You want him on the team. No questions about it.

There is a next gen movement going on with the French. Ala USMT.

And this is when the Germans should step up and win the World Cup. This has to be their time.

On the euro side, yeah. Not sure they will take down the South American elite. Actually probably not Spain either

Not a bad choice. Until the USMNT upsets them! (Wishful thinking)

I think the USMNT has a decent shot to get out of the group.

Fabian Johnson is looking like a budding star, and the midfield group of Beckerman/Jones/Bradley is looking pretty solid. If Jozy continues his newfound good form and Omar Gonzales never touches the field, the US should be pretty dangerous.

Ribery is great if on good condition, he is notre right now then next man up ( dedicated to coach Fox). Griezman is very good , we have to trust him or use Giroud ans Benzema together.
And Ribery is hard to manage in locker room. Our goal is th euro 2016 at home so it's a good oportunity to gain expérience for young players.

Solid midfield, but they don't have the speed or scheme to stop a healthy Renaldo. I cringe imagining Ronaldo blowing by Bekerman if the US push the flanks, ala Sweden in Portugals elimination match to qualify. I don't think the US has the Midfield to beat Portugal, and they don't have the team to beat Germany. The best we can hope for is a solid win against Uganda.

Uganda? u mean ghana?

i think the US team is alot more athletic than the sweden. I am hoping to for tie with portugal, win vs ghana and advance to the knockout stage.

we are in a really tough group this year. ghana and Germany are considered the best team in their respective continent. After those two, we gotta contend with 2 time player of the year

Blind pessimism is what that was, what I meant to say was Brazil in the final.

There are few things I'd rather see than Brazil get bounced before the finals and have the entire country riot, tear down all the new stadiums (if they don't fall down on their own in the next few days - only partially joking) and force the cancellation of the rest of the games.
