World Cup Qual Roster [Updated]

14 08 2008

USA Roster Announced:

The 17-man roster, including four Olympians, for Wednesday’s World Cup qualifier at Guatemala (10 p.m. ET, ESPN2, Galavision): [FYI, an 18th player will be added in the next few days.]

GOALKEEPERS: Tim Howard, Brad Guzan.

DEFENDERS: Steve Cherundolo, Oguchi Onyewu, Carlos Bocanegra, Heath Pearce, Frankie Hejduk, Jay DeMerit.

MIDFIELDERS: Michael Bradley, Maurice Edu, Sacha Kljestan, Pablo Mastroeni, Eddie Lewis.

FORWARDS: Landon Donovan, Eddie Johnson, Brian Ching, Clint Dempsey.

Jeff’s take:

Surprisingly missing: Kenny Cooper

Mistakenly present: Brian Ching (I love the Dynamo therefore I love Ching, but he doesn’t need to be on this roster; I would have brought Kenny, or long list of other people first).

Olympians Experience Hong Kong, Kinda

28 07 2008

The US Soccer team is training in Hong Kong before their match against the Ivory Coast. They decided to experience the local culture…at Starbucks? At least they saw the harbor before being sucked in by the coffee mogul (which I frequent daily btw).
