ASN Morning Read: Geoff Cameron Is Sad
The United States defender or midfielder or whatever isn't pleased with his standing on the team, and for good reason; the Americans will battle a European team in November; here we come São Paulo.
broke his silence to the national soccer media in an interview with ESPNFC, and discussed his unclear role with the national team. "It's been tough with the national team. It’s been frustrating," Cameron said. "I was one of Jurgen’s mainstays, and then all of a sudden I kind of lost my position because I wasn’t playing center back and he wanted to give some other guys experience. I told Jurgen how I feel, that I'm frustrated because I’m playing week in and week out and then I come [into the national team] and I don’t even know where I’m playing or how you're feeling about me as a player.”
Cameron's teammates Brek Shea and Maurice Edu returned to the field for Stoke City. Sort of.
Grant Wahl has got some news for us. Depending on how its World Cup qualifying shakes out, the U.S. will likely play a friendly at Austria on Nov. 19, four days after playing Scotland in Glasgow. Also, the January camp will split its time between Los Angeles and São Paulo, where the U.S. will be based for the World Cup.
Wahl also reports that Jermaine Jones
will be with the team in Kansas City. There had been speculation he would be having surgery and miss a chunk of time, but U.S. Soccer refuted that report with a release yesterday. “I have had some minor issues with my knee for a while, and the plan is to take care of it during the winter break,” Jones said in the release. “Playing is obviously no problem. I will be in the team this weekend for the game against Augsburg and I’m ready to go for the National Team if I get called in.” That settles that.
