With its two picks in the 2010 MLS SuperDraft, Toronto FC selected US U-17 defender Zach Herold and Cameroonian Nane Joseph.
Port St. Lucie, FL, native Herold was chosen with the eighth pick in the draft, 24th overall. He played for the US in last year’s FIFA U-17 World Cup in Nigeria, helping the American side advance to the Round of 16 before they fell to Italy by a 2-1 scoreline.
Following his performance in the U-17 World Cup, Herold received an offer to play for FC Koln in Germany, but the young fullback ultimately decided to sign a Generation adidas contract with MLS late last month. As a member of Generation adidas, he will not count against the salary cap.

World Cup Qualification can be a pretext for a bit of heavy-handed hyperbole. Emerging unscathed from the ether of the qualifying process can leave some to the entertain the idea of already placing one hand on the World Cup, as seems to be England’s wont every four years. For Chile, on the other hand, some are placing their hands and hearts on something a bit more unworldly, the prospect of Sainthood for Marcelo Bielsa.
