Projecting the USMNT roster for the March friendlies: Pulisic, Reyna, Dest and more


steffen is injured....hamid could be our starting keeper until steffen is ready to go..obviously steffen is our #1 for this cycle

Zack Steffen is currently sidelined by persistent knee tendonitis, and until we have a better sense of a timetable on his return, it’s time to consider what the position will look like in March without him (that said, if he’s healthy and playing a month from now, he’s the clear-cut starter).

Defenders...looks like cannon will be on the olympic qualifying team. Ventura is doing well in mexico its time to call up him and chandler

This group is much more a “Who deserves to get called in, based on performance” group than a “who Berhalter would prefer” group. Chandler, Alvarado and Robinson are all deserving of calls, but it’s probably ambitious to think he’ll call in all three.
Why might it happen? Cannon’s expected deployment to Olympic qualifying coupled with Miazga’s long-term ankle injury has created some openings and Chandler and Alvarado are very worthy of being called in.


DeAndre Yedlin, Timmy Chandler, John Brooks, Aaron Long, Ventura Alvarado, Walker Zimmerman, Sergino Dest, Antonee Robinson

Midfielders: PSV wont release Ledzema for olympic qualifiers.. what that means- berhalhater might very well call him up for the Mens NT?!


This is a pretty straightforward group, with Duane Holmes a player who is playing too well to ignore at the moment. He was passed over in the fall, in what was a bit of a surprise, but give how well he is currently playing for Derby County, Berhalter would be wise to give him another look.
Something to watch for is if any top Under-23 midfielders have their Under-23 call-ups rejected by their clubs, which could then lead to them being part of the USMNT group. Richie Ledezma is one such candidate.


Christian Pulisic, Weston McKennie, Tyler Adams, Sebastian Lletget, Duane Holmes, Alfredo Morales, Cristian Roldan


forwards: jozy and morris are a must. Gio will now be with us. Ferreria could still beat out boyd and weah will most lkely replace arriola?

Jozy Altidore, Josh Sargent, Jordan Morris, Paul Arriola, Gyasi Zardes, Gio Reyna, Tyler Boyd

Gio Reyna is coming off scoring his first professional goal, and has started to earn regular substitute’s appearances for Borussia Dortmund. He is an enticing winger prospect that Berhalter should be in a hurry to bring into camp.

Tim Weah has yet to return to action for Lille, having missed nearly six months of game time, but he deserves a mention here because there’s a chance he could return to action in a week. If he starts playing soon, and can earn minutes, Berhalter will have to consider taking a look, especially since it’s highly unlikely Weah would be released for Olympic qualifying.

I think we have the talent to contend in 2022... if our best talents continue to progress...the potential is there to start kicking some arses. Berhalter needs to build chemistry with this group..hes got the talent.:):):):whistle:

this is most likely our US mens NT roster for this cycle. Cannon is our starting RB unless chandler does well in da march frendlies. Morris has been our best player last yr but with the rise of gio reyna...he may not be our starting winger anymore? weah could be our starting #9 if jozy gets hurt or sargent isnt producing. Llanez needs to get promoted at wolfsburg b4 he can join this roster .

ledzema , holmes and robinson are prolly our newest additions. Llanez is looking in ..who may be left out ...sargent:eek:

Holmes(derby county)
Llanez(wolfsburg)
Gio Reyna(dortmund)
Robinson(wigan)
jordan(rennes)?
ledezam(PSV)
weah(lille)
chandler(frankfurt)

cannon, tim ream, jozy, pulisic, long, morris, mckennie, dest, brooks, adams will most def be there

steffen is hurt and has an on going knee problem so the starting keeper pos is up for grabs:eek:

weah and arriola are out. Steffen has this chronic knee problem..he may also be out. We dont have any good keepers. Horvath isnt getting any mins at all.

pulisic and adams should be healthy n play v holland

I would call up saucedo. He is an interesting player. He is a starter for the best team in mexico. We will see holmes if he is healthy.

i would go like this...Bring chandler back

saucedo(Llanez).............Morris(or jozy)..............Gio

..............................Pulisic(holmes)

.....................mckennie.......................adams

..................Chandler.....Brooks...long.......Dest

.........................................?????

holmes, weah, steffen and arriola are out. adams and pulisic should be back from their injuries next weekend

gio and dest are prolly usa golden children so they will get call ups :D I think ledzema and gloster could get called up in march? ledzema was called up last time but I think he was injured..

