I can't see it being anything but a good thing for Landon and the US team. Exposure, top experience for their (arguably) best player and captain. I can understand if the fear is of injury, though. He would be playing against many of the players of US team's top rival in the group stages of the world cup. Really interesting stuff, but as far as we are all concerned, I'm sure, it would be a hell of an entertaining thing to see him go to Everton even if he is ensured to be injured. I'm from the US but club before country IMO.
