    Crazy part is had Pepi chosen Mexico he would have likely have gone to the World Cup with them.

      Don't know. If Santi Giménez is left out I don't see him having a better chance.

      Pepi will be our 9 in u20s. Then a leader in 2026

    • Daniel Cimino
      Daniel Cimino 6 months ago +5

      No, if they didn't take Santi Gimenez, they wouldn't have taken Pepi

    • 89frisco
      89frisco 6 months ago

      @Daniel Cimino you think santi gimenez is better than pepi ?

    • Daniel Cimino
      Daniel Cimino 6 months ago

      @89frisco I would say they're roughly on the same level. Probably would take Pepi over Gimenez but it could go either way imo.

    Gregg still making Gregg decisions but also making ones that reveal he might be willing to make changes in formation and playing style. Such as Roling out a 4231 with Zim and Ream starting between Jedi and dest and musah alon side Adams in a double pivot. Those 4 centrally would be able to confidently pass out of the back and the dual 6 allows Adams much much more feeedom and highlights his strengths.

  • Manaconda Hammersteel
    Manaconda Hammersteel 6 months ago +31

    The fact that Gregg changed the roster around so much shows how much he still hasn't figured out. I'm happy Ream and Haji made it. These are players that should've been getting called up. Taking Morris, Moore, and Roldan are inexcusable.

    • Manaconda Hammersteel
      Manaconda Hammersteel 6 months ago +2

      ​​@Favreian Vengeance well that's crazy since this is Ream's first World Cup. You're thinking of Matt Beasler. Ream wasn't on the '14 squad dude. Ream is the Captain of an EPL squad and brings leadership that we need.

    Mon O 6 months ago +2

    Miss the old USMNT with Dempsey/Donovan and co. Honestly most of our guys didn’t have the European credentials of many of our current players but they had way more passion and fire. We’d go into games against the best of the best feeling like we actually had a chance. This current US Mens National Team doesn’t give us any confidence whatsoever.

    14:10 This segment is the most Tac and Pete like thing I’ve ever heard Lalas say

    We ain't got the best team but it's the team we got! Let's ride with them! Team USA ALL DAY!

  • Joel
    Joel 6 months ago

    Is a great team, it would pass group stage and have plenty of talent to go pass that and do better on '26.

  • Pedro Jr
    Pedro Jr 6 months ago +2

    I agree with Lalas. Don’t let the players off the hook for being young. Let’s go 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

    • A snark
      A snark 6 months ago

      Young teams don't show well in World Cups. The pace and intensity are too high. Semi-final and beyond teams average between 27 and 28 years of age, with very low deviation from that average age. It's too fast and physical with no recovery time for U-20s to do more than sub duty. Are you a new fan watching your first cycle and WC tourney?

    • Jacket
      Jacket 6 months ago

      NO EXCUSES!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Thomas Hull
    Thomas Hull 6 months ago +7

    Matt Turner is the most important and valuable player on this squad. if they do anything great it will be because he keeps the ball out the net! Go USA 🇺🇸

    • Golden.Lights.Twinkle
      Golden.Lights.Twinkle 6 months ago

      He's no better than Meola, Keller, Friedel or Howard were.

      Thomas Hull 6 months ago

      @Golden.Lights.Twinkle he's the starting goalie for arsenal the top club in the premier league, the best club league in the world... you don't think his quality has anything to do with their success?! you're bonkers

    • Oldshirt
      Oldshirt 6 months ago

      Musah will be WAY more important to this WC.. more than BOTH Turner and Pulisic. There must be SOME reason he's invisible to US fans, but I'm having a hard time putting my finger on why... 🤔

  • Rob Jay28

    Let the games begin
    We won’t know if the roster is/was good or bad until the tournament is over

    • Golden.Lights.Twinkle

      It's not the squad we have to worry about, it's the manager.

    • Star Wars Satan
      Star Wars Satan 6 months ago

      We still wont know what a good coach could do with this roster

  • Dan Kane

      @czarfore sorry I disagree. I'm 42. He looks better than most people that age

    Alexi lalas is the only person to overcome being raised by two poets and be patriotic.

    • Peter Parker
      Peter Parker 6 months ago

      I’ve been following him since I saw his crazy beard vs Mexico in the Aztec Stadium.

    • Danny Tallmage
      Danny Tallmage 6 months ago +4

      @Peter Parker way before my time and honestly I’m glad he ditched the beard but he’s a big reason why Americans stopped seeing soccer as a sport for girls and he paved the way for Americans in major European leagues. Don’t understand why so many American fans don’t like the guy.

