Briefing: Agent Marshall (aka “Rad Chad”) has emerged as a rising new member of the MNT, even though he has participated in some missions since 2005. His fantastic performances of late with the Crew, an Ohio outfit, has catapulted him back into the Mission 2010 debate. I think he will secure a place on the squad and may be a starter.
Special Skills: Agent Marshall has all the attributes of a top defensive player. He has imposing size (6’3″), good speed, and enormous tenacity. Most of all though, Marshall has a cool head and a strong leadership style. All of these traits have made him into an all-star in MLS, and all should also translate to him becoming a fixture for the MNT.
International Actions: Though he has been a member of the MNT since 2005, Agent Marshall has only been selected for four missions and scored a single goal. He was thought to have been left behind by the agency, but his recent resurrection has amped up interest in his abilities. As a result, his future with the squad looks bright.
Mission: Agent Marshall’s mission, should he decide to accept it, will be to help hold down the MNT’s back line. His presence in the middle could allow Agent Bocanegra to play a holding defensive midfielder role or even move to the outside himself. I think Agent Marshall is ready for the opportunity.
