Dallas Soccer News - Good move calling Brek Shea for Italy?

Good move calling up Brek Shea for Italy match?

So did Klinsman make the right move in calling up Brek Shea at the last minute for Wednesday's national team friendly in Italy?  I would say the answer is a big no.

Brek has been training with the U23 national team in Frisco all week in preparations for a Wednesday night showdown with the Mexico U23s at Pizza Hut Park.  That's a match that Brek Shea would have gotten a solid 90 minutes.

Instead he had to hop on a plane at the last minute arriving in Italy on Monday.  With basically a single days practice time with the full squad.  The only way this is a win is if he gets major minutes against Italy and that is very unlikely.  Realistically we would probably see Brek as a second half substitute in the game.

So he could get 90 minutes against Mexico without travelling half way around the world or get 20 minutes against Italy along with 24 hours on a plane.
