The U.S. men's national team is set to begin a new year, and a new World Cup cycle, on Saturday in its kickoff friendly against Chile, and while there won't be any first-team regulars in action, the match will offer us the first glimpses of what the new year might be like.
The new year brings with it new challenges, and Bob Bradley will certainly be faced with different tests as he begins his second World Cup cycle. My latest Fox Soccer column focuses on Five Key Questions facing Bradley and the national team heading into 2011.
No, they aren't the only questions. We still don't know who will emerge as the next left back, and we also don't know if Oguchi Onyewu will return to the dominant form he enjoyed before his 2009 knee injury. There are lots of questions, and the U.S. national team will have plenty of time in the coming months to answer them.
Give my Fox Soccer piece a read and feel free to share your own thoughts on the coming year for the national team. What questions are most pressing about the national team in your mind? Feeling good about the new year?
