A Closer Look at the 23 for South Africa : The Goalies
1. Tim Howard: Timmy is the obvious starter for the Yanks,having been the starter since Kasey Keller retired after the 2006 World Cup. Howard has been one of the bright spots for Everton this year,a team currently leaking goals at the back and plagued with injuries.
2. Brad Guzan: El Guzano could be starting at European-bound Aston Villa if it wasn't for the stellar form of U.S Veteran Brad Freidel. Guzan will be backing up Howard in South Africa,but Howard better watch his back for 2014,Guzan is a young goalie with a tremendous upside.
3.Marcus Hahnemann: This is a tough call beetween Marcus and Troy Perkins,But I think experience will win out. After a solid career with Reading Hahnemann is now at Wolves and is trying to help them stay away from the drop. Since Hahnemann became starter at Wolves they have been picking up better results and are looking like a team that can escape relegation. He has had a great career and deserves to be on the roster to top it all off.
