ExtraTime Radio: Cobi Jones talks USMNT World Cup opener vs. Ghana, Mexico friendly

Calling All Collectors

Cobi Jones is a living legend, and his face is immortalized on three separate Panini World Cup stickers. Simon is jealous and Andrew is just plain curious. Find out why Panini World Cup albums are a big deal as Jones joins the guys to discuss the criticism facing Omar Gonzalez's after Mexico, Julian Green's red, white and blue welcome and the reasons why Michael Bradley, Clint Dempsey and Landon Donovan should be on the field together come June 16 in Natal.

Speaking of Green, Hollins University professor Jon Bohland is on to discuss his research on dual internationals on the US national team. It's an issue Bohland doesn't expect to die down anytime soon.

Also in this episode, listeners give their thoughts on the Michael Bradley boo birds and the guys ponder whether omens are bad for the USMNT in Brazil and what kind of owner David Beckham will be in MLS.
