Agudelo, Ream and Bunbury among USA call-ups vs. South Africa

  Juan Agudelo (ISIPhotos.com)


The U.S. Men's national team has called up an inexperienced squad loaded with youth for next week's friendly against South Africa (Wednesday, 2pm).

Juan Agudelo, Teal Bunbury, Gale Agbossoumonde and Tim Ream are among the selections.

Here is the squad:


GK-Brad Guzan, Dom Cervi

D- Clarence Goodson, Jonathan Spector, Jonathan Bornstein, Eric Lichaj, Nat Borchers, Tim Ream, Gale Agbossoumonde

M-Alejandro Bedoya, Eddie Gaven, Brian Carroll Logan Pause, Robbie Rogers, Mikkel Diskerud

F-Robbie Findley, Juan Agudelo, Teal Bunbury


The Teal Bunbury call-up is sure to turn heads in Canada. Bunbury had previously represented Canada on the youth national team level, but is elgible for both countries.

Agbossoumonde and Agudelo are members of the current U.S. Under-20 national team set-up and have yet to make national team appearances.

    A sane mentality that both realizes the purpose of this game and acknowledges that it is probably going to be a tough game for these newbies. Props.

    I like Braun, hope he gets called up in January, but I’m not sure he’s better than Findley, not yet anyway. Findley certainly has more pace than Braun, and I think a bit better at holding the ball. We have to ask, would Braun be a regular starter on RSL? I’m not so sure…

    Bob saw Braun in the last camp, and has seen Findley plenty… I got to believe he knows what he is doing.

    But Braun is still developing… and I’m sure we’ll see him in January…

    this is good, we need new blood(i dont know what the f with findley though)if we can pick 1-3 players from this squad for the world cup next year this friendly would have done it job to give some early experience.

    I’m speechless. It will be very interesting to see what starting lineup we will see Wednesday. I can’t wait to see Bunbury, Agudelo, Ream, and Agbossoumonde against international talent.


  • Brock

    err… actually Bornstein had the clutch goal to qualify Honduras, and then he had a decent World Cup

    “I can’t wait to see Bunbury, Agudelo, Ream, and Agbossoumonde against international talent.”

    Truth. Those not excited about this game aren’t true fans.
