Goal.com offers up its suggestions of Christmas presents for the United States Men's National Team.By Noah Davis
It's been a long, tough, but ultimately successful year for the United States Men's National Team and Goal.com thinks the players deserve some Christmas presents for their sublime effort. Enjoy boys, and bring on 2009. (Yes, we're a day late but the Goal.com Santa Claus was a little busy yesterday officiating a soccer game between the raindeer. You have no idea how out of control they can get.)
