Big names out of US team

A real shame for the US. On paper weakens them a little, but they do have greater depth than many other countries, as evidenced by the fact that they can draw on former national players to slip in relatively seamlessly. Would've been good to see how much James Brunmeier had progressed since spending time in Australia though.

Big names out of US team

Some of the inclusions would have been pretty painless. A bit closer look at the "ins" and you see Jay Mueller who I believe lives in Melbourne, Becker was listed as assistant coach (so would have been with the squad anyway) and Gambaro was listed as one of two Team Managers (who also would have been with the squad). Wouldn't suprise me if they didnt play unless they needed someone for a particular job (I think Mueller and BJ are ruckmen). But does give them the option if needed.
