Three players England must look out for on the USMNT

| 13.11.2018

Who could star for the US?

England host USA as two historic allies lock horns at Wembley Stadium on Thursday.

The match is now billed as a glorified England testimonial for record-goalscorer Wayne Rooney.

The forward is 9/2 to score first. But if you look beyond the glamour you might find a clutch of young, hungry US players looking to make an impact.

We take you through three players who could leave you wanting to see more…

DeAndre Yedlin

To be the most experienced player in the squad at 25-years-old might not be typical. But DeAndre Yedlin is comfortably the USMNT’s most-capped outfield man in the current roster.

The Newcastle United defender has 56 national team appearances to his name and could captain the side with Michael Bradley dropped.

After the Toon’s back to back wins the rampaging full-back will pull on the Stars and Stripes full of confidence.

Fast and athletic, he will be known to England’s Premier League contingent but could be hard to stop.

Weston McKennie

One of the most exciting prospects that has come through in the last year. He made his debut against Portugal in November 2017, but it’s been 2018 where he’s really come of age.

Still only 20-years-old he’s been tipped to be one of ‘the faces’ of this new-look Schalke side.

A versatile midfield player, you could expect to see McKennie play either as a number-six or number-eight against England.

Having already made 32-appearances in the Bundesliga across three seasons, he’s likely to be the man the US build around for the next ten years.

Christian Pulisic

Perhaps the stand-out name and the guy the US are pinning their hopes on.

The Borussia Dortmund forward is back in the squad following injury last month.

He’s one of the most in-demand young players in world football with the likes of Liverpool and Juventus reportedly after him.

Pulisic is a tricky winger, who has a knack of being in the right place at the right time.

The 20-year-old is 10/3 to score anytime and will need to be kept at arms length on Thursday night.
