    • Tweeted a picture of himself on the exercise bike with caption be back soon. Somewhere else someone said he had an illness. Your guess is as good as mine.

    • It was definitely his knee that was being iced on the bench. Didn’t look good at all. There was nobody near him, he just took a bad step or something. That’s usually a bad sign.

  1. I could a defense: Chandler -Miagza -Cameron-CCV-Villafana

    Midfield: Mckennie-Williams-Gonzalez-Parks-Pulisic

    Forward: Novakovich

    • Villafana will be 33 at the next World Cup, he’s already a step slow against CONCACAF opponents don’t want to see what he would do against Portugal. Chandler and Williams will be 32 or 33 as well, might be needed next month with MLSers in the playoffs, but no point in using any of those three after November. Altidore unlikely to play in November with the MLS playoffs.
