I would have preferred Lichaj, but I also didn't see anything...


...out of him at the gold cup that makes me think he was clearly a better choice.

Johnson...I can't say it was the wrong choice to sit him this game. He's coming off an injury, was clearly rusty and MIA against Costa Rica, probably not completely fit. Then you ask him to turn around 4 days later and play in Honduras after spending all his time lately in Germany.

At best that's a recipe for 60 minutes and a sub, imo. And you don't want to have to use a sub on a defender if you can help it.

I can't argue with not using Johnson in this game.
