Theoretically, Major League Soccer expansion team Toronto FC could field an entire starting 11 of former U.S. internationals next season based on the players MLS clubs have made available for tomorrow's draft. It would certainly be a team of aging internationals, but the fact that so many former national team members are available highlights the wealth of talent at Mo Johnston's disposal as he picks his team tomorrow. MLS clubs were only allowed to protect 11 players from their 28-man rosters from being drafted by Toronto FC, although Toronto is only allowed one player per team. Aside from a slew of former internationals, including Tony Meola, Zach Thornton, Tony Sanneh, Clint Mathis, John O'Brien, Cobi Jones, Chris Henderson and Edson Buddle, other internationals, MLS originals, up-and-coming prospects, and even a few Canadians will be on offer.