    • Butter Johnson
      Butter Johnson 6 months ago

      @Danny Tallmage Americans aren’t used to being mid and Lalas always keeps it real with the criticisms lol

  • Dave Otis

      Honestly I would take Arriola over Morris

    • Bryan Salguero
      Bryan Salguero 6 months ago

      Its good but Ferreira, Morris, Zimmerman, Long, Roldan and Acosta all suck too. No European interest for any of these players. Maybe Ferreira when he gets better, but as of now they don't belong in the World Cup squad.

    • Nick Matthews Music Studio
      Nick Matthews Music Studio 6 months ago

      @Daniel Cimino That's a fair point!

  • Alex H
    Alex H 6 months ago +29

    My guess is that Morris and Sean Johnson were mandatory MLS picks.

  • MrRondonmon
    MrRondonmon 6 months ago +1

    Plus Ream & Robinson have chemistry.

  • TVL
    TVL 6 months ago +4

    Hagi Wright is a super athlete tbh. I like the pick

    • Sebastian Black
      Sebastian Black 6 months ago

      Still could have left Roldan or Morris home and taken Pepi. Sargent can also wing and is a far better talent than Roldan.

  • Carter Bentley
    Carter Bentley 6 months ago +4

    Fascinating! There is more nuance in the evaluation of soccer players than players in any other sport. How you put together a squad, what strategy you use, and how that plays out on the field--and all the tactical adjustments that are made in real-time during a match. Is there any other sport that has as many moving parts in play at the same time? I think not.

  • Michael Clayton

    Pepi will be a cautionary tale for Mexican dual international players.

    • ibrodinho

      Why? Would he have made it on the Mexican squad?

  • EliCryptoTrader
    EliCryptoTrader 6 months ago +17

    Long didn't even play one minutes of WCQ, and Pepi saved Greg's job and possibly prevented the US from being in a really bad position.

  • The Aquarian Contrarian

    I'm glad yedlin is in. Now the better question is will he start? Too many defenders on the squad. I would have take one or two spots away and add to the forwards or on forward and one mid.

  • whaddup5

    Stu just gets it. Wish he could just be like the team therapist.

    No pepi no arriola?? Ugh! I'm glad weah and Sargent are both in. I was worried it was gonna be one or the other.

  • a_true_hyena
    a_true_hyena 6 months ago

    I did not realize how much I like Stu Holden until today. I listen to him, but I’d like to dub him the John Madden of Soccer! I don’t want to listen to a game unless he’s calling it. Bravo

    • Mack Deen
      Mack Deen 6 months ago

      I love his analysis and he’s a great guy, but i cannot stand his play by play and color announcing. Americans are really the worst at it, so it’s not just him. usually listen to Spanish telecast because they actually call the play by play action and don’t over analyze and over explain every detail. he should be an analyst. Not in the booth

  • McLovin
    McLovin 6 months ago +4

    I’m one of the few who wanted haji on the squad, he’s better on the ball than pepi and pefok and I think he’s a more well round player than them too. I would honestly start him over Sargent and Ferreira

    • Rick
      Rick 6 months ago +1

      No way over Sargent

    • Jeff Hobart

  • Elias.Esxobar
    Elias.Esxobar 6 months ago

    Been saying it for a minuet but I think this team would be if it more from a 343 Jedi and dest at wingback. I feel like it would fit our team better tactically

    • BoxOfOranges84
      BoxOfOranges84 6 months ago

      There's a reason a lot of teams play 3 at the back. Lots of tactical flexibility. And Dest is such an awful RB, a back 4 is not gonna work

  • Ryder Pisenti
    Ryder Pisenti 6 months ago +1

    I like Haji as a player, but both him and Pepi are in good form. but I say go with the younger prospect with more potential in Pepi.

    • Oldshirt

      Pefok/Pepi over Wright/Morris all day every day.

  • ABS world

    I so love the fact that these pundits are underestimating Wales and Iran.
    Mind you Iran made it to the world cup unbeaten. Wales have some on the best young players in the Premier League and the Championship.
    Yall need to take them serious. I woulf be surprised if the US make it out the group.

    Bringing Sargent is probably the best decision on this roster. I've seen him play for Norwich, he has everything - pace, strength, work rate, and he's clinical.

  • Mikasaa
    Mikasaa 6 months ago +3

    Curious to see Wright but he was probably put over Pefok due to his relationship with the core guys like pulisic, mckennie and Adams. Pefok has a languages barrier with the group and probably why he did not make the roster.

