Goodson - Solid defender
Brek Shea - Like his size and strength, able to physically dominate smaller defenders. Can be inconsistent. Good player to come off the bench and play physical against tired defenders.
Assuming the worst for Holden's knee? That's just brutal luck if it's as bad as they fear.
I agree with all of the choices. I remember advocating Beasley at left back late in the Bob Bradley regime and he got what seemed like one maybe two games there and they gave up on the experiment pretty quickly.
I've got to think this is going to be the deepest team the US will have ever brought to a World Cup.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
