Can you hear me now? (updated)

A pair of guys overlooked in Klinsi's first squad have sounded the bell in Europe tonight. First, Mikkel Diskerud got Stabæk's winning road rally started with the second half equalizer, and then not long after, Sacha Kljestan put Anderlecht up 1-0 near the half hour there. The first game is final, the second is not.

Check back for the clips...

UPDATE #1: The Mix tape has arrived, the play you want starts at 3:30.






UPDATE #2: Here is the reel with Klestan's flawless PK.

Greg how do you know they were overlooked... Maybe their clubs or even the players declined for one reason or another, did you ever think that?

There was no judgment of it intended. For whatever reason, good or bad, their names were looked over when filling out this particular squad. I'm sure the Belgium friendly will have several players not on this roster.

Baffled to why Mixx wasn't on the Gold Cup roster or this most recent roster. If he's shunned against Belgium wouldn't be shocked to see him switch to Norway.

@usry723, let me unbaffle you.
1) He's 20. 2) In which game and at who's expense would you have played him in the Gold Cup? 3) Maybe he was deserving of a call for this game, but then again there is plenty of time for him to make his mark. See #1

Youtube videos of Anderlecht-Mechelen highlights exist (for now).

Surprised to see Sacha on penalty duty. Breakout season in the works for him?
