Well At Least There Still Is Hamsik…..Nick Out

A quick follow-up from some comments on Saturday:

Bendtner for Danishland

Reports now say that Arsenal and Danish striker Nicklas Bendtner is out for up to four weeks with a confirmed groin injury — which of course will sideline for the USMNT friendly on November 18th.

What a bummer.

TSG was really looking forward to the 6’4” Emirates man make a run on the right flank and the interior right side of the States backline. Bendtner is a handful in the air (with slightly more technical finesse, but less outright physicality of, say, Kenwyne Jones), but also a good ball handler and shooter. TSG was really looking forward to his attacks.

Alas, the USMNT will still face a world class offensive threat at Slovakia in the form of Marek Hamsik, who just won Goal.com’s Player of the Week nod.

Wait for…

…okay well, we’ll just use the joke now since he’s not playing: We’re wondering if  Bendtner is going to get the same, uh, treatment that he did in May for coming up short or lame on the pitch.
