Let’s say Charlie Davies and Clint Dempsey recover in time to take the field against England on July 12. How huge a lift would that be for the American team? Massive, right? If nothing else, the members of the squad genuinely like each other and root for one another. Getting two of their fallen soliders back would put the U.S. into the stratosphere. I’m talking flying around the pitch.
Watch your six, England.
