- 2010 World Cup, Crew Stadium, Mexico, World Cup qualifying
It’s finally here, the 20 guys that will go head-to-head in the opening game for the final round of World Cup qualifying this week against arch-rival Mexico. Columbus is sure to be buzzing with this news.
Goalkeepers: Tim Howard (Everton), Brad Guzan (Aston Villa).
Defenders: Carlos Bocanegra (Rennes), Oguchi Onyewu (Standard Liege), Frankie Hejduk (Columbus), Heath Pearce (Hansa Rostock), Danny Califf (Midtjylland), Jonathan Bornstein (Chivas USA), Marvell Wynne (Toronto).
Midfielders: Michael Bradley (Moenchengladbach), DaMarcus Beasley (Glasgow Rangers), Sacha Kljestan (Chivas USA), Jose Francisco Torres (Pachuca), Clint Dempsey (Fulham), Ricardo Clark (Houston), Robbie Rogers (Columbus).
Forwards: Brian Ching (Houston), Landon Donovan (Los Angeles/Bayern Munich), Charlie Davies (Hammarby), Jozy Altidore (Villarreal/Xerez).
A few MLSers mixed in with a slew of European based guys. For the most part I cannot complain one bit about this roster. Could Bob Bradley have called up a Freddy Adu or someone like that? Possibly but I think this bunch is as solid as it can be.
What do you make of this roster?
