Not too encouraging, he played on the third team. the first & second unit it seems are the cream of the group, and third are fringe players. So there's no guarantee he'll make the team.
They Spoke of Nelson Rivas looking like the rock in center back, no mention of Shavar. I don't think he'll make that team....
Not to drift off the backline issues but in regards to Shavar at Montreal Impact, he will be playing for a former teammate in Jesse Marsch who knows his skillset. Also, Montreal will need to plan for national team and olympic duties for the following players during 2012:
Jamaica: Shavar Thomas and Donovan Ricketts
USA Olympic team: Zarek Valentin and Andrew Wenger
Colombia: Nelson Rivas
So Shavar should be fighting for a spot in the starting XI when he is available.
