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. Does Edu hoof it upfield? Does he try and work his way out of a jam? Does he pass it back to the goalkeeper and hope Oduro doesn't make a play on it?
No. He clowns Oduro with one of the dirtiest nutmegs that you'll ever see. (Thanks to MLS for the "GIF proof")

That's just cold.
The two teams meet up again on Saturday at 2 PM EDT at BMO Field in Toronto, with both teams fighting to make the playoffs.
