This kid was Highly regarded before he went out with an ACL Injury. Happy to see him make his return to full health and hope this is the start of a good string of appearances. If he has fully recovered form his injury he is one to watch ahead of the March playoff for a birth in the Olympics.

Scored a goal in friendly. Will be interesting to see what he can do in the 2nd half of the season. Not to mention his club is in position for promotion.

Yes I just hope he stays healthy going into the 2nd half of the season. Don't want another Terrance Boyd situation where his team is going for promotion while him being out injured. Knock on wood* He'll get his appearances here and there until he breaks out.

Played the 90' for Freiburg in the cup. He's been getting some run here and there as a substitute in the Bundesliga. He's always impressed me with his soccer IQ. Not as flashy as other players, Stanko to me has shown the ability to pass and move the ball, and intelligently clearing danger. He's not quite as mobile or looking to get forward as Adams, Acosta or McKennie will, but stanko plays with good positioning and is reliable with the ball in a deep position, as beckerman was.

Wasn't Beckerman one of our better players at one of the last tournaments we were in? It was either the ‘14 WC or the Copa. Sure he wasn't a world beater, but I would absolutely not label him as "trash" for the USMNT.
COYB!!

It was the '14 WC. He, Jones, Dempsey all showed up. It seems you've never watched a game @bjelks... beckerman at his best is exactly what we didn't have this cycle and basically why we didn't qualify against the midfields of Panama, Mexico, CR and T&T. Each of those games we were outmuscled and outdisciplined in that #6 spot. Stanko would love to play that position as well as beckerman.

Beckerman was very good at the WC. Better DM than Bradley.

Remember, our US hotshot coaches dont take ideas from Euro Hotshot coaches or German American players

Lol WC standouts were Jermaine Jones, Fab, John Brooks, Dempsey in that order.

The only time we knew Becks was on the field was when he was getting wrong footed, blown by, or muscled off the ball.

The only reasons Becks didn't look completely out of sorts were because he had Jones and Brooks covering, he had a very low expectations, and very limited responsibility.

He covered a 20 yd radius between our best ball winners, stole the ball when attackers were out of space or double teamed and successfully converted 3-5 yd passes.
Cmon anyone from my U-16 team could've done that job.

JK picked him because his pride had him out to prove a put, which backfired when he decided to again take Wondo over Boyd and Davis or Donovan.

Becks on his best day couldn't make a Bundesliga roster.

US fan base has to wake up and stop buying into the privileged kid mls bs

You are right Beckerman did not have to be great in 2014, he needed to do his job and protect the backline and allow Bradley and Jones get forward. Notice the one game he did not play our defense looked awful and forced Howard to save 16 shots on goal. Sometimes you need steady and somebody who knew his expectations and executed. Was he the best choice probably not, was he the right choice absolutely.

Brooks barely played. Besler was the starter, Brooks came in as a sub to score that goal. Stanko is American, from Michigan, not a germerican. I'm not an MLS guy, but you it seems @bjelks, are a name on paper guy. If you haven't seen them play, or you don't remember previous games, or if you have a bias that helps you mis-remember the World Cup... that's on you.
