National Team Training Camp List

Busy day for View From the Couch. Steven Goff just posted the training camp list for the Nats camp in Denver next week. Now the roster for the qualifier next Wednesday will be a modified version of this, so there will be other players added, but it gives us a good idea of what we're likely to see.

Young, young, young. Not a surprise since the U.S. has nothing to play for having already qualified for the hex, while Guatemala has to win and get help. A good environment to expose some new faces to. The Colorado Rapids will have five players in camp; Pablo Mastroeni, Colin Clark, Nick LaBrocca, Cory Gibbs, and Conor Casey. Its not a surprise for the local team to be well represented in camp, its a convenient source of players for training. The interesting thing will be to see how many players make the game roster. My prediction is 3, Pablo, Gibbs, and either Casey. Maybe Clark. I'm sure LaBrocca is just there for training.
