summoned 24 USMNT players to the isle for Wednesday's relocated friendly with Ukraine. The biggest surprise is Alfredo Morales. Perhaps he thinks Eric Lichaj needs a full club comeback form injury, but that has not been the rule on other occasions - such as, erm, right now with regards to Jermaine Jones. Anyhoooo, it is nice to see Brooks, Gooch and Ream back in the defensive mix and Agudelo returning to the attack stable. Actually, I would kinda like to see Juan work left wing for at least part this one.
Also, do remember that Julian Green is there only to train. He cannot play in the match. I know, I know... life is so unfair. I mean, just check out that beach the call-ups won't get anywhere near.
