Default USAMNT World Cup Starting 11

Ok, so hopefully some people on this board follow and love USA soccer like I do. I'm getting super pumped for the world-cup because I truly believe the US will advance out of their group and get to the final 8 maybe with a stroke or two of good fortune the final 4. That would be the greatest thing ever other than them winning the world-cup.

So I want to hear people's opinions on who the starting 11 should be, what formation we should run, .... etc etc.

Lets talk USA Soccer!

Here is my ideal starting 11 from what I have seen.


Formation: 4-4-1-1 (Defensively adjusted with CDM's instead of CM's)

GK: Howard

Def: Timothy Chandler (LB) / Omar Gonzolez (CB) / Clarence Goodson (CB) / Demarcus Beasley (RB)

Mid: Landon Donovan (LM) / Jermaine Jones (CDM) / Michael Bradley (CDM) / Stuart Holden (RM)

Strikers: Clint Dempsey (Holding) / Jozy Altidore (Striker)


Subs: Fabian Johnson (RB/RM), Chris Wondolowski (My new favorite player (ST)), Brad Evans (LB/RB), Brad Guzan (GK), Kyle Beckerman (CDM), Eddie Johnson (ST), Oguchi Onyewu (CB), Matt Besler (CB), Jose Torres (CM), Brek Shea (LM/RM)


Tell me what the people think, and let me hear opinions.

I like your lineup a great deal, however I think Holden is a much better player in the center of the midfield. I'm really excited that we have people on this board that love soccer(football if you are Kaka...just kidding bro). The Yanks Are Coming...

Is Graham Zusi not goo enough to make the squad?
I follow the sport (will admit haven't been able to watch the recent gold cup matches) and his name seemed to always come up in friendlies or qualifiers.

Cameron instead of Beckerman.

Zusi instead of Shea. (As of right now, this could change)

Besler starts instead of Goodson.

I agree with all of these changes at the moment. Holden also is a better central player than being out wide. The main factor for him is to see how well he progresses in the next year.

no way, he's still uninspiring against top level defenses, and Jozy has been in GREAT form.

Gooch is overrated. He may not make the team.

No way Wondo starts over Jozy.

Jozy starts.

Dude's year has been very strong.

Will only help him now with his move to Sunderland.

Wonderboy does make better runs but jozy is bigger and stronger for dealing with contact and should get nod imo

I used to not be a Gooch fan, but I believe he is better than he has been in the past few years. Beasley...not a fan. He takes horrible angles and constantly gets beat

Jozy has come on as of late, but I am not impressed with his touch inside the box. He is an over the top striker and we can't play against top notch defenses like that. Just my .02

That's why Jozy is using his 1st touch to score and not his 2nd touch which is "the worst in the game" (Men in Blazers joke)

If Holden is completely healthy, may the most important man on the pitch for the US. Bradley may be 2nd. Granted this is from an offensive ball possession standpoint. Never dismiss the importance of Howard.

Bradley is currently the most important player. If Landon gets back he could be 2. Hopefully Holden get us healthy, match fit and back to form. Would be huge for team.

We also need to continue to see evolution of Gonzales and Besler. So far they look pretty good with very limited playing time together.

---------------Howard--------------

Evans------Beasler-----Omar-----Beasley

Zusi---------Jones-----Bradley-----Donovan

---------Dempsey-------Jozy------


I dont see any changes. Chandler looked weak the few games he had, Goodson is slow, I dont see Zusi moving anywhere, he has been playing great. Jozy is in great form. I can see Wondo pushing it but Wondo is just Wondo, he will choke in hard times. Holden is not on top form yet.

I agree with Kaka's lineup except maybe Holden over Jones. It's close though.
