USMNT in World Cup 2022 – Roster projection 4.0 On the Outside Looking In
There is a roster projection 4.0 for USMNT in World Cup 2022, especially on the outside looking in.
If they moved or changed when they played over the summer, they may be in contention for the World Cup. This team consists of both Major League Soccer (MLS) regulars and foreign talents.
Sean Johnson (Goalkeeper)
Johnson is less likely to move to Qatar because Steffen and Horvath are going on loan. However, if one of the three veteran goalkeepers is injured before November, Johnson will be called upon because he is the finest goalkeeper when he has the ball in his hands and keeps his cool under pressure.
Gabriel Slonina (Goalkeeper)
Slonina transferred from the Chicago Fire to Chelsea because he performed better there. Slonina, who has a lot of expertise, should back up Steffen at the World Cup in 2026.
Haji Wright (Forward)
Wright joined Antalyaspor this summer. In his final season, he tallied 14 goals and two assists. He has scored once this season, but his success has not translated to the national team.
Gianluca Busio (Midfielder)
Busio signed a long-term contract shortly after Venezia was demoted. With regular playing time, he should develop into a playmaking midfielder. Despite the fact that Busio will not be heading to Qatar, he can still progress by playing in Serie B.
Erik Palmer-Brown (Defender)
Palmer-Brown is hurt by Carter-Vickers’ return after a strong season with Troyes. Whoever gets off to a stronger start in the new year has a better chance of making the World Cup team this year. Carter-Vickers is now in the lead.
Brandon Vazquez (Forward)
Despite having a fantastic season with FC Cincinnati, Vazquez has yet to hear from Mexico. Both Ferreira and Vazquez have 15 goals, but they did so in different ways.
Djordje Mihailovic (Midfielder)
Mihailovic was injured just before the World Cup and was unable to compete. Berhalter stated that, despite Mihailovic’s outstanding season with CF Montreal, he still has a position on the squad, but that De La Torre and himself may start the following game.
Malik Tillman (Midfielder)
Tillman is becoming more popular among his peers. If he continues to score from the wings, the national team will find it difficult to keep him off the field. Tillman can execute ideas and perform miracles on the bench.
Jordan Pefok (Forward)
If Pefok continues to score goals for Union Berlin in the Bundesliga, the team will no longer be written off. Pefok will be under a lot of pressure to replicate Young Boys’ European success.
John Tolkin (Defender)
Despite his team’s struggles, Tolkin has emerged as one of the top left backs in Major League Soccer. Tolkin has the most interceptions in the league and makes 60% of his tackles.
Matthew Hoppe (Forward)
Hoppe has yet to play for Middlesbrough, although he is expected to see more action there than he did with RCD Mallorca.
Josh Sargent (Forward)
Norwich City started Sargent in the midfield against Huddersfield because to Teemu Pukki’s injury. He demonstrated why Dean Smith should do it more frequently. Despite scoring and assisting on the Canaries’ second goal, Sargent still requires more playing time. He might feel better about himself if he makes it to the Championship. Qatar can be considered in this scenario.
