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
No, if they didn't take Santi Gimenez, they wouldn't have taken Pepi
@Daniel Cimino you think santi gimenez is better than pepi ?
@89frisco I would say they're roughly on the same level. Probably would take Pepi over Gimenez but it could go either way imo.
Matt Turnerhas been a huge part of this whole process he deserves to start
Please start him Harry kane will have a field day with Turner in goal.. Im a arsenal fan and don't rate Turner
Greg is giving a master class on how to crush the confidence of talented young players.
Pepi is shocking. I thought he was going to be the starter
Bruh pepi ain’t doing all that. Y’all acting like it’s a big miss
@Luis you rather take Morris over Pepi??
@Luis D’Alba no but we already knew morris was gonna go.
Love the intensity from Alexei!
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.
Am I the only one who thinks Stu Holden could pass as Taylor twellmem son?
I get them mixed up lol
Crazy thing is in real life they are only 5 years apart
i thought it was taylor twellmen
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.
@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.
Yep, has no idea what his best team is.
@Golden.Lights.Twinkle Beerholder still hasn't realized he is the coach
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.
Premature observation let the game begin… top flight players let’s support the boys
You can't deny Lexi's passion and desire to the US do great in the World Cup! This should be fun. God bless the USA!!
Still say de la torre playing will be key , does so many things well , steady and unafraid to carry ball when needed. Time will tell. Wales will be bigger test than most think
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!
Is a great team, it would pass group stage and have plenty of talent to go pass that and do better on '26.
I agree with Lalas. Don’t let the players off the hook for being young. Let’s go 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
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?
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 🇺🇸
He's no better than Meola, Keller, Friedel or Howard were.
@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
@Thomas Hull Turner the starting goalkeeper? Have we been watching the same Arsenal
@Thomas Hull What? LOL
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... 🤔
Let the games begin
We won’t know if the roster is/was good or bad until the tournament is over
Trust me, it is terrible and they will be back after the 3 games!! 😂 😂 😂
It's not the squad we have to worry about, it's the manager.
We still wont know what a good coach could do with this roster
How does Stu Holden still look like he's in his 22?
Better take a closer look. He looks more like he's 42.
@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.
I’ve been following him since I saw his crazy beard vs Mexico in the Aztec Stadium.
@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.
@Danny Tallmage Americans aren’t used to being mid and Lalas always keeps it real with the criticisms lol
Can we just thank the heavens that Zardes and Arriola aren’t on the roster 🙌😂
Honestly I would take Arriola over Morris
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.
@Daniel Cimino That's a fair point!
My guess is that Morris and Sean Johnson were mandatory MLS picks.
Why would there be mandatory MLS?
@night stalker Only way to possibly justify his picks.
@Sandy Joseph Beram stop assuming
For me the only MLS player that’s deserved it was Sean Johnson
Plus Ream & Robinson have chemistry.
Hagi Wright is a super athlete tbh. I like the pick
Still could have left Roldan or Morris home and taken Pepi. Sargent can also wing and is a far better talent than Roldan.
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.
Layla’s is so passionate lol let’s go
Pepi will be a cautionary tale for Mexican dual international players.
Why? Would he have made it on the Mexican squad?
@ibrodinho What do you think?
@Favreian Vengeance he wouldn’t have made Mexico team lol
@Him Come on now, bro.
Where can I get the hoodie that Stu is wearing?!? I need it!!!
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.
Gregg’s job was never in jeopardy
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.
Stu just gets it. Wish he could just be like the team therapist.
Omg best US soccer dialogue I’ve ever heard
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.
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
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
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
No way over Sargent
He’s just not good enough. He shouldn’t have even sniffed this team.
Lmao he’s much better than Ferreira for sure
@fallenphoenix Consider how the USSF chose its coach..
He is 100% definitely not better on the ball than Pepi, you must not watch them often at all
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
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
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.
Pefok/Pepi over Wright/Morris all day every day.
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.
“Wales don’t have the speed to burn in behind us”. 😂😅😂
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.
@Humberto Tremaria dude he's way better than Morris and Ferreira are you serious?
Scored 10 goals in 44 games for Norwich. Hardly prolific!
@Golden.Lights.Twinkle he scored today who else in that front line is scoring goals?
I think it's fair to say that Berhalter is a bit confused when it came to selecting his squad.. No Pepi, no Ariola, no Zack.
Alexi looks like he is about to round up the former squad for hackey sack circle.
What's wrong with that?
There is a better chance that this USMNT doesn't score a single goal, than this USMNT makes it to the quarterfinals.
Pepi, should’ve stuck it out with Mexico as our 4th!
The real question- Does Stu Holden own a pair of socks?
I would be shocked if we make it out of the group
‘Roldan is the type of guy you want to come off the bench 10mins left up 1-0 to Wales’… - Sure Jan 🙄🙄
omitting pepi f'ed me up man, i feel like he picked up his form to be ready for the world cup and he didnt even get called up lol
9 MLS players on the roster and no Steffen. That's great.
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.
Pefok does speak English
@k k no he doesnt. Post a link to a clip of hik speaking english
That's how the group will go
The point is that this is one of the factors as to why soccer is more a privilege than how it goes in the rest of the world.
It's ok guys , any roster will do in three world cup games !!
Yay lets go USMNT! Win us 3 points and that will be considered a good run for us.
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?
I feel sad for pepi. He's good.
