Video: USA Dusts Off The Cleats For Argentina

“Messi this…”

“Messi that…”

“Messi once scored two goals in a game while saving a baby from a burning building and painting a Picasso.”

    Erm, did I just see Marcus Hahnemann in that video clip? What on earth is a GK who cannot get into a relegation-threatened Wolverhampton Wanderers side doing here? Nevermind that he will be 39 in June. If he was playing regularly and had the ability to be pushing Howard for the starting spot, then fair enough, his age would be irrelevant. But he’s not, is he? Nowhere flipping near. Surely there’s an American keeper in MLS who would be better suited to be invited to train with the A-team? Perhaps somebody that can be groomed…


    • Agree.

      But he is in camp because Guzan will not be at the Gold Cup…so my guess is BB wants to have at least 1 backup keeper that has been in the system and is a known commodity at the Gold Cup.

      Personally I think I would rather have seen Johnson also included to really evaluate who should be there come Gold Cup time. Would rather rely on skill then familiarity for alternate keepers but I see the reason he was called in.

        I thought the only reason that Guzan was missing these friendlies was due to his nuptials, no? Did not know he was not going to be there this summer for the Gold Cup.

          Well if he is not going to be at the Gold Cup then you have to try out the guys who might replace him at the Gold Cup ( Hahnemann or Yeldell).
