Heath's the one?
Steve Davis is grumbling about the U.S. left back conundrum, but I think Heath Pearce has stepped up to the role quite well. He's fast enough to limit attacks, he's scrappy on tackles, and he gets forward well. Plus, his crosses are some of the best I've seen from any U.S. player rotating into that position. Witness his assist in the last match to EJ. By the way, here's what Heath had to say after the Barbados match.
Soccer yields different perspectives, though. Who do our readers prefer in the left back slot, and why? Make the case.
