U23 update

The U23 team will be leaving for China at around midnight tonight. One person who won't be going with the team is Nathan Sturgis. He's suffered a calf injury.

Coach Peter Nowak still hasn't decided on a captain for the squad, although he mentioned something I'd forgotten - Sacha Kljestan captained the U23 squad the last time the age group got together for a short trip to Japan.

But Nowak seemed impressed at the overseas experience of some of the players now on the squad, pointing out how the pressure of the soccer-obsessed atmosphere over there forced greater consistency in their performances. So he might end up picking someone like Charlie Davies.
