Not too much to talk about here really. A few surprise call ups for some but overall not bad. Love the Conor Casey call up here.

GOALKEEPERS- Tim Howard, Brad Guzan, Luis Robles

DEFENDERS- Carlos Bocanegra, Oguchi Onyewu, Jonathan Spector, Jonathan Bornstein, Marvell Wynne, Jay DeMerit, Danny Califf, Heath Pearce.

MIDFIELDERS-Michael Bradley, Clint Dempsey, Sacha Kljestan, Jose Francisco Torres, Benny Feilhaber, Ricardo Clark, DaMarcus Beasley, Freddy Adu

FORWARDS- Landon Donovan, Jozy Altidore, Conor Casey, Charlie Davies.

Happy with this roster? Will it be good enough to face the likes of Italy and Brazil?

    We need central defenders who can organize, play smart and have great feet. There are ony two in the pool that fit that bill and they are Parkhurst and Goodson. We have only thugs on this roster in Gooch, Boca, DeMerit and Califf and we will pay dearly in SA aginst Brazil & Itlay. I've only seen these two paired against Guatemala & Sweden but those match were in full control although not the highest level. We will look back at the Gold Cup and wonder why BB didn't use this pairing sooner.

    Leave Beasley out!! He has been out of form for….ever. We have so much more talent out there but since he is in europe then they will never get a chance. If you look at the first goal for costa rica, Beasley could not controll it. The other semi dangerous plays on his side also. When he went to play mid, he didnt do much also. Leave him out so he can see that he does need to earn that spot.
