Ninety Plus' 23 for World Cup Qualifying
Haven't had one of these features for several months, but with World Cup Qualifying right around the corner (only some nine months off), it's becoming close to time that Klinsmann get a solid core of players to build around. This will be a simple post where I'll just drop the 23 players I would call on if World Cup Qualifying started tomorrow. This group bars all injuries and has no regard for club playing time. Here we go.
Goalkeepers: Tim Howard (Everton FC), Brad Guzan (Aston Villa FC), Bill Hamid (DC United)
Defenders: Timothy Chandler (FC Nurnberg), Steve Cherundolo (Hannover 96), Carlos Bocanegra (Rangers), Clarence Goodson (Brondby), Tim Ream (New York Red Bulls), Zak Whitbread (Norwich City), Eric Lichaj (Aston Villa FC)
Midfielders: Sacha Kljestan (Anderlecht), Fabian Johnson (Hoffenheim), Michael Bradley (Chievo), Jermaine Jones (FC Schalke), Stuart Holden (Bolton), Maurice Edu (Rangers), Jose Francisco Torres (Pachuca), Alejandro Bedoya (Rangers), Brek Shea (FC Dallas)
Forwards: Clint Dempsey (Fulham FC), Landon Donovan (LA Galaxy), Jozy Altidore (AZ Alkmaar), Juan Agudelo (New York Red Bulls)
So there you have it, what does everyone think?
