Edgar Castillo: Super Slowmotion

If Bob Bradley is smart, he should let Edgar Castillo, the US Men’s National Team’s  newest defender, immediately challenge for the position at left back. The position has been the team’s weakest for a long time now and, although Jonathan Bornstein has certainly shown improvement over the past two games, that doesn’t forgive some awful performances over the past year. This is not to say that Bornstein should be dumped unceremoniously, but competition at a weak position can only be good for the team. Additionally Castillo will bring an offensive quality that Bornstein simply can’t match. Combined with Spector (and his wicked in-swingers) on the right, Castillo could help lead the US in terrorizing opponents along the flanks, and perhaps provide more flexibility for Landon Donovan moving forward.

Also, try to imagine Bornstein doing this (Castillo is the first player on the ball, in case, like most USMNT fans, you’ve never seen him before):
