FC Dallas midfielder Dax McCarty has replaced Real Salt Lake midfielder/defender Nathan Sturgis on the U.S. Olympic team after Sturgis suffered a right hamstring injury during training.
The loss of Sturgis leaves the U.S. team with four natural defenders on its roster (Parkhurst, Wynne, Orozco and Ianni) and a fifth in converted midfielder Maurice Edu.
What do you think of McCarty replacing Sturgis? Is the U.S. team’s lack of defenders a cause for concern? Should U.S. coach Peter Nowak have called in another defender?
