You must have been thinking the same thing when you saw Brian Ching trot out to the lone striker position to start yesterday’s game against Honduras…wait you must have thought the following few things:
- Don’t we know what Ching is and is not capable of
- Adu to Ching back to Adu just doesn’t roll off your lips
- Don’t we need somebody in the front 6 that really knows how to put the ball in the back of the net.
While Bradley opted for experience, and Ching of course did score, it was a bit disconcerting not to see him put Kenny Cooper up for some trial-by-fire against some legitimate competition.
Look I don’t think Kenny Cooper may be the answer to anything up front for the USMNT, but let’s find out so we can get on with it.
Good bet we’ll see the Dallas target man up against Haiti, and if he has a good performance then people will doubt the competition.
The guy can’t win.
