Timewasting: MLS Team Of The Week # 38 – World War II XI

Timewasting: MLS Team Of The Week # 38 – World War II XI

It’s VE Day, with today marking the 75th anniversary of the ending of the second World War and the Allied victory in Europe.

A momentous occasion, so we’re going to mark it with our latest MLS Team of the Week – the World War II XI.

For those that don’t know what this section is, we think of a subject for a football team to be based around, then usually fill it with our starting XI of current (or very recent) MLS players with some appropriate name changes, or even better, just as is! Our big difference from the original is that we actually put them in a team with a proper formation and not just a long list of random names.

Your scouting job is to come up with the subs bench, from any player from around the world, and leave your player suggestions in the comments section.

Can you add a few more?


Team Name : New York Red Bullets

GK: Invasion Johnson (NYCFC)

D : Sommey Sommepson (San Jose Earthquakes)
D : Bomber Gonzalez (Toronto)
D : Third Reich Opara (Minnesota United)
D : Allies Adnan (Vancouver Whitecaps)

M : Micheal Kamikazira (Chicago Fire)
M : David Normandy (Inter Miami)
M : Iwo Jima McLaughlin (Cincinnati)

F : Luftwaffe Picault (Dallas)
F : Rommel Quioto (Montreal Impact)
F : Theo Bair-raid (Vancouver Whitecaps)

Manager : Artillery Henry (Montreal Impact)

Let’s hope this team doesn’t bunker too much. But if they need a goal, they can always bring ‘The Tank’ Lucas Cavallini off the bench for the Battle of the Bulging of the net.
