    I'll keep saying it..... Berhalter needs to give Cohen a buzz. Our GK depth is shallow. Slim pickins', IMO, after Steffen. Matt Turner - maybe - but I give Cohen the edge.

    Oh.... on those highlights.... how did that first goal against Cohen stand? It looked like he was clearly impeded. Great PK. He got down so quick. I loved the reaction, too. Pure excitement and relief.

    I can see Josh getting called up to the Israel squad in the future.

    There is a lack of quality at that position. The starting goalkeeper, Ofir Marciano, plays for Hibs which is not really much of an upgrade from domestic competition. After that you have Ariel Harush who sits on the bench for FC Nitra in Slovakia. Last is Itamar Nitzan from Beitar Jerusalem.

    So the two goalkeepers that everyone is waiting for them to complete their five year residency are Maccabi Tel Aviv's Brazilian born keeper, Daniel Tenenbaum who has four years of residency and Josh who has almost two years. Both are younger than the current selection but Josh has a lot more time until he is eligible.
