It's surely settled in by now: Michael Bradley is coming back to MLS. Regardless of whether you're thrilled or appalled, or you happen to subscribe to the "To each his own" theory, it's happening (and for a $10 million transfer fee).

While Bradley's greatest assets as a player are far from limited to goal scoring, the U.S. national team midfielder has scored his fair share of impressive, important strikes in his day. So in closing what has been another wild week of MLS offseason/USMNT winter, let's look back at some of Bradley's greatest hits for both club and country before he is unveiled as Toronto FC's latest massive signing:

Bradley vs. Russia: AKA "What A Hit!"

Bradley vs. Scotland: AKA The Bradley Bomb

Bradley vs. Chivas USA: AKA The Most Ironic Playoff Clinching Goal Ever (Bob Bradley had just been fired as the NY/NJ coach in 2005, and the goal was his first as a pro)

Bradley vs. Slovenia: AKA The USA Lives To Play On

Bradley's final goal with Roma: AKA LEX LUTHOR! LEX LUTHOR!
