Whether Stuart Holden ends up landing a spot on the U.S. World Cup team or not could very well depend on the decision he makes at the end of this month.

"It's consumed my life the last couple weeks," says Holden of the choice to either remain in Houston by re-signing with MLS or to take his blossoming career to Europe.

"At this moment I genuinely don't know what's best for me."
