    Out? You mean injured or something?

    Out of the bidding contest I meant. Don't think ManU will fork out another 40 Mio £ or so on one player.

    He seems to be good enough for Klinsmanm and the national side. That's all what matters I guess :-)

    well, although not a great scorer...his speed and athletism is much needed on the US side. If nothing else it will open things up for Bradley and Dempsey. Either way the US is going to really struggle to score against a very good Belgium defense.

    This. Jozy adds an element that no other US player can provide . . . and something the opposing team must contend with.

    Yes, and although we are outmatched at almost every position, at least we have a coach who can manage around our weaknesses. Klinsmann knows Belgium very well, and I suspect he'll figure out a way to keep things close..
    Both teams have exceptional goal keepers as well...

    I predict a very close match, but Belgium pulling away late 2-0. They are youthful, well rested and ultimately more talented.

    Getting back to World Cup, referring to the earlier point by Heisenberg (aka Walter White), many teams look good on paper, but its how they actually perform that matters, not what their FIFA ranking is or what players are on their roster. Which made me wonder, which traditional football power will be eliminated next?
    Elle is German .....
