Going by Klinsmann's criteria Agudelo gets my fifth and final spot.
If we go strictly by Klinsmann's player evaluation criteria, the fifth player to move from the January training camp to the Hex rosters is Juan Agudelo.
In his short time on the field against Canada he added a spark even it wasn't the most effective at starting a conflagration. In the past, he has shown an ability to pop up in key moments, he likes to take on defenders and has a high work rate. Check, check and check on Klinsmann's list.
You can't underestimate the importance of these criteria for Klinsmann. Why do you think we keep seeing Kyle Beckerman at camps and his name on rosters? He must be an absolute animal in training even if his abilities just don't rise in the cauldron of national team competition. Coach keeps bringing him back because he knows Beckerman will push everyone around him.
Hopefully Klinsmann realizes by now that even if Beckerman is a great in training and good in MLS he will never elevate the national side.
Time for new blood and I'm going with Agudelo but wouldn't be surprised with Bedoya, Buddle or Wondolowski (another big motor who finds good spots).
