Julian Green? Off of his sizzling 10 goals in Germany's 4th division.

But he was better than Landon in 2014, right Jurgen?

This is a good opportunity for green to show well for the USA. He can play in front of Fabian Johnson on the left side, and that could really help get him involved in the game. 4-5-1 with morales hyndman, and Danny Williams in the middle of the pitch. Bedoya out wide doing the dirty work that allows DY to break into the attack. Looks potent, feilhaber over hyndman would make it even more so, though. But hyndman is the future...

Luke, you make a fair point, even though Tim Howard is listed as a Colorado Rapid.

MLS players are not available. This gathering needs a moniker as it is the non-MLS version of "Camp Cupcake". PR friendly might be Sunil's thank you for the Infantino vote.
