Brad Evans Delivered a Perfect Tweet After Being Left Off the U.S. World Cup Roster

Thursday evening Jurgen Klinsmann surprised the American soccer community announcing the final 23-man roster for the United States at next month’s World Cup. Shockingly, the German coach left Landon Donovan — the U.S. all-time leader in World Cup goals and minutes off the flight to Brazil — setting off one of the fiercest and impassioned soccer debates in recent history.

Brad Evans — who scored an important goal vs. Jamaica in World Cup qualifying — was also omitted from the team with much, much, much, much, much, less fanfare. Evans, a right back with the national team, lamented Klinsmann’s decision with a funny tweet that took a swipe at Cristiano Ronaldo, whom he would have lined up against when the U.S. played Portugal on June 22.

Nice job Brad, not everyone can find self-deprecating humor after being dealt a bad break like that.

For whatever it’s worth, Evans contributed as many goals as Donovan did in the final round of CONCACAF qualifying — one.
