Decent read from Jeff Bradley on ESPN.com (http://sports.espn.go.com/sports/soccer/news/story?id=5165898). Didn't know this before, but this Bradley is Bob Bradley's younger brother.

Giuseppe Rossi has been branded a traitor to many in the United States, but I think it was pretty clear to most everyone that he didn't really get away from us as much as he never wanted to play for anyone but Italy. What rubs some salt in the wound (that shouldn't be there to begin with) was not the goals against the US at the Confederations Cup as much as it was the vigorous celebration. I would have expected something a bit more subtle from someone who considers the US to be a second home.
