With the men's olympic team two days away from kicking off their Olympic Campaign, I thought it would be a good time to see who you fellas want out there on the pitch that first minute against Japan.

My starting eleven:

Guzan

Wynne-Parkhurst-Orozco-Edu

Adu-Bradley-Holden-Rogers

Altidore-McBride

US might actually make it into semifinals in this year's olympics.

Yeah It's possible, their obvious superiors being:

Brazil

Italy

Argentina

Netherlands

but i have a fear of the african teams

Cameroon

Cote d'ivoire

Nigeria

It'll be tough sledding, but i expect good things from our boys.

thats exactly what I would use...... most betting websites have the USA as the least likley to win their group.... with mcbride and Altidore up top and just now gettin used to each others style of play and Adu and Bradley running the mid field scoring goals should be expected

I don't know how they can put Japan ahead of us, maybe it's because the Japanese team will be more used to the climate? We have more overall talent then them that's for sure, guys like Adu,Altidore,Bradley and McBride. They do have, however, Takayuki Morimoto, who has been compared to a young Ronaldo....that's the brazilian Ronaldo. Combination of size, speed, and strength. He's a their only legitimate threat to us I think.

I think the most plausible way we get out of our group is that we beat Japan, and draw both the Netherlands and Nigeria, and hope that one of them drop a game.

--kljestan-------Adu-------Bradley-------Edu--------

----------------Mc Bride---Altidore------------------

I have a doubt there...maybe play Edu more back and put Feilhaber in the midfield...but something like that!

I put Edu on the defensive line only because he has been playing there in the ING Cup. Nowak must like him there for a reason.
