Charlie Davies thinks he can be ready for the World Cup
Charlie Davies is on the mend...and seemingly thinks he'll be back for the World Cup in South Africa. Davies was interviewed by ESPN's Jeremy Schaap a few days ago and indicated that he hoped to be healthy in time for the trip to South Africa.

While that would be stellar and amazing and all that jazz - don't get your hopes up. Even if Charlie gets healthy by then, there is no reason to believe he'll be in any kind of game shape. He would likely be around eight months out of official action, having played last in October for the United States.
