Confirmed no Vela, Corona, Herrea, or Chicarito. Lozano named, but injured and hoping to be fit. 

If Lozano is not fit, El Tri could potentially be missing 5 starters.  If not all 5 starting, then all would at least play a role throughout the tournament and in most games.

One of each? Who against?

Deadline was the 16th. Today is the 17th. We need something to talk about.

I suppose the CSA didn’t schedule any friendly games as they will be skipping this Gold Cup in protest for the USA always hosting it.

I count 4: Duverger, Geffrard, Cantave and Sanon.

Didn't know Duverger was Canadian.  I counted the other 3.  Thanks.

Trying to predict our XI is a real challenge....

 

Cavalini-David (Locks)

Davies-Osorio/Kaye/Arfield-Hoilett/Millar

Hutch/Kaye/Piette 

?-Henry-?-ZBG

Borjan...

Larin, Jakson, Ballou, Worherspooon, Akindele, Miller are all on the bench to name a few.

 

real problem is our midfield.

Thought I'd add my lineup too sticking with Herdman's 4-3-3 that he has used against stronger opposition. It's quite similar to everyone else's.

Not sure how you can keep David off the field given his recent form. Also not sure who he would replace in that lineup. Tough call.

The front 6 has to be Cavallini, David, Hutchinson, Arfield, Hoilett, Davies. Any order, any combo and I don’t care about anyone else, just start with these 6 on the field.

Today the CSA was supposed to release the 40-man provisional roster for the Gold Cup, the same one that John Herdman submitted to CONCACAF on Thursday 

Nowhere to be seen, anyone know why?

I could be wrong, but I think I seen someone post they won’t release it till the 20th.

I’m thinking we go 3-5-2.  It maximizes our team talent.

 

           Cavallini.   David. 

Davies.       Arfield.       Hoilett. 

           Hutchinson.   Piette.   

James.       Henry.        ZBG.   

                   Borjan.  

 

Kaye can play instead of Hutch in some cases.

Thats a really good lineup in CONCACAF play.  It is probably good enough to make the 2022 World Cup with.

I don't think they'd want to draw any media attention away from the Women's game at BMO today.

We play 3 games in 8 days In the first round...

Depth gets us to the next round which is where I think this camnt team stands out from past teams  which is a good thing imho...

There  is no professional that starts all three of those games. Outside of maybe Borjan and a the Center backs... remember we play in heat( Pasadena) and at altitude in denver the travel across 3 time zones to play in Charlotte. the players physical output will be huge  and don’t forget knocks and small injuries....  I’m happy with the starting 11 (I think Liam is in the 2nd 11 atm and an impact sub for sure). but we need to look beyond it if we are to progress  Squad rotation will be key and decisions on who to play in what game...

its nice to have these problems... I won’t put my team up I’m biased but thought id add my 2cents!
