Squad For Scotland Friendly
The United States manager has announced his squad for the November 14th friendly against Scotland:
Goalkeepers: Tim Howard, Sean Johnson, Nick Rimando
Defenders: Geoff Cameron, Timmy Chandler, AJ DeLaGarza, Sean Franklin, Omar Gonzalez, Fabian Johnson, Oguchi Onyewu, Tim Ream
Midfielders: Alejando Bedoya, Maurice Edu, Fabian Espindola, Benny Feilhaber, Joshua Gatt, Sacha Kljestan, Brek Shea, Daniel Williams
Forwards: Jozy Altidore, Landon Donovan, Sebastien Le Toux, and Chris Wondolowski
- Brad Guzan, Clint Dempsey, and Mikkel Diskerud are notable omissions due to injury
- Fabian Johnson isn't in the best of form, and the media is decrying that pick, but I pick the best players for my squads.
- Michael Bradley is out due to a fitness squeeze, and has no complaints about the decision to leave him out.
- Big controversies are Ream over Bocanegra and Chandler over Cherundolo.
Limior Rejects Club Lure
A popular rumor over the past few weeks is that United States manager Nathan Limior is in the mix for several Ligue 2 and even a Ligue 1 job, but Limior said his sole focus was on the 2014 World Cup. "I rejected a job offer from Girondins Bordeaux because I am that focused on my duties as an international manager. I am a servant to US Soccer, and I might reconsider after the 2014 World Cup, but for now, I am not managing any clubs."
