USA Squad FIFA World Cup 2022

They boast what could potentially be the best generation in their history. Several of the youngsters are among Europe’s elite: Pulisic, Dest, Aaronson, Gio Reyna… They have a good goalkeeper (Steffen) and a very athletic midfield with Musah, Tyler Adams and McKennie. They have won two titles recently… but you get the feeling that Gregg Berhalter hasn’t been able to get the best out of them as a team. They lack the ability to play as a unit.

The U.S. will be joining the party at World Cup 2022, barely making it through regional qualifying on goal difference past Costa Rica. This will be the 11th time that the U.S. men’s national team (USMNT) has featured on the global stage, with the best result coming via a semifinal run at the inaugural tournament in 1930.

Without question, Gregg Berhalter’s side has enough young talent to have a chance at getting out of the group, and should excite supporters on the way, as they plot a potential deep World Cup run.

Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic will be expected to play the main role, while Borussia Dortmund’s Gio Reyna will provide a creative spark in the attack. The U.S. will be a real threat going forward for teams to worry about, given their 21 goals scored in qualification.
