No Longer a Spectator

Jonathan Spector is back in the MNT camp this time around, marking his first call-up of 2009. Spector, you may remember, was injured last year and is returning to form and full fitness after a lengthy layoff from a torn labrum in his hip. The last time he appeared for the U.S. came in the 3-0 victory against Poland at this same time last year, and he was a part of the squad that traveled to Europe last summer before pulling out due to injury. This weekend marked Spector's first Premier League start of the year and was also his first full 90 minutes for the club this season. We sat down with Jonathan and asked him about the long road back.

Welcome back Jon! I can't wait to see you 100% match fit again.

It'd be nice to see how you'd partner up with Gooch in the middle.

Boca, Spector, Gooch, Dolo would be the best defense don't you think Bob? ;)
