Is there a story behind his absence from Gold Cup? Unless he was
injured, I'd put that forward as evidence that his attitude hasn't
changed much. On the US team, there were several players who need a
club, but they all showed up.

I don't know.  I'd guess he and McKenna were excused because they had
just moved to a new club or were looking for one, and everyone knows
what they can do already.  McKenna is only 25 or 26, so he is around for
a while yet, but Radzinski can only give us another year or two at best.

last gold cup neither de Guzman nor Stalteri played as they were moving
to new clubs, so I just think we work these things out differently up
here. Not saying we are right, by any means.  I think the gold cup was
winnable for us this year if we had sent our best possible squad.
