U.S. questions vs. Paraguay

United States

Julian Green's back in the U.S. fold and has a brighter future after loan

Former U.S. international Brian McBride backs Christian Pulisic's comments about a lack of focus being to blame for the USMNT missing the World Cup.
Ale Moreno says if Earnie Stewart becomes the USMNT general manager he'll be the key person in identifying the next head coach.

"There's no better moment than that."

Julian Green is talking about a goal. No, not that goal; not the one that he scored nearly four years ago for the U.S. against Belgium at the 2014 World Cup. Rather, he's speaking about the tally he recorded two weeks ago for club side Greuther Furth on the last day of the 2. Bundesliga season. The goal was enough for Furth to secure a 1-1 draw against FC Heidenheim, a result that allowed the Shamrocks to maintain their second division status for another...

Christian Pulisic becoming quiet leader for U.S. and Dortmund

The FC crew assess Christian Pulisic's Dortmund future after he sat down with ESPN's Jeff Carlisle to talk transfer rumours and the USMNT.
Christian Pulisic speaks from Dortmund, Germany, about his plans to play with the USA in the upcoming match against Bolivia in Pennsylvania.
Amid reported interest from the Premier League, Brian McBride and Mark Donaldson revisit Christian Pulisic's future and discuss whether he should remain with Dortmund.

SANTA MONICA, Calif. -- It didn't take long for Christian Pulisic to find his feet at both the club and international level. Finding his voice is proving more of a process.

There is no doubt that Pulisic is the face of the U.S. men's national team. By the end of the World Cup qualifying cycle, he was the player around whom the nationsl team's attack was based. In the nine international matches he played in 2017, Pulisic was either directly or indirectly involved in 13 of 17 goals scored.

If that...

Pulisic leads U.S. but McKennie, Miazga also part of promising core

The future backbone of the U.S. men's national team is taking shape.

U.S. interim manager Dave Sarachan once again named a youthful side ahead of an international friendly, in this case a match against Bolivia on May 28. But one can already detect some common threads in terms of the players getting called in.

It's true that Christian Pulisic is back in the mix for the first time since that brutal night in Trinidad on which the U.S. failed to qualify for the World Cup for the first time in...

Russell Canouse, Brooks Lennon left Europe for MLS' promise of playing time

ESPN FC's Taylor Twellman explains why the onus is on D.C. United and not Wayne Rooney to make his potential move to Major League Soccer a success.

At 15, Russell Canouse left for Germany to find his soccer future. The midfielder had already spent two years with the PA Classics near his childhood home of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and another two with the New York Red Bulls academy before signing with TSG 1899 Hoffenheim. He played for the storied club's youth sides between 2011 and 2013, then made 51 appearances for Hoffenheim II between 2013 and 2016. On March 12, 2016, Canouse came on as a sub in a match against VfL Wolfsburg, his first --...

Jorge Villafana trying hard to get over U.S. disappointment with Santos

TORREON, Mexico -- Jorge Villafana wriggles uncomfortably and looks into the distance when asked about that night in Couva last October, when the Stars and Stripes' 2018 World Cup dream died against Trinidad & Tobago. It clearly still haunts him.

On the surface, it seems the 28-year-old U.S. international has been able to compartmentalize the disappointment. It certainly hasn't affected his club career: He's earned a starting spot in defense and been part of Santos Laguna's resurgence in this Clausura....

Wil Trapp takes his chance in new-look U.S. midfield

Bobby Wood converted a penalty late in the first half to lift a young United States squad past Paraguay in North Carolina.
With just four substitutions used, ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno questions the lack of minutes for the USMNT's up-and-coming players against Paraguay.
The USMNT secured a 1-0 win over Paraguay, but Ale Moreno and Herculez Gomez think a chance was wasted to give younger players more minutes.
Timothy Weah talks through all the emotions he experienced as he earned his first cap with the United States.

CARY, N.C. -- For Wil Trapp, a spot on the U.S. men's national team has long seemed just beyond his reach. Central midfield has long been the deepest position in the player pool, making it difficult for the Columbus Crew SC captain to break through.

Further, on the rare occasions when he was called in, Trapp seemed an odd fit. Jurgen Klinsmann memorably tried him at outside midfield during one January camp, with subpar results.

But over the last three months, Trapp has won the trust of interim coach...
