    US vs. South Africa - international friendly

    US men playing this afternoon in Cape Town on ESPN2. Bradley is taking an ultra young squad to this match (Bornstein is the vet of the squad with 35 caps) so there will probably be some guys that make their first ever appearance for the USMNT. I'm looking forward to seeing Tim Ream in the back line with Lichaj. And I really, really hope that Bradley gets Agudelo out there at some point this afternoon.

    Nice! Any of the younger guys that were on the WC team making the trip? (Sorry, I don't know some of the end-of-the-bench guys that were on the WC team, so you may have already answered this in your original post.)

    Re: US vs. South Africa - international friendly

    Not many WC guys on this particular roster. Bornstein, Findley, Guzan, Spector, and Goodson are it I think. I really hope that Bradley uses this match as an opportunity to play some of the US young talent. Juan Agudelo is a 17 year old forward who filled in for Thierry Henry with the Red Bulls when Henry was out with an injury in the MLS playoffs. I'm excited to see what he can do if Bradley decides to get him in the match. Here's just a taste of what Agudelo can do with the ball...

    Frankly I'd like to see an international UNfriendly. Keep me posted when that happens. ;)

    You missed it - it's better known as the World Cup.

    Nice goal by Messi in extra time against Brazil. 1-0 Argentina.

    Findley drives me crazy. I'd much rather see one of the two young pups out there.

    It sounds like Findley might be getting subbed out at half for Bunbury. Hopefully Agudelo logs some solid minutes as well.

    Bunbury has done more in the first 10 minutes of the second than Findley did in the entire first half.

    Spector just came in at half. He's looked OK so far. Agudelo just subbing in for Rogers. I've been really impressed by Lichaj.

    Agudelo goal! Youngest player to ever score for the US. Assist from Diskerud. Another young gun subbed in, Gale Agbossoumonde.

    Re: US vs. South Africa - international friendly

    I really like the fact that Bradley is getting a lot of younger players involved. This will be very important for the 2014 WC in Brazil.

    I agree with the poster above, I am sick of Findley. It is time for the MNT to find some good young strikers who will actually score consistently.
