Time to start game-planning for this friendly, now that qualifying is behind us. I expect an all-euro based roster, since the game is scheduled during the MLS cup semifinals. Also, since Jurgen will have extended time to look at MLS players during the January camp, I don't think he'll make them fly to Russia for this one, though there could be one or two exceptions. Here's my expected roster: G: Howard, Guzan, Yelldell. Would like to see Yelldell brought back into the fold - he is training with a top team in Bayer Leverkeusen, even if he's not playing for them. Centerbacks: Cameron, Onyewu, Whitbread, Ream. I say let's give Boca and Goodson a rest for this one, we know what they have to offer. Hopefully one of Onyewu, Whitbread or Ream will get some club playing time in the next month and can be added to the depth chart. John Anthony Brooks is another young option to consider. Fullbacks: Fabian Johnson, Eric Lichaj, Michael Parkhurst, Jonathan Spector. Again, let's give Dolo a rest, no need to overwork those experienced legs. Would like to see Eric start on the right, and Fabian on the left. A young option could be Alfredo Morales. Centermids: Bradley, Jones, Williams, Edu. No explanation needed. Wingers: Kljestan, Bedoya, Diskerud, Gatt. The only other option is Shea, who's team won't be making the MLS playoffs, or Joe Gyau, who's had some minutes with Hetha Berlin. Not sure if Mix ever plays the wing, but that's the only place he's likely to fit on the USMNT roster. Forwards: Dempsey, Altidore, Boyd. And Aron Johannson if we can convince him to join us. If not, call a young striker like Tony Taylor, Andrew Wooten or Conor Doyle for the experience. Don't call up: Boca, Goodson, Dolo, Davies, Rogers, Findley. Boca and Dolo need a rest, Goodson isn't up to par, and Davies is still a long ways from pre-injury form. Rogers and Findley have both been total failures in the English leagues so far.