Fun fact: Shaq Moore is the owner of the quickest scored goal in competitive USMNT history (1' vs Canada, 2021 Gold Cup)
Dempsey 1’ goal vs Ghana 2014 World Cup
@Lalo’s Sports and Outdoors that was after 34 seconds, Shaq Moore's was after 20 seconds 🤯🤯
I’d rather have Dempsey’s goal
@Lalo’s Sports and Outdoors that's fair. Shaq's was all about the setup, from Acosta to Lletget to Shaq
@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..
This group is good enough to get out of the group. With GGG imposing his "system" on them, they will be lucky to score 1 goal.
American Southgate on the way!!
They do play
USMNT clean discipline in this Knockout Round Match at this year's FIFA World Cup in Qatar but The Yanks has despite of a 3-1 defeat at the hands of the No. 8-ranked Netherlands in Round of 16 at Qatar 2022
35:57 Mosse knew
The midfield is our best section aaronson, mckennie, adams, acosta. Only forward i trust is pulisic. Ferreira dont have the killer instinct a striker needs for me. Tim weah is talented but no end product
I would like to say that I’m a likable fellow and can pass a ball can I take Roldans place 😅
I'm canadian maybe I could fill the role 2 lol
Turner; Dest-Zimmerman-Long-Jedi; Musah-Adams-McKennie; Reyna-Sargent-Pulisic...LFG, USA!!!
Berhalter forgot he himself, took Aaron Long out at halftime in these past games, because he was complete trash! We're going to be humiliated because of his inability to play the best players our country has :(
Should this team beat Iran and Wales, yes. Will they???? I am not the best at following the USMNT, but can't think of any confidence inspiring performances in the last couple years. Of course, if they beat Wales 3-1 I will do an immediate about face and predict they will tie England.
Gregg has to be Psychotic for leaving out Pepi
Yeah I don't get that. Gregg went with Pepi throughout qualifying and Pepi is in form right now so what gives? Wright is in form too but he is almost completely untested with the team. Go figure?
Pepi is a good player. It hurts that he's not going to Qatar.
No ...Morris made him comfortable in that mini camp.
@max Maxie thats why we cant wait for him to nit have this job
haji right over pefolk is punishable
Hmm. Must have a reason t leave Pepi out. Hope Blelharter does not choke like he is done on crucial games. All the best USA..
The players better not ruin this opportunity
@SamplingMastersXLR8 its not the players fault that they are forced to play greggs "system"
@Star Wars Satan it’s the players that will determine how well the team does performance wise
@SamplingMastersXLR8 not. They are forced to play greggs system
@Star Wars Satan I said player performance as in how hard they are trying to win
How they defend
Not making stupid mistakes
Not giving the ball away
That’s not on the players not the coach
Tell me MLS politics are involved without telling MLS politics are involved....roster selection....
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.
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.
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
Why did I have to scramble to watch?stream world cup earlier this week when I was in a different time zone on vacation?
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?
Long and Zimmerman will likely start, which means we’re f….d!
Saw Zimmerman play against LAFC and Galaxy he’s god awful
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.
Crazy that Aaron long, Jordan morris, and Roldan are there…. Dudes aren’t national team quality. And two of them were out for close to a year with ACL injury…
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.
Surprised they didn't cap Gabriel Slonina for GK.
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
Haji Wright has 9 goals in 12 games in the Turkish league which is right up there after the top5 leagues with the Dutch Eredivisie
Haji gon get a hat trick and replay this
Stu lied that he would be ok with Sean Johnson at #2 OR he is a media shill, well...
Am I the only one who thinks we should just play reyna at the 9 he can't be worse than these other bums
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.
Ronald McDonald is good at promoting the fast food joint, does that count? 😂 😂 😂
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.
@Humberto Tremaria clip-share.net/video/AlDRQb6cvpI/video.html Here's your boy Sargent at :35
@Kevin Barrera ... My boy? 😂😂😂 Try a real footballer botfly!!
Link for that stu Holden hoodie
Ya'll need to put some respect on Shaq Moores name. Shaq moore is solid as heck.
Sargent over Pepi epitomizes Burkhalter's stupidity.
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.
2026 is gunna be nuckin futs
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.
JMo an empty shirt? Really? His header against El Salvador...
@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.
Josh Sargent was a great choice. He is going to make his place.
He's not a very prolific goal-scorer.
@Golden.Lights. Twinkle that’s an asinine response. It’s hard to be a prolific goal scorer in Premier or Championship league unless you’re Salah, Haaland etc. he’s been productive which is what you want at those high level leagues
Lalas should coach for 2026!
Agreed! I'm so fed up with berhalter. At least bring back Klinsmann
@The Aquarian Contrarian I wouldn’t mind a legendary South American coach either
No Tim Ream is not what US needs. If greg didn't ostracized brooks i would rather have him
The reason why others players are not going to the World Cup is because they not getting enough playing time at their clubs but why pulisic is getting a call he barely plays at Chelsea and his been under 3 different managers?
No Pefock but... Jordan Morris??? Well he did win the Herman Trophy 🤣😴
Leaving off Pepi is similar to leaving off Donovan. Not quite it, but it's definitely close.
Definitely not lol
@JABBERWOCKEE i was shocked. You weren't?
@Robert Morici “shocked” ? No.. more shocked that Pefok was left off but NEITHER are comparable to Donovan I mean 🤦♂️
USMT better get ready for bale for costing philly their cup
No John brooks ?
