USMNT Roster for August 22nd Clash with Sweden Set…

Rumor is Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Freddie Ljungberg, and Kim Kallstrom were all summoned for the match. If that’s the case, then they mean business… 


Goalkeepers (2) – Marcus Hahnemann (Reading FC), Tim Howard (Everton FC)

Defenders (6) – Carlos Bocanegra (Fulham FC), Jonathan Bornstein (Chivas USA), Steve Cherundolo (Hannover 96), Jay DeMerit (Watford FC), Oguchi Onyewu (Standard de Liege), Jonathan Spector (West Ham United)

Midfielders (6) – DaMarcus Beasley (Glasgow Rangers), Michael Bradley (SC Heerenveen), Bobby Convey (Reading FC), Clint Dempsey (Fulham FC), Benny Feilhaber (Derby County), Pablo Mastroeni (Colorado Rapids)

Forwards (5) – Landon Donovan (Los Angeles Galaxy), Charlie Davies (Hammarby IF), Kamani Hill (VfL Wolfsburg), Josh Wolff (1860Munich), Sal Zizzo (Hannover 96)

Nice to see Davies, Zizzo (yes, he’s more of an attacking midfielder), and Hill in there. No Freddy Adu though…not surprising really, but would have been interesting to see him. What does your starting XI look like??

  1. Breton, you cheeky monkey. Way to keep on top of this stuff…and, holy shit, August 22nd? Already?!

    Anyway, here’s my (shits-n-giggles) starting eleven (it’s a friendly, man):

    GK: Marcus Hahnemann
    D: (R) Steve Cherundolo, (C) Jay DeMerit, (C) Carlos Bocanegra, (L) Jonathan…wait for it…Spector, what the hell.
    M: (R) Clint Dempsey, (C) Michael Bradley, (C) Benny Feilhaber, (L) Bobby Convey
    F: Josh Wolff, Charlie Davies

    After further review, that’s not so outlandish…at least till you get to the forwards. And I do worry about speed in the defense. In case it’s not clear, I think I’d line ’em up in a regular ol’ 4-4-2.
