USA World Cup FTW

I was talking to some work colleagues about if the U.S. had all its best athletes playing soccer just as other countries do and it got me thinking. What if our NFL players played soccer? What would our best 11 be? I thought about it for a bit, and came up with the squad of 18 below:

Hines Ward
Antonio Cromartie | Troy Polamalu | Ed Reed | Champ Bailey
Reggie Bush | DeMarcus Ware | Adrian Peterson | Steve Smith
Randy Moss | Larry Fitzgerald

TJ Houshmanzadeh (GK)
LaDainian Tomlinson (CM)
Andre Johnson (LM/RM)
Antonio Gates (CB)
Mike Vick (LM/RM/FWD)
Maurice Jones-Drew (CM)
Devin Hester (LM/RM)
Calvin Johnson (FWD)
