The roster for the first hex qualifier is set. As you'd probably predict, I have a few squad gripes.
The most disconcerting is a near-to-complete lack of natural wide attack threats, a situation not helped by Klinsi' preference to play Fabian Johnson at the back. I've also listed the guys positionally how the USMNT release stacked 'em up - take from that what you will.
All in all, I'd expect a narrow look at Honduras and I mean that in all senses of the word. What ever happened to the elevation of our tactical system?
