Something different to think about on the eve of the Hex
Posted by Sheep on 2/5 at 8:23 pm
I've shamelessly lifted this from the Big Head & Red Head (Twellman and Alexi) podcast. (Which was really good this week... you can find it on the ESPN Radio app...)

Here's the 18 from the first game of the hex in 2009.

quote:

USA: 1-Tim Howard; 2-Frankie Hejduk, 3-Carlos Bocanegra (capt.), 5-Oguchi Onyewu, 15-Heath Pearce; 8-Clint Dempsey, 4-Michael Bradley, 16-Sacha Kljestan (13-Ricardo Clark, 86), 7-DaMarcus Beasley; 10-Landon Donovan, 11-Brian Ching (9-Jozy Altidore, 83)
Subs not used: 18-Brad Guzan, 6-Jonathan Bornstein, 14-Danny Califf, 17-Jose Francisco Torres, 12-Marvell Wynne


Only 12 of that 18 made the final roster in 2010.

Which 12 from tomorrow's roster are you CERTAIN to be on the plane to Brazil in 16 short months?

Here are my 12:

quote:

GOALKEEPERS (3): Brad Guzan, Tim Howard, Sean Johnson
DEFENDERS (9): Matt Besler, Carlos Bocanegra, Geoff Cameron, Edgar Castillo, Timmy Chandler, Brad Evans, Omar Gonzalez, Fabian Johnson, Michael Parkhurst
MIDFIELDERS (8): Michael Bradley, Brad Davis, Maurice Edu, Jermaine Jones, Sacha Kljestan, Jose Torres, Danny Williams, Graham Zusi
FORWARDS (4): Jozy Altidore, Clint Dempsey, Herculez Gomez, Eddie Johnson

Herc will have just turned 32.

ETA: Bocanegra will have just turned 35.

Would be interesting if GAM makes it. Not many players for any country play in 2 world cups that aren't consecutive.

Jurgy's going to put him on the roster as a send-off, even if the guy can't walk. Just accept it.

quote:

Herc will have just turned 32.


As the hardest worker among the forwards, he's getting on the roster. And it's not like 32 year old forwards haven't been used in Cups like this.

Gomez will be 32 in 2014. With strikers, a national team manager always picks at least two based on season-ending goalscoring form; hence the 2010 selections of Gomez and Edson Buddle.
