The USMNT is in a sticky spot in the World Cup Qualifiers.  They are last in their pool and need to step it up in a big way if they hope to make it into the World Cup. Perhaps the Earthquakes’ goalie, David Bingham, can help them do that.

There have been some questions revolving around what goalkeeper will help the USA in their quest to shutout their opponents in the World Cup Qualifiers.  After all, although Tim Howard wowed during the last World Cup, he’s had his fair share of trials and tribulations since then. He has only been back in the game for about a week, after taking 4 months off to recover from an injury.  With Howard’s future uncertain, that leaves an opening for David Bingham, who nabbed one of the three goalkeeper spots in the USMNT 24-man roster.
Bingham is quite the dynamic goalie.  He has started every single game for the Quakes since the 2015 season began and has allowed an average of only 1.14 goals per game.

Stoked to be on the USMNT roster for the World Cup Qualifier Bingham says that, ”the last few days have been a whirlwind but I’m looking forward to helping the team in the upcoming qualifiers,” he said in a press release.  “We all know how important these matches are and to be able to represent your country in front of friends and family will be an exciting opportunity.”

The USMNT take on Honduras on March 24th at 7:30 p.m. They will then play Panama City in Panama on March 28th at 7 p.m.
