Remembering Brad Evans’ contributions in World Cup qualifying

The World Cup door isn’t completely closed on Brad Evans, as the Sounder remains on the USMNT’s standby list in case of injury. Still, the 29-year-old’s exclusion from the World Cup roster of 23 was a disappointing blow to the Sounders FC community.

Hard not to applaud this reaction, as well:

Evans had played an influential role in World Cup qualifying playing at right back. His highlight, of course, was scoring a dramatic stoppage-time winner in Jamaica.

Enjoy it one more time:

Posted below is a reminder of Evans’ participation in the final round of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying starting from his inclusion to the starting lineup over the summer. You might remember he also played in friendlies against Canada, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Scotland, adding a particularly impressive performance in a 4-3 win against Germany in the federation’s centennial game.

The 10 caps were Evans’ personal best for a year.

What do you think? Had Evans earned a place on the final 23-man roster?
