What can ya do when 43 injuries have hit the USMNT wingback stable? When times are lean, you stretch the meat. Thinking about group match-ups makes me set a minimum acceptable level at most defensive positions, pushing the risks that get taken into attack. Even if Timothy Chandler is back to fitness come May camp time, I am not sure he could freshen up in time for the left wingers we will face in Brazil.
And so, as bummed as it makes me, I probably cannot at this time say this one is subject to change. In fact, it seems a fairly safe bet this will be my right back clipboard on roster deadline day.
Gotta do what ya gotta do, man. And you're not always going to like it, but you do it anyway. Seems to me low scoring games are out best bet to advance past the group stage. Hence, Cambo is the new call here. And I'm okay with it.
