Brad Guzan Gets US National Team Callup, Eric Lichaj Left Out Once Again

It's been a good day for Brad Guzan; shortly after putting in an excellent shift against Newcastle United, the 27-year-old keeper has been named in the 25-man roster for the US National Team's September 8th World Cup qualifier against Jamaica. Guzan is a bit of a fixture in the team as Tim Howard's backup, it's still nice to see him keep his place with numerous young American keepers making a push in recent months.

In less exciting news, Eric Lichaj has once again been left out of the team by Klinsmann, and his last cap remains his 90-minute performance in the USMNT's 4-2 Gold Cup final loss to Mexico in 2011. Picked ahead of Lichaj was Birmingham City defender Johnathan Spector, which is puzzling for many reasons. Jurgen Klinsmann does a lot of things that are puzzling, in fact, but this is an Aston Villa blog and I'm in a good mood from the Newcastle game so I'm just going to stop talking about it.

Congrats, Brad! Other international call-ups are likely in the coming days; we'll keep you posted.