    Stu says he wants tim ream to start the first game. here is the mindset stu lacks. even if that happens and ream does really good, in the next match vs England. do you start ream again? or do u bring in a younger Zimmerman or not? are we running 5 back or 4 back? maybe and I don't believe so 3 back., but let's say 4. Zimmerman or ream?

    @17:05 Lalas just said that our selections for outside back play flat, and aren't forward and back wing-style outside defenders. Guess he's never seen Dest, Robinson and Yedlin ply soccer/football.
    Alex?...Alex? That's ALL they are is raiding backs. That's the foundation of the 4-3-3.
    And Ferreira either is a natural false 9, or has played well as a false 9? Wow..

      MLS politics are involved .. had 2 say it lol.. I'm really glad up here in canada we didn't have this problem with our top league CPL (CANADIAN PREMIER LEAGUE) .. our best player in cpl (in my opinion) didn't even get a sniff at the national team. Which is a good thing . The others on the team are better

      9 out of 26 on the roster are MLS guys and most of them won't see the field. It's not like we have a overabundance of fit and in form European based players Greg could just neatly slide into those spots.

      @Matt Wade yes we actually do. I guarantee at t least 6 MLS lifers will see the field and that is a crime

    Adding Ream now begs the question of why not sooner? I think Ream deserves to go but throwing him on at the last second really doesn't do anything for Ream or the team. GB should have brought him on in Sept.

    • Kevin Barrera

      I wouldn't be surprised if Ream starts. He starts week in week out with Antonee Robinson at Fulham. You look at Berhalter's comments last international break saying the squad didn't pick up everything the coaching staff was asking them to do. I think he's finally learning that World Cup cohesion is having player familiarity first and foremost. And Ream and Robinson playing together is key.

  • Elijah McLaughlin-Prosser

    Wales don’t have the pace to get in behind USA??? Has this guy ever heard of Dan James, somebody on just pure speed I’d probably put top 5 in the entire world, not to mention Brennan Johnson and Gareth Bale who isn’t as quick as he was sure, but still will absolutely burn Ream and Zimmerman in a foot race even today

    From last season, there's no reason for tacking Morris over Arriola. He's a great player, probably better, but not now, not for th worl cup. One good game put him in?

      William G 6 months ago +1

      The last 4 years I've thought the young talent we have would be good enough to get out of the group. I agree that with Zimm and Long, we'll loose. The problem is Berhalter forcing us to play in a glaringly weak defensive strategy that Long and Zimm make much worse. We are not a scoring juggernaut, so giving up a goal per game on defensive mistakes will keep us third or last.

    Morris over Pefok or Pepi is an absolute embarrassment and picks like that are what makes the USMNT the laughingstock of international soccer. I'm never gonna hear the end of it from my Scottish buddies.

    Pepi deserved a shot Wright didn’t earn his spot, Berhaltar already had his starters picked the rest are just along for the ride meaning Wrights pick was purely a favoritism decision. Unless major injury bug hits them again there will be a lot of gassed players because I know he won’t be playing Wright lol

    Sargent is not good enough for this level. He's proven it multiple times. He's good in the championship but at international or world class level he's not good enough. It's crazy that Pepi wasn't taken.

      I totally agree. People say Sargent is putting in goals. But you watch those games and they're all garbage goals. I'd rather play Pulisic as a false 9. Sucks that Berhalter never tried that during qualifying or friendlies.

      Not Morris huh? Sargeant is the one you think shouldn't be there? The one striker that is performing in a good league. Not taking away from Pepi, but Josh should be there.

      @Manaconda Hammersteel I don't care about whatever poacher goals he's gotten for club. I've watched Sargent sh** his shorts more than enough times for international.

    I can’t wait for Gregg to get canned. His decision to bring Wright and Morris over Pepsi and Pefok is unacceptable. Morris is an empty shirt on the pitch and Wright just isn’t good enough yet. Unreal.

      @Sean Carlson I’ll gladly eat crow on that header, but anyone else would have probably been able to put that one away too. He just isn’t that good anymore. Before his injuries he was definitely better, but he mostly disappears when he’s on the pitch now. He just isn’t good enough.

    P R A Y . . . . . . . A B S O L U T E L Y P R A Y . . . . . . . that Berhalter doesn't start Aaron Long and Walker Zimmerman together as center backs. But he probably will because it's Berhalter. The correct pairing with who we have here is Ream and Zimmerman, and that's got it's issues as well, but is way better. Putting Aaron Long in is the same as installing a gaping barn door on the back of your house, that leads right into your living room, with no lock on it.
