There are a few in the pool that could have been on the squad.

Fabian Johnson, Timothy Chandler, Sean Johnson, Bill Hamid, Gyasi Zardes (was called up for Panama but not T&T). Some have had injuries or other things, but I think a big part of it is that we have just continued to rely on some of these older guys instead of brining up and working with young talent.

Beasley, Wondolowski, Feilhaber, Guzan and Rimando keep getting brought into camp and called up which limits the opportunities for fresh faces who might fill in those spots.

A guy like Eric Lichaj (28) might be a good example. A regular and captain on Nottingham Forest for years, has seen very limited opportunities. Doubt he would be some savior, but why do will still bring in guys like Beasley instead of him? If he had been called up every time Beasley was over the last couple year, you might have another younger defender who could give some energy and might be a solid contributor.
