All that finger-crossing you did for Fabian Johnson to recover in time for the start of World Cup Qualifying didn't work. Apparently it tweaked Edgar Castillo's hamstring too.
Point is, the U.S. is out of regular left backs less than a day away from kickoff with Antigua and Barbuda.
This shouldn't be a huge deal as Parkhurst has played just about every defensive position known to man this season for Nordsjælland and Bocanegra still has a left foot. But man, if there was one spot where we didn't need to lose more speed, that was it.
Some have called for Cameron to slide over and I recall Onyewu having played LCB in a 3-5-2 for FC Twente at one point. That said, shifting Boca over with Cameron or Onyewu partnering Goodson is probably the safest bet at this point.
