The United States is getting ready to take on Antigua and Barbuda in their 2014 World Cup qualifying opener and all looks good. They are fit and have an easy opener. Well, that is except for left back, where the U.S. is out of options after Johnson and Castillo have gone down.
That means that Carlos Bocanegra will have to slide out wide or someone will have to play very out of position. That could be Geoff Cameron or more likely, Steve Cherundolo or Michael Parkhurst. That sounds awful, but Jurgen Klinsmann isn't worried. Should we be concerned that he's not?
"We always have left backs. Anybody can play left back," Klinsmann said on Thursday.
Um, Jurgen, more than a decade of left back-less play from the Americans says otherwise. You can't play Antigua and Barbuda forever.
