   June 7, 2013 (8:17 AM) by Howie     Email This Post Email This Post
 

GOALKEEPERS (3): 1-Cody Cropper (Southampton FC; Maple Grove, Minn.), 12-Kendall McIntosh (Santa Clara; Santa Rosa, Calif.), 21-Zach Steffen (FC DELCO; Downington, Pa.)

DEFENDERS (7): 13-Eric Miller (Creighton; Woodbury, Minn.), 3-Juan Pablo Ocegueda (Guadalajara; Riverside, Calif.), 5-Shane O’Neill (Colorado Rapids; Boulder, Colo.), 18-Oscar Sorto (LA Galaxy; Los Angeles, Calif.), 4-Caleb Stanko (SC Freiburg; Holly, Mich.), 14-Javan Torre (UCLA; Santa Monica, Calif.), 2-DeAndre Yedlin (Seattle Sounders; Seattle, Wash.)

MIDFIELDERS (5): 16-Kellyn Acosta (FC Dallas; Plano, Texas), 10-Luis Gil (Real Salt Lake; Garden Grove, Calif.), 8-Benji Joya (Santos Laguna; San Jose, Calif.), 15-Mikey Lopez (Sporting Kansas City; Mission, Texas), 6-Wil Trapp (Columbus Crew; Gahanna, Ohio)

FORWARDS (6): 20-Daniel Cuevas (Santos Laguna; Sacramento, Calif.), 17-Danny Garcia (North Carolina; Dallas, Texas), 7-Victor Pineda (Chicago Fire; Bolingbrook, Ill.), 19-Alonso Hernandez (C.F. Monterrey; El Paso, Texas), 9-Mario Rodriguez (1. FC Kaiserslautern; North Hollywood, Calif.), 11-Jose Villarreal (LA Galaxy; Inglewood, Calif.)

It’s pretty similar to the Toulon roster, with Steffen, Villarrael, Gil, Rodriguez, and Yedlin added. Jordan Morris, Alfred Koroma, Marlon Hairston, Dillon Serna, Collin Martin, and Jeffrey Payeras have been dropped.

Here is an interesting piece from the NY Times on the various backgrounds of players on the roster.

    Why was Morris and Koroma dropped? I’ve heard only good things about Morris and I thought Koroma was one of the few players who could match the physicality of many of the bigger teams? Also Danny Garcia seems to be like a much lesser version of rodriguez and hernandez in terms of playing style so I wouldve thought Koroma would have given us more versatility up top. There wasn’t any changes to the defense either? Isn’t that kind of surprising considering that was our main weakness?

  2. Ian says:

    I’ve always been impressed when I’ve seen Koroma play.

  3. Kyle says:

    Down 3 surefire starters(Packwood,Pelosi,Brooks, no chance

  4. Mitch Malitz says:

    Yeah minus Packwood and pelosi, this team is a disgrace to us soccer. I doubt the added players will change the dynamic of this team. They were slightly competitive in toulon, but never near good enough.a real shame that we don’t appear to have a quality youth team right now.
