USMNT Has A Busy Spring

While the USMNT has not officially announced it yet, Brazil Linkis saying they are traveling to the US to face the USMNT either May 30th or 31st.

This is good news for the US as this now tallies our friendlies up to 4 and all against pretty good competition before we enter the WC qualifying cycle.

USMNT Schedule:
Jan 21 USMNT v Venezuela Univ. of Phoenix Stadium Glendale, AZ (tickets)
Jan 25 USMNT v Panama Estadio Rommel Fernandez Panama City, Panama
Feb 29 USMNT v Italy Stadio Luigi Ferraris Genoa, Italy
May 30/31 USMNT v Brazil Foxborough (or DC) Boston, PA/DC (tbd)

The US roster announced for the January matches:
GOALKEEPERS (3): Bill Hamid (D.C. United), Sean Johnson (Chicago Fire), Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake)
DEFENDERS (7): Geoff Cameron (Houston Dynamo), A.J. DeLaGarza (LA Galaxy), Omar Gonzalez (LA Galaxy), George John (FC Dallas), Zach Loyd (FC Dallas), Michael Parkhurst (FC Nordsjaelland), Heath Pearce (Chivas USA)
MIDFIELDERS (6): Kyle Beckerman (Real Salt Lake), Ricardo Clark (Eintracht Frankfurt), Benny Feilhaber (New England Revolution), Jeff Larentowicz (Colorado Rapids), Brek Shea (FC Dallas), Graham Zusi (Sporting Kansas City)
FORWARDS (4): Juan Agudelo (New York Red Bulls), Teal Bunbury (Sporting Kansas City), C.J. Sapong (Sporting Kansas City), Chris Wondolowski (San Jose Earthquakes)

There is also the outside possibility that we may match up with Argentina or Mexico in May/June as Brazil will be playing both in the US during their trip. So what do you think? Good stuff?
