As Greg promised, here are those USMNT roster changes:
In: Sacha Kljestan, Brek Shea
Out: Landon Donovan, Jermaine Jones, Jose Torres, Timmy Chandler
Keep your eyes open, too. Further moves could be on the way today.
Nothing to be too worried about with Landon, I'd hope. I'm hearing bronchitis, which, judging by Liverpool's lovely weather, should clear up once he spends a few days sucking down those SoCal rays. But injuries waylaid the other three, with Jones (calf), Chandler (hamstring) and Torres (hamstring) killing depth. That takes some of the starch out of this one. Would love to finally see Landon and Dempsey on the field together under Klinsmann.
Nice to see Brek get another crack. And finally Sacha gets another look. Even if it took injuries to nearly half the call-ups to get it. Jeez, Jurgi. Belgium has a real league, y'know, and Anderlecht is in it.
