Also fullbacks has been the weakest position in our Mnt pool so it wouldn't hurt to bring him in.

Lichaj with two goals in the first half! And the second was a wonder strike. Took the ball down on his chest at the top of the 18 and volleyed it in with the outside of his right foot. Brilliant.
COYB!!

He should have a backup role for the USMNT going forward. At LB in my opinion. Given we have Shaq Moore and Yedlin at RB. Antonee Robinson and Lichaj at LB.

You think Robinson should be our starting LB?? Don't get me wrong, I think the kid has tremendous potential. I'm also partial because he's an Everton player. But he's starting for Bolton, in the championship, near the bottom of the table. That should not be our starting left back, we have to have higher standards than that.

We don't have meaningful games for a while. Time to break him in. I don't see a long term future for Lichaj or Villafana at LB.

Robinson is 20 yrs old and is the highest rated player on his team. He'll play in the premier league before he's 22.
He'll be our best lb since Fabian.

Well it looks promising for Robinson but nothing is a given.

Lichaj was playing for Aston Villa in PL but never got a call. Given the young age of our outside backs perhaps having Lichaj's experience to mentor them would be helpful (unless of course Cherundolo becomes our next manager).

Bruce would still call in Demarcus Beasley after watching both goals

I believe that Lichaj should have had more opportunities last cycle. I feel that he could have been an option at either the RB or LB positions when we were struggling for options at both (Beasley, Yedlin, Chandler, etc...).
Not sure how he'll fit into the team for the upcoming cycle, but IMO he'll still have a roll to play in the transition to the emerging talent.

Well Lichaj is still dogless. His wife told him the only way he can get a dog was to get a hat trick. Haha

Unfortunately we don't have any current LB's playing at a higher level.

Before he was playing every game they were easily the worst team in the championship. The play of Bolton has been tied to when Robinson started playinh regularly. Plus, the advantage of not being in the wotld cup is that you can try a kid out this year and if it does not work out you can move on as a failed experiment.
