US first fixture against Sweden

Bob Bradley said here at the soccer symposium that the US will have a January camp at HDC and that they will play Sweden here three weeks into camp.

Also he said that they will keep trying to talk to Guiseppe Rossi.

How did the topic of Rossi come up? can you give more details?

I think it's better to ask than not ask, but what would be one reason why Rossi would say yes to Bradley? His hopes to join Italy have to be improving given his recent play.

Try all you want but when you name your kid Guiseppe, he isn't going to play for the USNT even if they offered him free pizza.

Forza Italia!

Well at least Bob is trying. I wonder if having Klinsmann as our Nat coach would have factored in him playing for USA.

He was asked about rossi directly. He gave a longer answer about knowing rossi and his dad a little bit back in the day and how he watched him play on the weekend. I'm on the freeway right now but I will post the response later.

I watched him on the weekend. Guiseppe Rossi is, as we know, a talented young player. At this time he believes he wants to play for Italy. It's not something that we will give up on easily. He left New Jersey when he was 15 and was part of Parma's youth program. I know his family a little bit back when I was a college coach and I would try and recruit players from different high schools his father Fernando Rossi was the high school coach at Clifton. Clifton is also where Danny Szetela is from. This is a New Jersey boy but one that left at a young age, has had some success with Italian youth teams and obviously has had a great start to the season at Villarreal. We will keep trying.

Moderator: have you met with him or have you talked with him?

Bradley: We have talked to him.

I'd like to see Kenny Cooper back in that January US camp and hopefully see a little more starting time in the friendlies.

You Know LB you just set off the bigsoccer doomsday virus. There will be viral Rossi threads for another year. Salut!

Sorry! But when Bob Bradley started talking about Rossi, I figured you guys would want to hear.

But yeah, that's sort of like the ex-girlfriend you just got over giving you a phone call out of the blue: renewed hope for reconciliation!

No, it's more like stalking a girl that doesn't want anything to do with you..
