Less than five months remain until the World Cup, and it is time once again to check on who will make the plane ride to Germany this summer.

Nagging injuries are beginning to drop players like Eddie Johnson and John O'Brien down the ladder, while the forward and left back races are heating up in earnest.

Jonathan Spector barely retains his place in our 23 ahead of hard chargers Todd Dunivant and Heath Pearce. Meanwhile, Taylor Twellman returns to the good side of the bubble at the expense of the injured Chris Albright.

As always, we want your feedback. Feel free to send in your 23-man list or comments to our http://www.yanks-abroad.com/content.php?mode=contact&action=show§ion=generalmailbox[endlink]