if u see ledzema, Llanez and gloster in the roster for march then they r on the verge of getting promoted.

paxton is healthy now so he will most likely get called up. He can be a good DM/mid

Hamid is our keeper, i think ...until steffen is healthy again


im interesting to see saucedo(if he gets called up)...he can dribble and shoot bombs.He prolly has more talent than arriola .

morris is underrated . dude was our best player last yr.....put him around some talent like gio n pulisic...i think the trio can do some srs damage to opponents.



saucedo(Llanez).............Morris(or jozy)..............Gio

..............................Pulisic(ledzema)

...........mckennie............................adamspaxton)

chandler(robinson)....Brooks...long.......Dest(yedlin)

........................................hamid

Looks like ventura(mexican league) will be called in and maybe suacedo too? He is a starter for the best team in mexico and hes a winger..


Reyna will most def be called in(argentina are trying to get him) and he should become a starter in qualifiers...dude is contributing to a very good dortmund team...im sure he can make the bench for the US team lol





Herculez Gomez: Giovanni Reyna should be a US men's national team starter

“Gregg Berhalter doesn’t have the luxury of turning players like this away. Times have changed. Yes, it is easier to get a US men’s national team call-up, but nobody who’s ever played in one of the best teams in the world like Borussia Dortmund, playing in Champions League, has ever been turned away. Today will not be the exception.”

Reyna looks very good. Zizou-lite, with his father and mother former US national team players, it would be shocking if he doesnt play for you

Hmm, interesting...

The England Football Association is monitoring the progress of Borussia Dortmund wonderkid Gio Reyna, reports in England say.
Gio Reyna joined Borussia Dortmund this past summer, and has quickly become part of the first team. He made his senior debut for the Black and Yellows in January, and has come off the bench in each of Dortmund’s last eight games.
Reyna scored his first goal for the club earlier this month, a stunning strike from the edge of the box in the DFB Pokal. The 17 year old also assisted Erling Haaland’s winner in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 tie against Paris St. Germain.

if mexico loses efrain to the US(he was born in cali)...its gonna hurt mexico. If he continues to do well...he can be a BIG time player for mexico. A lot of youth players want to join the US cuz of their potential...dest jumped ship and i can also see efrain doing the samething if the US still wants him

Llanez should make his debut for wolfsburg this season...Ledzema and gloster could be making their debut for PSV soon....they keep training with the first team.

Konrad(barca and booth(bayern) could actually make it. Booth is one of bayerns best youth players. We will see...but a good amount of youth players of the US are making it.

David was a big loss for the US but to be honest, Im happy he is with canada...Im abt improving this region

I dunno why amaericans are happy that hirving isnt doing well at napoli...i hope he gets it together n does well. It will give the region even more respect!

brooks is underrated. Hes so gifted and is a massive talent when he wants to play!


dunno why argentina and enlgand want reyna? he sonly 17 and may still burn out and he is also 100% american!

gio could be our biggest talent so give him his debut. Pulisic is a good talent(he needs to improve a bit) but its kinda crazy that we have more talented players than him.

Ledzema(psv)could be another talent who makes a his mark soon. Im hearing that Llanez(wolfsburg) could be making his debut soon too. booth could be a big talent for us if he gets promoted at bayern. Watch out for him

im also hearing cardoso will be called in. He plays for internacional, brazil. Well he got promoted, hes half brazilian/american.

Reyna is the name on a lot of people's lips, but Berhalter also identified 20-year-old midfielder Jonhny Lucas and Ajax defender Sergino Dest, 19, as burgeoning talents on the international scene worth watching.

lucas is that brazilian kid who plays for interncacional...hes gonna get called him


we have players with dutch, argentine, brazilian, german, mexican, croatian descents....we are gonna be good, folks!

pulisic
holmes
adams
robinson
steffen
weah

are injured n may very be out for the march friendlies.. too bad we cant see out best players playing together!

gio and cardoso are the newest additions. we will see how they do. Morris is blossoming into a decent player....dude is improving his game. He could be a BIG plus if he continues to develop...that speed is a big plus! I still believe morris, cannon n jozy are the only MLSers who should be in the starting 11.


Morris.............Jozy...........Gio

.....Mckennie............?????

...................cardozo

dest.....brooks......long.......cannon

.....................????
