  1. What do you mean no surprises…! Ching is there and no Twellman.
    Aside from that its a solid team – the best in a long time.

  2. I believe Twellman’s exclusion is a bit of a surprise, but not outside the limits of reason. Ching’s been on a tear recently and I believe it was his four goals in the MLS opener for Houston that won him his spot.
    Bob, I agree w/ you on Conrad over Berhalter… that is sort of wierd!
    I guess what I meant by surprise was somebody out of the blue, or someone out of Nike- like Adu. :-)

  3. Yes, it IS surprising that Twellman didn’t get the nod. Ching four goals in the opener may have boosted his stock in Arena’s eyes, Brian, arguably wasn’t playing the caliber of competition he would face in Germany. Yes, we don’t know how Twellman would fare, but I think he would have risen to the occasion.

  4. HI EVERY ONE IM FROM KOSOVO I THINK THAT US TEAMS WILL BE CHAMPION.BUT ONE THINK I DONT LIKE TO NBA PLAYERS NBA HAS A LOT PLAYERS WHY THEY DONT PLAY FOR NATIONAL TEAM
