Amazed there's only 11 players at overseas clubs. I wonder what it must be like playing against Chicago Fire or someone like that then playing against Portugal. Nightmare. At least Berhalter has the experience of taking on Crewe and Stockport. :rolleyes:


Still, they're in a sh!t group and could make the 2nd round.

It says something when our fourth choice central defender is in the world cup squad of the world's most powerful nation.

Not surprised that Kirovski isn't in there considering his recent performances.

Some of them are already owned by European teams and were sent back to the MLS to gain competitive experience. Berhalter got in on the strength of his recent performances in friendlies against European teams such as marking Italy's Vieri...

I dont think their group is crap. Portugal are one of the best teams and Poland were the first European side to qualify (and their group wasnt easy like Spain's). Taking on a host team is never fun and will definitely be more of a challenge than most of the other groups worst team. Getting to the 2nd round would be a top achievement for USA (where they would probably go out to Italy).
