La Flecha Roja Olimpico

Dax is going to the Olympics!
It's bad news for Nathan Sturgis, as his injury woes continue, but Dax is the guy with the cool nickname anyway. Still, it leaves the Olympics team a bit thin on defense - Dax plays midfield, while Sturgis was an option for the backline. It's all riding on Parky and Orozco, I guess.

Good for Dax. I was a bit surprised he was left off to begin with. He played well in qualifying.
Maybe Nowak will go to 3 in the back in some situations now? It wouldn't hurt since I think our midfielders at the U-23 level are pretty good and ahead of the backs. Also against teams like Holland who like to build out of the midfield the idea of clogging it up isn't exactly a bad idea.
