Tough choices for March friendlies 

February, 23, 2011

Since last week's post about the tough Gold Cup roster choices facing Bob Bradley generated plenty conversation, we decided it's not too early to wonder who the U.S. coach could call on for next month's friendlies against Argentina and Paraguay.

After all, these two tilts (March 26 in New Jersey and three days later in Nashville) will be Bradley's last chance to look at his first team up close before picking the 23 men who'll try to wrest the regional title from Mexico (and, in the process, qualify for the 2013 Confederations Cup in Brazil).
