Would be nice to see Chery and Propper given a chance against the yanks.

Friday June 5 20:30 Friendly against Team USA

Friday June 12 20:45 Qualifier away against Latvia

US Squad:

Quote:
GOALKEEPERS: Brad Guzan (Aston Villa), Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake), William Yarbrough (Leon)

DEFENDERS: Ventura Alvarado (America), John Brooks (Hertha Berlin), Timmy Chandler (Eintracht Frankfurt), Brad Evans (Seattle Sounders), Michael Orozco (Puebla), Brek Shea (Orlando City), DeAndre Yedlin (Tottenham)

MIDFIELDERS: Kyle Beckerman (Real Salt Lake), Michael Bradley (Toronto FC), Mix Diskerud (New York City FC), Miguel Ibarra (Minnesota United), Fabian Johnson (Borussia Monchengladbach), Jermaine Jones (New England Revolution), Alfredo Morales (Ingolstadt), Danny Williams (Reading)

FORWARDS: Juan Agudelo (New England Revolution), Aron Johansson (AZ Alkmaar), Bobby Wood (Erzgebirge Aue), Gyasi Zardes (Los Angeles Galaxy)
Guzan, Chandler, Brooks, Yedlin, Bradley, Johnson, Jones, Agudelo and Johansson are the players I've heard of.

Fer, Dost Nigel de Jong and Zoet are back home again. Fer and Dost are injured while De Jong got dropped for games we're supposed to attack in.

Yedlin looked great in the friendly vs Sydney FC on Saturday. You wonder how much impact all that travelling will have on him though. Shea is also a fullback who likes to get forward so there may be an opportunity for the Oranje wingers there.

Dropping de Jong because he is too defensive

What would the line-up (full strength) look like then. Something like:

Cillessen

Janmaat - Vlaar - de Vrij - Willems

Blind

Sneijder - ?

? - van Persie - Memphis

Robben's spot and that final midfield spot are probably the tightest calls atm

We might see a B team vs the USA however

Might as well give Promes two games to prove himself on the right. He's been touted around quite a few clubs recently.

Could be anyone in that other position. Wijnaldum is probably favourite, but I hope to see Propper at least be given 45 minutes against the USA.

Yeah, might as well give guys like Propper, Chery and Berghuis minutes vs the USA and keep the main group fit for the qualifier

I really hope that Chery and Pröpper will play, they really deserve it according to their performances in the Eredivisie. I think one of them is going to make it to the starting eleven, while Sneijder had a tough schedule in Turkey the last few weeks. I like the fact that Berghuis is in the squad, but Promes - excellent season at Spartak Moskva - deserves a chance.

NL have been VERY poor since Propper came on and Blind has been shocking IMO.

USA look fairly shit too

Only saw the last 5 minutes. What was this all about ?

We can nowadays only comfortably beat Latvia and Moldova

A lack of organisation and control, two aspects Oranje scored high on during the WC. I wonder what Hiddink really wants, what his plan is. How does he want to reduce the defensive weaknesses? That should be one of his main concerns, but he does nothing about it. Four attackers + Gini won't improve the stability in the team.

I'm not a fan of Guus' all out attack tactic either

Disappointed that Chery and Berghuis got 0 minutes as well

Propper, Chery and Veltman are the 3 that got dropped so to make it a 23 man squad to face Latvia on Friday

Berghuis who got 0 minutes vs the US is still in the squad however

Guus' line-up for the Latvia qualifier:

Cillessen

vd Wiel - de Vrij - BMI - Willems

Sneijder - Blind
van Persie

Narsingh - Huntelaar - Memphis

So more 'hoof it into the box and hope for the best' type football then

Not a good match but at least 3 points and a clean sheet.

The big test for Guus' and his beloved tactics will be in September with games vs Iceland and Turkey

A monkey in a suit could guide the Oranje to a win vs Latvia
