    OK, can anyone help me follow Bruce's thought process in not only calling up Corrales but starting him ahead of Dempsey and Martino? :confused:

    This was a throwaway game. You don't get many of those in WCQ, especially against a team that has everything to play for. R.C. got his midterm test, and failed. I'm not sure he'll be called back for the final exam.

    Neither of them are left-sided middies. Doesn't matter, this solidifies that Ramiro will not be playing for the USA again.

    Why Corrales, though? There are a number of other Quakes I'd rather see in a USA uniform.

    I guess The Bruce was hoping for a late-game field goal.

    Point 1- Dempsey was subbed in for Corrales.

    Point 2- I hope not. There's a reason the SJ fans are brutal on him.

    I also agree with revolt that there are a bunch of other Quakes who are more deserving of MNT recognition.

    I kept wondering if he was just some numpty off the street who won some Snickers bar sweepstakes or something...
