Findley invited to US training camp
« on: October 09, 2007, 05:06:33 PM »
USA Training Roster Named
U.S. Coach Bob Bradley has invited 21 players to training camp prior to the Switzerland friendly next Wednesday in Basel. The final game-day roster will be unveiled early next week. Some intriguing selections, indeed. Nice to see Robbie Findley and Maurice Edu, as well as several U-20 lads, get a look.

GOALKEEPERS: Marcus Hahnemann (Reading FC), Tally Hall (Esbjerg), Chris Seitz (Real Salt Lake).

DEFENDERS: Carlos Bocanegra (Fulham FC), Steve Cherundolo (Hannover 96), Dan Califf (Aalborg BK), Jay Demerit (Watford FC), Oguchi Onyewu (Standard de Liege), Heath Pearce (Hansa Rostock), Steve Purdy (1860 Munich).

MIDFIELDERS: Freddy Adu (SL Benfica), DaMarcus Beasley (Glasgow Rangers), Michael Bradley (SC Heerenveen), Maurice Edu (Toronto FC), Benny Feilhaber (Derby County), Eddie Lewis (Derby County), Danny Szetela (Racing Santander).

FORWARDS: Clint Dempsey (Fulham FC), Robbie Findley (Real Salt Lake), Preston Zimmerman (Hamburger SV), Sal Zizzo (Hannover 96).

"This is a great opportunity to gather many of our European-based players to have some quality time together, with the reward at the end of it being a match against a very good Switzerland team," said Bradley. "We are continuing to develop our team as World Cup qualifying approaches, and this week gives us another good chance to integrate more players into our system."

At this point I no longer believe its the TTFF fault that he has not showed up for T&T training. It MUST be because the TTFF has invited him but he refused to come. Even the TTFF cannot be so incompetent as to blatantly ignore he and Randi Patterson so long.

I said that was going to happen months ago.  He may never make  USA team but if they play him in these upcoming games, neither will he ever be available to us.
Never, never, ever give up! Go T&T Warriors!

http://www.mlsnet.com//news/team_news.jsp?ymd=20071009&content_id=122271&vkey=pr_rsl&fext=.jsp&team=t121

Two RSL players named to U.S. Men's team
Seitz and Findley added to initial roster to train in Europe for Switzerland match


Meanwhile, the invite for Findley marks his first-ever call-up to a U.S. National Team on any level. However, that doesn't mean the services of the 22-year-old Oregon State product were not in high demand, as he had trained during the offseason with the Trinidad & Tobago Under-23 National Team and was still on the Soca Warriors' radar. Since Findley did not earn a senior "cap" with Trinidad & Tobago, where his parents were born and raised, he remained eligible to participate with the U.S. program, for which he will attempt to make his first appearance next week against Switzerland. Findley joins the U.S. camp as the leading scorer among MLS rookies with seven, five of which have come in an RSL uniform, making him the Utah side's co-leading scorer.

"It's definitely an honor to represent the United States in this training camp. It's a dream come true, really," Findley said. "Growing up I was always wanted to represent the U.S. on the field and now I'm going into this camp and looking to make a statement and earn more opportunities.

"It was a tough decision because my family grew up and was raised in Trinidad & Tobago, but I was raised here in the U.S. and that played a big part in it, and that's why I went with this decision," continued Findley. "There will be some guys there that have been through this and I'll be looking to learn from them. I'm looking forward to some good, challenging training sessions; meeting the other guys in the camp; and gaining as much experience as possible."

Trini 2010. It is impossible for a football organization to be as stupid as the TTFF is. Therefore the TTFF is not as stupid as it seems. ::)

Serously they could form an olympic team to beat Cuba and beat Barbados senior team with all the players that they left out, not including the senior warriors.

Carlon Murray, Findley, Shakes, Yohance Marshall, Jason Devenish, Patterson, Hyland, Richard Roy, Peltier, Makan Hislop, Josimar Belgrave, Abu Bahkr. Some are due to injuries or what not but lord almighty....enough is enough. Oh lord they cyah even call up Oral Bullen! :rotfl:

I agree. The more depth in each position, the better. But I woulda be more distraught if we did miss out on a promising defender or midfielder. That is where we really shallow.

I saw that comming a long time ago,  but yuh know what's really funny, i don't blame him,  after all , who the fack wants to play for a federation that's lazy, lying, vindictive, disruptive, dishonest, ungrateful, maniacal, backward, incompetent, disrespectful to their players, uncommitted, and selfdistructive. can anyone blame him. i know i can't. good luck R. Finley. i wont be supprise if the rest of the WC team said shove off to the ttff, and end their international career on that note. SA 2010 looking pretty bleak right about now, i wont be to supprise if we don't even get to the final 6, since men would not play with their heart and soul BC of the shyte they had to under go after the WC. LORD please rid us of this bummy addministration and replace them with competant people who care ah whole lot bout we football.

PS, if i forgot any negative adjectives please feel free to post them.                 positive.

Good sleuth work...knowing the character that is Hugo I wouldn't put it beyond him to just do this to keep pardna from the Americans.  Unless there really is something special about this kid he won't be a fixture, the Mexican pool too deep.

Findley played his youth soccer for the national powerhouse Sereno Golden Eagles. With Sereno, he won eight consecutive Arizona state championships, four Region IV championships, and reached the prestigious Dallas Cup finals. Sereno also competed in the USYSA National Championships in three straight years: 2002, 2003 and 2004. Findley was awarded the Golden Boot at the 2003 National Championships as Sereno took second place

If you check findley bio he has been overlooked by the US at youth level  ........  but bradley it seems making sure to cap him so he dont fall through the cracks ........

Findley also been overlooked by TTFF because clearly they had an opportunity to cap him earlier and didn't see it fit.

I don't blame Findley at all. The TTFF ain't playing no practice games. The boy was in limbo. The TTFF is in a state of confusion. He don't want to be in that. He chose the next best thing.
