are helping a lot.”
Donovan, who is headed to his third World Cup, also said Herculez Gomez should be looked at. World Cup teams must submit 30-man preliminary rosters to FIFA by May 11 and 23-man final rosters by June 1 – the day after the U.S. team arrives in South Africa.
