too bad we won't have the overseas players

I heard that the Canadian association will bring an under 23 roster for this match......since it is not a Fifa day for international friendly..

Je m'en fous.........

Judging by the "USA roster" link above, the Americans won't have any of their overseas players either.

I believe it is.

Kevin is making his debut with the national team, as are Marco Reda and Atiba Hutchinson.

I believe they play in the VMSL (or something like that), which is basically a Vancouver area senior men's league.

Americans start gearing up for 2003 tourneys

Associated Press

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- U.S. coach Bruce Arena has turned to youth for his team's first game of the year.

Three players could make their national team debuts Saturday night against Canada, and 11 others on the U.S. roster have fewer than five international appearances.

"It's basically a starting point for evaluating new pool of players,'' Arena said. "You want to give some new players some opportunities and see how they respond. I imagine our average age on the team will be 23 years old.''

The United States was 13-6-1 last year, setting a national record for victories and advancing to the quarterfinals of the World Cup, the best showing by the Americans since the first tournament in 1930. Arena was rewarded with a new four-year contract in December.

To start preparations for the 2006 World Cup, Arena will use this year mostly to assess young talent. The highlights of the American schedule are the FIFA Confederations Cup in June and July's CONCACAF Gold Cup, the championship of North and Central America and the Caribbean.

The most experienced player on the roster for the Canada game is 20-year-old forward Landon Donovan, who has 29 international appearances.

"The reason I think that this team succeeded is that they had young people like us nipping at them all the time, trying to take their spots, and it makes them better players,'' Donovan said. "I hope they come up and give me a scare, too. It's good for us.''

Donovan joked that he was sporting new facial hair to appear older.

"That's why I'm growing the beard -- for maturity purposes,'' he laughed.

World Cup veteran Pablo Mastroeni feels like a grizzled veteran.

"For people of a certain age, like myself or Clint Mathis, it's a matter of what you have to take away from your lifestyle in order to better your professional life,'' Mastroeni said. "I'm 26 now, I've got to exercise every day and take care of what I eat. I can't go out like Donovan and eat a Big Mac every day.''

DaMarcus Beasley, 20, is happy to be gaining some seniority.

"Not being the youngest guy anymore feels pretty good,'' he said. "But it doesn't matter if you're a young player. What coach does is throw you in the pond and he'll see if you can swim.''

The U.S. won't be the only team featuring young players. Canada also will be without some of its players, who are with clubs in Europe.

Canada coach Holger Osiek called in four players from a youth camp in Mexico to fill in for injured players and for Paul Fenwick, who has food poisoning.

The Canadians, who haven't beaten the United States in 17 years, will try to erase memories of their last meeting with the United States -- a loss in penalty kicks in the semifinals of the 2002 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

I watched the game on Fox Sports World and I was sick. We deserve better. A lot of our players are playing either in Europe in First division Leagues or 2nd division Leagues and the teams just cant click. I think for us to repeat our success in the WC 86 we have to get a new coach and build a core who play with heart.

This is really bad for the Canadian soccer program....It's very demoralising!!! every time Canada lost by a large margin
and the worst thing about it is that we lost to the U.S that did not have its best players available for that match

Well we didn't have our best, and 2nd best, and most of our third best players though.

I honestly believe that if we had our best boys we could play with them.

The $$ pumped into their program is showing, we could use some for our program but how and where are two questions I'd like to leave open for anyone brave enough to tackle them.


Cheers


It will get better.

OK, I'm calling you guys on this.

If this was our "third-rate" or "C-team", who's our A-team and our B-team?

Name your 11-man lineups for the A and B squads.

I'll start:

Canada "A" team
Goal - Onstad
Defenders - De Vos, McKenna, Fenwick, Brennan
Midfielders - Bent, Hastings, Stalteri, Imhof
Forwards - Radzinski, De Rosario

Canada "B" team
Goal - Hirschfeld
Defenders - Rogers, Menezes, Fletcher, Pozniak
Midfielders - De Guzman, Clarke, Nsaliwa, Dasovic
Forwards - Xausa, Peschisolido

That first team would still do much better than the one that played.

All I'm saying is that we did not have our full potential out there.

Other countries don't either I know but they have longer benches and we certainly don't.

Heck that a-team would hold US 1-1

We won the Gold Cup not too long ago and we still have some decent potential within CONCACAF/The Football Confederation or whatever they call it now.

Hirschfeld

Fenwick,DeVos,Brennan
Bent,Imhof,Staltieri,DeRosario
------------Radzinski,----------
Peschisolido,Xausa

Radzinski having the ability to hold the ball more in the middle I believe would be invaluable. Bent and DeRosario on the flanks, very good and our back three would be excellent. Only question would be the front two but with the suredly quality balls they'd be getting I reckon some nice goals peppered over the next qualifying campaign.

Cheers
