Okay, so compared to the average American I am a soccer expert. But in the scheme if things I am far from one. One thing I know for sure is that the future of us soccer both on and off the field is bright. So knowing this I will try the impossible predicting the 23 players that will make the world cup roster four years from now. Hell I would be happy if I get 1/4 of the player right. I will do this based of the normal scheme of three goalies, eight defenders, eight midfielders and 4 strikers.
Tim Howard(Everton, English Primer League;31) ; goalies become good in soccer in there mid-thirties, Howard will be 35 next world cup meaning he could be better then he is now. Hard to belief because he is all ready one of the best in the world.
Brad Guzan (Aston Villa, English Primer League; 25); a young up-in-comer tagged has the replacement for Howard in the future so unless he gets hurt he will be on the team.
Samir Badr (FC Porto,
Oguchi Onyewu(AC Milan,Italy;28); he will be 32 which is a little but old for the world cup but he will be the only veteran on the back- line because the other 3 starter in this world cup will be well over 32 and are to old to make the team. And a veteran on the back-line during a world cup is almost a must.
Omar Gonzalez (
Gale Agbossoumonde (Sporting Braga, Portugal; 19); another young player European experience is priceless in this sport.
Tim Ream (New York RedBull,
Eric Lichaj (Aston Villa, English premier league; 21) what can I say another young up-and-comer. His time in
Kevin Alston(New England Revolution,
Jonathan Bornstein(Chivas USA,
Jonathan Spector (West Ham United, English Premier League; 24) he can play either left or right back, but is much better on the right. His experience in
Landon Donovan (LA Galaxy,
Clint Dempsey(Fulham, English Premier League;27) he will be 31 ageing for an international soccer player. He still will be a great player ahead of most other on the team.
Benny Feilhaber (AGF Aarush;
Jose Fransisco Torres(
Sebastian Lletget(West Ham, English Primer League;18) this was my hardest decision. But being this young and coming form a team that has produced players like Joe Cole, Rio Ferdinand, Frank Lampard and other great English players for bigger clubs is only a plus.
Jozy Altidore(Villarreal C.F.,
Yura Movsisyan(Randers; Denmark;22) this is a stretch for most people and I know this but he has played and scored regularly in Europe something that can not be said about most us players.
Chris Pontius(D.C. United,
Jurgen Klinsmann; a German coach that took
Most players are very young, but something that is not seen very often is despite there very young age most play in
