USMNT and Major Indoor Soccer League Wrap-up... they came together on the field last night too

The USMNT blog just announced their 18-man roster for tonight's game versus Chile.

1-Sean Johnson
18-Nick Rimando

We hope our own Sean Johnson gets the start.  SB Nation's Ryan Rosenblatt has a good preview to get you caught up.

Merging the worlds of USMNT and Major Indoor Soccer League, the Omaha Civic Auditorium hosted an unique matchup that saw a collection of players from the 1994 USMNT World Cup team (and others) take on this year's Omaha Vipers.  'Team 1994' team featured Marcelo Balboa, Paul Caligiuri, Fernando Clavijo, Tom Dooley, Diego Gutierrez, Alexi Lalas, Roy Lassiter, Preki, and Tony Sanneh.  Tony Meola and Tab Ramos were planning to take part as well but snow related travel problems prevented them from attending.  ' Team 1994' piled on a lead of 14-8 only to have the Vipers come surging back led by who else but the at times invincible Carlos 'Chile' Farias.  Great recap at the link via the Omaha World-Herald and the MISL Facebook page has an almost 15 minute long highlight video of the action.  As I type, our MISL Chicago Riot are currently down 9-4 against the Milwaukee Wave late in the 3rd quarter.

Steve Davis of Daily Soccer Fix and his fellow SI writers will have instant analysis for tonight's USMNT vs. Chile game.  It all starts at 9:00 PM CST and you can tune in on Telefutra or  Come on Bob Bradley, let's see a young Chicago Fire goaltender starting in goal for the USMNT...
