An Ode to January...how we wish camp was at the state-of-the-art HDC
Some Tuesday Notes:
From US Soccer:
• Edson Buddle, Landon Donovan, Benny Feilhaber Clarence Goodson and Jose Torres train for the first time today. Buddle, Donovan and Torres spent yesterday getting physicals, while Feilhaber and Goodson arrived into the country Monday afternoon. They practice today.
• Brian Ching and Eddie Johnson are excused from training to complete their physicals
From Steve Goff, Washington Post:
• Marshall running on side, Johnson and Ching finishing physicals, Howard and Bocanegra participating to some extent.
• Stuart Holden revealed that he was on the same flight back to England after the Netherlands friendly as Nigel DeJong, the player who broke his leg with a studs-up challenge. There was no apology from DeJong.
• Landon Donovan quoted that this is the best team he’s played on, but it’s lacking experience. That’s the same thing he told Kyle Martino a few weeks ago if you read our interview
• Jonathan Spector prefers rightback, not left….that’s was TSG thought too….
• Italy cuts national team roster to three. Rumored to be dropped, Guiseppi Rossi makes the cut.
