Wow…a full year ago that the USMNT invited over Sweden for some friendly action in Carson, California.
Sacha Kljestan netted the 2nd hat trick to kick of a career in USMNT history and there were a number of other, now eye-popping milestones and memories:
• Danny Califf captained the team, it was also Robbie Rogers first cap.
• Tomorrow’s starting wingfulls could be the same: Marvell Wynne and Johnny Bornstein
• Charlies Davies started and was relieved by Kenny Cooper
My lasting memories of this one were Brian Ching’s agility, especially the the hook and ladder play to Kljestan for Sacha’s third deposit. And Kenny Cooper’s surprising run-on speed despite not scoring at the close.
