(Ed. Note: It is a great honor to be called to the national selection, even in the preliminary stages. There are always different viewpoints on the choosing of any team, even more so for the National “A” Team. Granted, this is a work in progress, and not only will players be “eliminated as the selection process continues,” but we expect that some other names, including a few of our foreign-based players, will be added to the list.)
