I am so excited about the upcoming World Cup!  It is a shame that my beloved Scotland are not there, but I will be avidly supporting the US, my second home, especially against England!

Here is a related article about the US roster I thought you would all like, extolling the virtues of ODP, being that 27 of the 30 named to the initial squad played ODP.

    I want to know who to contact about having a premier or select u-19 boys team to come here to Dongguan China and play the u-19 team here. I have been observing them for the past week and they are a very good team. The players are made up of boys from all over China and it is the next step to the u-20 Chinese national team and olympic squad. The Dongguan soccer director of operations has asked me to invite a team to come here and play. They have an excellent stadium that seats about 4 thousand people and the pitch is near perfect natural turf. Dongguan is located about 1 hour west of Hong Kong airport or 1 hour east of Guangzhou airport. I can arrange all transportation and lodging .Please write me at nitro624@yahoo.com or call me country code 86 city code 0769 13433651734

    Mike, after coming off another great weekend of ODP training in Salem with my daugher at the '97 level, I love reading about the ODP players on the World Cup Team. With the very minimal experience we have had to date with ODP, I can see how the program advances players to that level of World Cup. Thanks to you Mike, and Rochelle, and Chris Rogers for another great training experience.
