The right back position for the USMNT has been an interesting spot over the last year.
Steve Cherundolo had locked down the position for years, but he officially announced his retirement yesterday. While Cherundolo has been battling knee issues over the last year, Brad Evans and Geoff Cameron have received most of the starts at the position.
The next guys on the depth chart after those two are likely Eric Lichaj and Timothy Chandler, but both of them are going through some injury issues at the moment.
For Timothy Chandler, his World Cup prospects likely took a big hit as Nurnberg manager Gertjan Verbeek told the press this week that Chandler is likely done for the season with his knee injury.
As for Eric Lichaj, he underwent double hernia surgery this week and no exact timetable has been set for his return.
“We are hoping that Eric will feature before the end of season,” Forest press officer Ben White told MLSsoccer.com on Wednesday.
If I were a betting man, I doubt you will see either in a US jersey come June.
