  • El Salvador, World Cup qualifying

US Men’s National team manager Bob Bradley has announced the squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers vs. El Salvador on Sept. 5th (9pm, ESPN Classic, Telefutura) and Trinidad & Tobago on Sept. 9th (7pm, ESPN Classic, Galavision).

Here is the group:

GOALKEEPERS- Tim Howard, Brad Guzan.

DEFENDERS- Carlos Bocanegra, Oguchi Onyewu, Jay DeMerit, Chad Marshall, Steve Cherundolo, Jonathan Spector, Jonathan Bornstein, and Clarence Goodson.

MIDFIELDERS- Landon Donovan, Clint Dempsey, Michael Bradley, Stuart Holden, Kyle Beckerman, Ricardo Clark, Benny Feilhaber, Jose Francisco Torres, and Robbie Rogers.

FORWARDS-Charlie Davies, Jozy Altidore, Brian Ching, Conor Casey, Robbie Findley.

Shockers to some right away may be Beckerman, Findley and Rogers. Overall I think this is a roster that should get us six points in these two games. Anything less than four points I think could be a disappointment. What do you make of this roster?

    It's interesting to realize that if the WC were next week this would be 90% of our roster picks. Perhaps Edu, Cooper & Beasely could sneak on there.
