TT - International Connections

So we're throwing you a little curve ball here for the start of the semifinal round. Gotta keep you on your toes, right?

Instead of a U.S. team trivia question, today's topic focuses on our opponents. The current 20-man roster for Guatemala has six players with current or previous experience in MLS. Who, where and when?

Here's a little hint to start you off: one guy currently plays club ball with a U.S. national team player outside of the United States.

Oh, and you didn't think we were going to GIVE you Guatemala's roster, did you?

I couldn't find Guatemala's roster, so I'm just guessing at which players are on the squad.

Gustavo Cabrera, Real Salt Lake 2004-05 (and, as cnelson pointed out, now a teammate of Feilhaber's in Denmark)
Mario Rodriguez, Columbus Crew 2005
Guillermo Ramirez, LA Galaxy 2005
Willie Sims, New England Revolution 2006-07
Carlos Ruiz, LA Galaxy & FC Dallas 2002-present
Marco Pappa, Chicago Fire 2008-
