    So, now we have a squad of 36 U18's, enough for two squads of 18 each side, yet the question begs again to note that oif the total, only an amazingly and embarrasingly low number six players are Latino players and even more emabarrassing is that an equal number hail from California, while at first glance, the bulk of the players are from the midwest/east of the Mississippi/Missouri rivers. This leads me to conclude that the identifcation or selection process obviously concentrates it effort in that geographical areas. This also is the same during the collegiate season when the "All American Selections" or SA's top players are selected from these regions I've mentioned, which one could also go so far as to say that something is wrong with this picture, the far-far west states, regionsln, etc., always seem to get the probervial raw end of the stick and the pro-midwest/east coast bias is deeply ingrained. When will the powers that be ever learn?

    I forgot to ask: Who are the coaches? Cabrera or Rongen?

    Ric -- you failed to note the selection of three players from ONE club, Scott Gallagher (St. Louis). St Louis is known to be the home of beautiful, creative, attacking soccer --LOL Provided your criteria is England in the 1960's and 70's. LOL LOL
