USMNT's 23=man roster announced today...the only BIG surprise?
No Landon Donovan.
Wow, Klinsmann is out to make a statement.
2014 FIFA WORLD CUP –
(3): Brad Guzan (Aston Villa), Tim Howard (Everton), Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake)
(8): DaMarcus Beasley (Puebla), Matt Besler (Sporting Kansas City), John Brooks (Hertha Berlin), Geoff Cameron (Stoke City), Timmy Chandler (Nürnberg), Omar Gonzalez (LA Galaxy), Fabian Johnson (Borussia Mönchengladbach), DeAndre Yedlin (Seattle Sounders FC)

I'm a little concerned but IN JURGEN I TRUST!
Notable missing names:
Terrence Boyd and Landon Donovan, Joe Corona and Maurice Edu, Brad Evans, Clarence Goodson and Michael Parkhurst.
Goodson and Donovan surprised me. But Klinsman has chosen 10 players from MLS teams
Has MLS caught up to the rest of the world? Maybe not, but the quality of football is much, much better than a few years ago!
