    Interesting article from American Soccer Now on the potential USA roster.

    http://americansoccernow.com/articl...a-look-at-how-the-u-s-u-20-team-is-shaping-up

    USA will submit a 50-man provisional roster, which must be cut to 21 for the World Cup, and the 21-man roster must include 3 goalkeepers. The article projects both rosters and guesses that James Sands will be a borderline call up, while Juan Pablo Torres will probably not go.

    Pretty TW goal aside, that was a woeful showing.

    From now on scoring 9 goals in a game will be known as the Håland.

    Hat tricks will be known as the 1/3 Håland.

    At what point does Berhalter just announce that Sebastian Soto and Sargent are the de facto strike partners for the MNT so that they can grow together in increasingly familiar roles???

    Tough, hard fought win by the boys. Withstood a lot of pressure, but stuck it out and were rewarded for their effort. Weah looked good in his few chances on the ball, France tried to limit him as much as possible. Keita looked shaky at CB numerous times vs. Diaby. Goalie looked eh too coming out.

    What’s crazy is that this team is rolling and doesn’t even have the best 2 players on the roster.

    Though, I will also say, I'm not sure how many other "best" players these other teams are missing as I don't know their rosters well enough.

    For example, France could have had Kylian Mbappe playing today.

    Since Pulisic missed the WC, gotta wonder if he’s pissed he’s not on this squad??? The others rightly so for missing out on a tourney, but it’s cruel for Pulisic after carrying the MNT on his back and then being let down.
