USA Roster for Denmark Friendly

***LATE-NIGHT UPDATE: Jose Francisco Torres was scratched for personal reasons.***

As we told you earlier this morning, four new faces will join the USA squad and three have been dropped for Wednesday's away friendly against Denmark in Aarhus. Jose Francisco Torres (Pachuca), Edgar Castillo (Tigres), Stuart Holden (Houston) and Ricardo Clark (Houston) replace Clint Dempsey, Chad Marshall (injury) and Steve Cherundolo (injury). UPDATE: Marshall has a sore knee, but Cherundolo is fine after getting hurt in the late stages of the Slovakia match. He and Dempsey have returned to their clubs, presumably to allow others to gain playing time Wednesday.

Torres and Castillo, a 23-year-old left back in his first USA camp since renouncing Mexican eligibility, became available after their respective clubs played one another last night. Clark and Holden were recalled after the Dynamo's season-ending loss at Los Angeles on Friday.

GOALKEEPERS: Brad Guzan, Marcus Hahnemann, Troy Perkins.

DEFENDERS: Edgar Castillo, Carlos Bocanegra, Jonathan Spector, Jonathan Bornstein, Jimmy Conrad, Clarence Goodson, Heath Pearce, Frankie Hejduk.

MIDFIELDERS: Jose Francisco Torres, Michael Bradley, Benny Feilhaber, Robbie Rogers, Sasha Kljestan, Dax McCarty, Ricardo Clark, Stuart Holden.

FORWARDS: Jozy Altidore, Conor Casey, Eddie Johnson, Jeff Cunningham.

The start of the match (2:30 p.m. ET) will be shown on ESPN Classic and then become available on ESPN2 upon the completion of the Ukraine-Greece qualifier, which begins at 1 p.m.

Sure glad they're finally sitting Dempsey, that guy's a terd. We should swap out all of our EPL players for MLS players.

Oh wait, we don't have any EPL players.

Alitdore with Dempsey up top.

In lieu of Donovan as a mid, Torres and Holden with Feilhaber and Bradley. But the recent 90 minutes and trans Atlantic travel may prevent their starts.

And please, please, I hope Castillo can fill in for Bornstein, who at times looked overmatched against the Slovaks. But I doubt Bradley will send Castillo a start in his first match with the U.S. squad.

And stop giving time to McCarty. He has no place at this level.

Whoops, I missed that Dempsey was gone. The search for a possible Gooch replacement was narrowed by Spector's performance.

The search for Davies replacement? A work in progress. I still think it will be Dempsey, eventually, with Landon at Left mid.

Especially since she looked familiar, I had a case of WTF when I misread Emo as Emilio.

A question to all the readers,
I read about a summit for supporter clubs in seattle, anyone going?, im not wish I could go.
But if you are here is some info,

I went to the one in Dallas a couple of years ago. Interesting, but nothing earth-shaking. At that one the Quakes supporters group was there, preceding their having a team.

They generally take place the day before the Cup game.

With the Fire out, I would like to see Rolfe get a sniff on the USMNT. It's not as if our forwards are on fire (sorry).

What happened in the Maryland women's game?

The ACC won all of their tournament matches today.

WOW, 6 goal comeback by UVA women. I saw the halftime deficit of 2-0 during the ACC men's final, and thought they were toast. Sounds like an awesome game

Where is Orozco. Give me a damn break Bradley with Onyewu out you need to start planning a plan B and C. Goodson and Conrad are not better than Orozco. Orozco's team made the playoffs unlike Pachuca or Tigres. What a damn shame. He also helped Torres made his decision to pick the US. What a damn shame!!!

In addition to letting others get a shot at playing, Dolo was probably also released to be with his Hannover teammates as they cope with the loss of GK Enke.

Per Ives: "U.S. national team and Hannover 96 defender Steve Cherundolo was one of six pall bearers who carried Enke's casket out of the stadium."

They advanced. For all the scores:

Also, to repeat from an earlier thread, Bucknell ended the AU men's season.

VT women advance. They probably won't get past Portland. Ditto for Virginia at UCLA.

Bucknell. Do they play with buckyballs?

Oh hush. You knew it was coming.

FIFA bans Maradona for two months. He will miss a friendly against the Czech Republic.

Good to learn Dolo wasn't seriously injured. He really looked like he was in pain at the end of the Slovakia match. What a lousy weekend for him, too. A -- literally -- painful loss followed by being a pall bearer for a friend. Gaack.

Glad Cherundolo was able to go pay his respects.

Oh please, please, please can we see Torres play? Any chance that Baby Bradley could be benched for a match?

132 days until United's first 2010 league match!

I'm sorry to ask such a pedestrian question but I'm feeling lazy:
What time, channels, etc. is the game on Wednesday?

JFT has played non-stop for 2 years so I can only assume he opted out for rest and recuperation. It's better to take the time now than have him breakdown affecting form heading into the WC. Our players all need to have some sort of rest before the Cup if possible. JFT is smart to opt out if this is the case.

Bornstein must go.

he is horrible on D.

once again he pulled that dude down and caused the penalty kick.

he might provide a small offenssive advantage. but his defense is horrible.

was that tv info there all along? my bad... long day in the saddle.

UHH>> personal?

Torres' situation has about as much transparency as Bob's iron curtain of favoritism.

I just hope all is well.

It would have been nice to see Findley on this roster, but he has a final to play in. Good for RSL.

Posted by: no_recess | November 16, 2009 8:48 AM | Report abuse

So, is the whole match going to be on Classic? Because there's no actual way to set it up to record the match straight through, otherwise. There's no telling when the Quali might be over.

Thx,

Jay!

This goes without saying, but get Castillo in at left back IMMEDIATELY!
