Sean Johnsonis a keeper that has had his ups and downs in the MLS. He Is currently training with Everton, the home of Tim Howard. Howard was not included in the roster. Johnson was also set to train with Stoke City. In the video game simulation, Johnson was the third keeper.
Defender Zach Loyd was new to the roster and the starting left back. He has three appearances with the USMNT and could be targeted this January as well.
Brek Shea makes and appearance and starts wide right. He has shown he can be valuable, but perhaps more as a substitute. With Josh Gatt on the other side there is a definite element of speed on the squad. It is interesting to note that Geoff Cameron was on the bench listed as a midfielder.
C.J. Sapong makes the squad and starts alongside in a two man front with Jozy Altidore. Sapong still has much to prove and this line up may not be the best given the outside speed and Jose Torres listed as the offensive midfielder.
Chris Pontius, Chad Marshall, and Altidore have made each roster.
