US Announces South Africa Friendly Roster


Goalkeepers: Dominic Cervi (Glasgow Celtic, Scotland), Brad Guzan (Aston Villa, England)

Defenders: Gale Agbossoumonde (Estoril Praia, Portugal), Nat Borchers (Salt Lake), Jonathan Bornstein (Tigres, Mexico), Clarence Goodson (Brondby, Denmark), Eric Lichaj (Aston Villa, England), Tim Ream (New York), Jonathan Spector (West Ham, England)

Midfielders: Alejandro Bedoya (Orebro, Sweden), Brian Carroll (Columbus), Mikkel Diskerud (Stabaek, Norway), Eddie Gaven (Columbus), Logan Pause (Chicago), Robbie Rogers (Columbus)

Forwards: Juan Agudelo (New York), Teal Bunbury (Kansas City), Robbie Findley (Salt Lake)

Looks like we finally see someone other than Guzan or Howard between the pipes (maybe), as well as some promising young players. Lichaj will be getting the call and not too soon as he just made his 1st first team AV appearance yesterday and having yet to really get significant playing time with the US squad during the Colombia match, should see some more pitch time in South Africa.

So who are you excited to see?

  1. I don't know who saw the San Jose- NYRB semi final, but if you did then you saw Juan Agudelo light it up. John Harkes was calling for an immediate call up and it looks like he got it. He was amazing and had skill I've never seen from an American before. I can;t wait to see him play- dont miss it.

    But also appearing on that game was Tim Ream. He was absolutely shocking, and he was the one burned on Convey's second goal. Worst player on the pitch. I don't get it.

  2. The really big news here is Teal Bunbury, who suited up for Canada's U-17 and U-20 teams, choosing to play for the US, where he has no chance of ever making the team, over Canada. He was born in Hamilton, Ontario, but grew up in Minnesota. Interestingly, he is the first son of an MLS player (Alex Bunbury) to play in MLS.

    Alex Bunbury's MLS team? Kansas City Wizards. Alex Bunbury was playing for a team called the Hamilton Steelers when Teal was born in 1990
