    USA vs. Poland (July 11th in Chicago)

    Here is the USA's roster for the game against Poland:

    Goalkeepers: Tim Howard (Manchester United, England), Zach Thornton

    Defenders: Chris Albright (Los Angeles), Carlos Bocanegra (Fulham, England, Steve Cherundolo (Hannover, Germany), Cory Gibbs (Dallas), Pablo Mastroeni (Colorado), Eddie Pope (MetroStars)

    Midfielders: Chris Armas (Chicago), DaMarcus Beasley (Chicago), Bobby Convey (D.C. United), Landon Donovan (San Jose), Eddie Gaven (MetroStars), Brian Mullan (San Jose), Kerry Zavagnin (Kansas City)

    Forwards: Brian Ching (San Jose), Brian McBride (Fulham, England), Josh Wolff (Kansas City)

    Eddie Gaven got his first call to the national team, and it definitely won't be his last. He is only 17 and has been pretty good this year for the Metros. This isn't our top side but Bruce called up some guys who are doing pretty well in MLS this year and deserve a chance to show if they can play for the national team. This isn't a bad roster for a friendly.

    The roster looks pretty good for a friendly as you said. I predict a 1-1 tie for some reaosn...

    Ching got called up, I think he can ball in MLS but not on the national level. Also, good to see Gaven getting called up, the man is a baller and he is only one year older than me . I expect him to come in in the 70th minute or so and get his first cap.

    When do you guys think we<ll see Adu playing for team USA???
    How has he progressed this year in MLS ??
    With all the talk surrounding him i'm interested to know how hes moving along..
    Once, after a blast of six or seven yards, Brown was the first to regain his feet. When he got back to the huddle he was blowing hard - but the inert figures of three Giants marked the trail where he had passed, like the breadcrumbs on the forest path of Hansel and Gretel. For mercurial speed, airy nimbleness and explosive violence in one package of undistilled evil, there is no other like Mr. Brown.

    He is doing okay, not the superstar of the league, but not bad. He is just okay right now, and what more could you ask for of a kid who started playing in the MLS at 14 and just recently turned 15. I think we will see him on the US National team around the ages of 17. Give him a couple of more years.

    Adu said recently that this season isn't going as well as he expected. He scored one nice goal but overall he has been a lot of hype and that's it. He has a lot of potential but he really hasn't played that great, but he is only 15 so not much should be expected anyway. I think Adu will eventually be playing for the US national team, but it won't be anytime soon.

    Manchester United may be interested in Eddie Gaven. I'd rather see him stay in MLS for a few years since he will never play for the a senior side in Europe but I think it is good that Gaven is drawing interest from abroad. He is only 17 and has been awesome in MLS this year.

    Manchester United has had some success with Americans so it doesn't surprise me that they would be interested in Gaven. Obviously Tim Howard was a good buy for them. Kenny Cooper (an American) was their Youth Academy player of the year or something like that and Jonathan Spector (another American) has been on the bench for a few first team games.
