Klinsman has been pretty consistent with calling up 23 man rosters for WC qualifiers, so I will continue with that.

GK: Guzan, Howard, Sean John
Defense: Dolo, Chandler, Cameron, Gonzo, Boca, Besler, Castillo, Fabian
Cm's: Bradley, Kljestan, Jones, Williams
AM's: Corona, Gatt, Zusi, Deuce
FWDS: EJ, Altidore, Gomez, Agudelo

I went with Agudelo over Boyd because I think he brings more creativity to the front line. Also I just like Agudelo more at the moment to come off of the bench and create a spark for this team if needed.

I could potentially see Corona get some serious minutes in this game. He has been very good for Tijuana at the start of the season.

Jones suffered an injury in Schalke's preseason game this weekend. No news yet on severity, but the article ( http://www.sportpulse.net/content/fc-schalke-... ) says he's expected to at least miss the season re-start (which I think he was already due to miss for suspension), so that could maybe keep him out of the first qualifier. I for one hope it does.

My predicted team:

GK: Howard, Guzan, Rimando
Defense: Dolo, Chandler (will he actually come?), Cameron, Gonzo, Boca, Fabian, Besler
Midfield: Bradley, Williams, Jones (if healthy), Gatt, Zusi, Dempsey, Diskerud, Beckerman, Brad Davis
FWD: EJ, Altidore, Gomez, Boyd

Starting 11 (4-1-3-2)

Howard
Chandler-Cameron-Gonzo-Fabian
Williams
Zusi - Bradley - Dempsey
EJ-Gomez


A big question for U.S. fans heading into the World Cup is surely on Jozy Altidore and just what is plaguing the young striker at Sunderland.
