    I’m a US supporter of course, but I can see an ugly game coming for the US.

    I see it 3-1 Brazil.

  2. tyduffy says:

    Why not use the friendlies to blood someone like Altidore who would be integral to success in 2010?

  3. Kartik says:

    Ty, you are 100% dead on. I’m really unhappy Altidore isn’t in this squad.

  4. Eplnfl says:

    Ok, Altidore and Adu should be on the squad. Altidore is still hurt I believe, in Bradley’s defense. All of the Chicago connection players are here except Brian McBride who can’t walk right now, but most likely could still score.

    You have to ask yourself why schedule this game and bring in players that have no chance of being around in 2010, while players you will count on are left off the squad.

    Well, since I paid my $100.00 for a ticket already, why would anyone listen to me, they have my money.

    As I write this response Chicago is in the middle of a heat wave and it could be very nasty for players at game time on Sunday.

  5. football detective says:

    This game reeks of a Nike cash grab.

  6. eplnfl says:

    for those players coming from England, they maybe happy with the game time weather. Cool and rainy is the forecast for Sunday game time. Practice in Chicago is still under very hot conditions upper 80′s.
