US Roster for Qualifier Announced

Thanks to the MNT blog for the video announcement of the roster for the upcoming WCQ vs. Guatemala on Wednesday. Nice to see Brad Guzan, Freddy Adu, and Jozy Altidore get called in. Experience playing against a desperate Guatemalan team will be vital for the trio, as playing time has been hard to come by for their respective European teams.


GOALKEEPERS (3): Brad Guzan (Aston Villa), Troy Perkins (Valerenga IF), Matt Pickens (out of contract)
DEFENDERS (6): Jonathan Bornstein (Chivas USA), Sean Franklin (Los Angeles Galaxy), Cory Gibbs (Colorado Rapids), Clarence Goodson (IK Start), Drew Moor (FC Dallas), Michael Parkhurst (New England Revolution)
MIDFIELDERS (5): Freddy Adu (AS Monaco), Ricardo Clark (Houston Dynamo), Sacha Kljestan (Chivas USA), Pablo Mastroeni (Colorado Rapids), John Thorrington (Chicago Fire)
FORWARDS (6): Jozy Altidore (Villarreal), Davy Arnaud (Kansas City Wizards), Conor Casey (Colorado Rapids), Brian Ching (Houston Dynamo), Kenny Cooper (FC Dallas), Chris Rolfe (Chicago Fire)

Who would you like to see in the starting line up?

Thanks for the comment. I'd like to see:

Altidore Cooper
Adu Mastroeni Clark Kljesten
Bornstein Gibbs Parkhurst Franklin

But, I bet Ching gets the start over Cooper and Moor gets in over Franklin.
