Jurgen Klinsmann named six forwards to his 30-man roster, but not all of them will be headed to Brazil.
Many fans have been debating the chances of each player make the final roster, especially Landon Donovan. The five other forwards on the provision roster are, Jozy Altidore, Aron Johannsson, Terrance Boyd, Chris Wondolowski and Clint Dempsey. Each player brings a new dynamic to the squad, but which ones make the biggest impact?
If Altidore or Johannsson did not make the final roster, it would cause a massive up-roar within U.S. Soccer fans. With Dempsey being named “Captain America”, there is no chance that he will miss the final cut-off, unless an injury occurs. From all the facts presented across the board, Donovan, Boyd and Wondolowski are the three players that will be fighting for the final forward roster spots.
Here are some fast facts for each player at the International level over their careers.
U.S. Soccer fans want a positive result at this World Cup, that is rather obvious. If Klinsmann is as smart as most fans think he is, the process of choosing the right players should come naturally to him. The USMNT has lacked a consistent goal scoring option over the past few years. Now, six players have the chance to become the primary scorer for the team. With all of these players at his finger-tips, who makes the most sense for Klinsmann to choose?
Does Klinsmann go with experience and confidence? Or should he go for speed and play-making abilities?
The USMNT Poll Question of the day want’s to know your thoughts on who is going to miss the plane to Brazil.
