I've got some confirmation that El Salvador will be losing four key players for the 2011 WCP Cup. I'm not 100% sure of the reasons each player is out, but I'll provide what I'm relatively sure about.
1. Jordian "Chico" Farahani is out. I think it's some kind of tryout or something. Not sure with which team or even if its during the whole tourny. Just that he's out.
2. Patrick "Bubba" Baba is out. Injured his knee or something similar. Hasn't played in a while and won't be good to go for the tournament. Scored the two goals against Norway last year. Good player.
3. Dion Morgan is out. I'm not sure of the reason for this. Actually, I'm only about 75% sure he is out. I'll keep asking around.
4. The keeper is out. Don't remember his name or even who he is exactly for sure. Don't even remember playing him in 2010. Only know that he is out and they're looking for a new keeper.
So for everyone who thinks ES is going to walk through Group A with Laos and into the playoffs, maybe think again. Everyone thought that in 2010 and it never happened, and the team won't be nearly as good this time out. Could make things very, very interesting.
