Bruce Arena names his 18 for Costa Rica

Here are the 18 for the Oct. 8th match against Costa Rica

Goalkeepers (2) – Kevin Hartman (Los Angeles Galaxy), Tim Howard (Manchester United)

Defenders (8) – Chris Albright (Los Angeles Galaxy), Wade Barrett (San Jose Earthquakes), Carlos Bocanegra (Fulham FC),  Dan Califf (San Jose Earthquakes), Eddie Lewis (Leeds United), Oguchi Onyewu (Standard de Liege), Eddie Pope (Real Salt Lake), Jonathan Spector (Charlton Athletic)

Midfielders (5) – DaMarcus Beasley (PSV Eindhoven), Ricardo Clark (San Jose Earthquakes), Bobby Convey (Reading FC), Kyle Martino (Columbus Crew), Pablo Mastroeni (Colorado Rapids)

Forwards (3) – Brian Ching (San Jose Earthquakes), Santino Quaranta, (D.C. United), Taylor Twellman (New England Revolution)

The first thing I noticed was no Landon Donovan. I know he has some injury questions right now, but this will be the first WCQ he has missed. It's also interesting that Kevin Hartman got the second spot on the goalkeeper set.

Taylor Twellman will get another chance to show if he can turn his MLS glory into something international.

This is a good blend of MLS and European based players. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out.
