Two steps away from seeing dream become reality:

Wondo Dempsey

Fabian Bradley Zusi
Jones
Beasley Besler Cameron Yedlin

Howard.

given a full 90, Wondo will score.

Wondo? Pepe, Hummels, Boateng, Luiz, Silva are all probably going to pummel him.

I have a cure for your illness: watch last years gold cup after we got through the amateur teams (Belize, Cuba). I just don't understand where this confidence in Wondo is coming from. BTW, Klinsmann has backed Jozy to have a big tournament, so I think he starts.

I love Jozy, and hope he gets the confidence he needs against Turkey and Nigeria. I dont trust he will make the right runs when we need it. Seriously though, no joking, "i BELIEVE" in Wondo (at least against Ghana's defenders).

No doubt, completely get that gut instinct you have for Wondo. To me, a lot of things have to break in his favor for him to contribute. And for the odds to work in his favor, the US has to create a lot of chances.

Jozy will make the right runs, as he usually does. He's back in a comfortable place with this the USMNT and I think he'll be fine.

Agree with that Richie. I'd like for Jozy's sake if he saw the ball go into the net before we go to Brazil. This will be a team effort like Italy '06 where its about the sum of the parts. Whoever plays against Ghana isnt guaranteed to play against Portugal or Germany.

Jozy will be given Ghana start no matter what. Aron will be his sub if he looks flat. Then Aron would get the next start. Wondo needs Jozy to slump and Aron to get hurt to have a chance at meaningful minutes

Complete blow out Ghana destroys south korea 4-0. I watched the game and I was shocked by the lack of tactical organization of south korea. While Ghana played well South Korea was horrendously bad. Jordan Ayew had the hatrick I am not sure if he even starts considering Asamoah Gyan is used as single striker in Ghanas formation. Although the way Jordan Ayew played tonight he might just break into the starting lineup. South Korea, Australia, and Iran will be knocked out in the group stage. This was a very weak year for asia qualifying. Anyways Ghana looks good and it will definitely be a challenge when we play them.

I saw the game as well and i wasnt really impressed by Ghana. Their defense is really shaky and if it wasnt for South Korea inability to finish it wouldnt have been a blown out. Obviously its also a friendly but from this game they look sloppy in the midfield and goals were all from Korea mistake. The less mistake we make the better we go also the more pressure we put that weak defense the better the chance they will give up the ball like Nigeria started to do after we scored the 2nd goal.

Kinda funny to think if John Anthony Brooks doesn't play in the World Cup, he still wont be cap-tied to the USA!

Lol if JAB doesn't get cap tied and somehow files a one time switch for Germany in the future. He would be one of the first to go to a wc and play for another team after.

Asia Federation is on the downslope. THe Pacific nations never capitalized on hosting. They peaked 4-6 years ago but havent invested in the infrastructure. Australia is on the downswing due to aging but they will be back in two cycles. Asia is shifting back to how it was pre-SK/Japan/Australia dominance when the only Asia teams that would qualify were the gulf coast teams. UAE, Iran, Uzbekistan, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Jordan, Qatar are all on the upswing and I bet next cycle one of the big pacific three misses out and then another one after that.
