Only 1 Left Back & 1 Right Back, really?, and Lichaj!!!?????

and Parkhurst????

No Lichaj? and A.J. de la Garza? he played in the CONCACAF CL, and Michael Orozco? he scored the only Goal in the Friendly with Mexico... Ony 1 LB and 1 RB, Is incredible!!

Goodson?? are you kidding me?, no J.A. Brooks?, No Seb Hines?

No Diskerud?, No O'Brien? but, Beckerman is in the roster!!???

No Joshua Gatt?, No Bedoya? and Pontius?

If JK will improvise, so, why not Aron Johanson, or Not Wood or Not Wooten??

With this selection US has no option but to be more offensively aggresive. May be this is a blessing in disguise...(Perhaps wishful thinking.)

Eric Lichaj should be there, his experience alone says that. As for choosing Beckerman, he had to (replaces Danny williams). And Beasley and corona are at least in form. Brek Shea should be there, he's at least someone with some creativity. Although I'd like to see Josh gatt as well. donovan doesn't want to play and torres is hurt. JK had really no onther options.

I think the RB spot is Tony's to win if he can show well. I actually think that Cameron will get the nod at RB.

Eric Lichaj should for sure have been included, but Donovan doesn't want to play, Torres is hurt. he had to choose Beckerman because Danny Williams is sick. Had to choose corona and Beasley (they're at least in form). and as far as Brek Shea goes, it was either Adu or Josh Gatt. And he could have at least selected Josh Gatt. Dude's a stud and deserves it. but that defense is just pathetic.

This does not look like a defense we can win with. No Cherundolo, Bocanegra, Chandler. An entire defense filled with untested MLS players!! Beasley, Beckermann and Corona have no good reason to be chosen. Donovan, Gatt, Adu and Torres are much better choices or even Feilhaber. Our WC chances don't look good if we don't win our next game.
I agree with Ken Roth. Why no chance for Lichaj as he is playing in the EPL.

Two players from a Poor Relegation headed Hoffenheim, but no Francisco Torres from 1st place Tigres of Mexico? And Brek Shea is a complete joke, this guy has not earned a spot on this roster. Tony Beltran is not even a top 5 American Right Back in MLS.

Wow!! Our defenders are depleting fast. May be Klinsmann is thinking about deploying 3-5-2.. It seems like we have a plenty of options in the midfield. Even though I think Edu may be a better option for CB than mid.

Why doesn't Eric Lichaj get a shot with this team?
