ASN Morning Read: The U.S.-Mexico Roster Is Here
Twenty-two players get the call to join the latest installment of United States-Mexico; the most important voice in American soccer thinks the U.S. deserves a World Cup; Yedlin!
April 13, 2015
- The United States roser is out:
Bill Hamid (D.C. United), Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake), William Yarbrough (Club Leon)
Ventura Alvarado (Club America), Matt Besler (Sporting Kansas City), Brad Evans (Seattle Sounders FC), Greg Garza (Club Tijuana), Omar Gonzalez (LA Galaxy), Michael Orozco (Puebla), Brek Shea (Orlando City SC), DeAndre Yedlin (Tottenham Hotspur)
Kyle Beckerman (Real Salt Lake), Michael Bradley (Toronto FC), Joe Corona (Club Tijuana), Mix Diskerud (New York City FC), Miguel Ibarra (Minnesota United FC), Lee Nguyen (New England Revolution)
Juan Agudelo (New England Revolution), Julian Green (Hamburg), Jordan Morris (Stanford University), Chris Wondolowski (San Jose Earthquakes), Gyasi Zardes (LA Galaxy)
- Talk Jurgen Klinsmann:
- And quotes: “It’s very important that the players understand that even if they’re not with us for a long stretch of time that they’re always observed. We always watch them. We kind of suffer with them when things are not going so well, like a Julian Green, like a Juan Agudelo when he kind of had his journey through Europe, or Brek Shea, or Joe Corona who was injured. So every one of them have their own individual issues and have their down periods, their struggles, but that doesn’t mean that they’re out of sight.”
- Obviously: “It’s probably now at least as important for the international community to be in the United States as it is for the United States, in terms of hosting the World Cup. That’s my honest belief. It’s as important for the global game and everything we’ve been talking about today, and keeping that brand, whether it’s the brand of four letters or the brand of World Cup, where we would all like it to be.”
- Small victories:
DeAndre Yedlin completed all five passes today, best rate by any Tottenham player while he was in the game. #MeaninglesslySmallSampleSize

- I would definitely go to a World Cup co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand.
