AMSTERDAM, Netherlands -- Forward Charlie Davies, who suffered multiple injuries during a fatal car accident in which he was a passenger, claims he will be back for the World Cup.

Most observers feel that is a long shot given the extend of his injuries and the short time he has to recover.

But U.S. coach Bob Bradley likes Davies' commitment.

"The most important thing that you get when you hear Charlie talk is the positive attitude that he has, the determination that he has," Bradley said after practice Monday. "It shows up in his rehab. It shows up in terms of his new attitude on a lot of things. When you have that kind of mentality, that attitude, you always have a chance.

"The reminder for anyone is that just any athlete coming back from an injury. If it's 100 steps to get back to the level that you are playing at, the last steps are the hardest and are the ones most difficult to predict on how long they take."

The U.S. plays the Netherlands in an international friendly at Amsterdam ArenA at 2:30 p.m. ET Wednesday.
