Ale Bedoya, Tim Ream embracing role as U.S. team veteran leaders

DeAndre Yedlin hopes to be a role model for the younger players in the U.S. squad and become more of a leader moving forward.

LISBON -- Tuesday's game between the U.S. men's national team and European champions Portugal will be an opportunity for some younger members of the American player pool to get their first taste of international competition.

Players such as Schalke midfielder Weston McKennie, New York Red Bulls midfielder Tyler Adams and Sheffield United defender Cameron Carter-Vickers are among the performers in line to get their first caps. But throughout the past week there have been a few veteran heads by their...

Veteran Alejandro Bedoya makes mark on youthful USA Gold Cup squad

Janusz Michallik reviews the United States' group stage performance in the Gold Cup and notes the key performers.

CLEVELAND -- As Alejandro Bedoya slowly walked toward the team bus, it was evident that his day's work had come at a physical cost. "I got whacked on that first assist, so my ankle is feeling it," he said.

But there was a payoff, too. Bedoya, operating as the U.S. team's box-to-box midfielder, set up goals for Joe Corona and Kelyn Rowe, plays that proved critical in the Americans' 3-0 win over Nicaragua on Saturday night. The result enabled the U.S. to finish the first round of the Gold Cup atop...

Bedoya stands out as U.S. gets 3-0 win vs. Nicaragua to top Gold Cup Group B

Janusz Michallik reviews the United States' group stage performance in the Gold Cup and notes the key performers.

It took a little longer than expected, but the United States did what it had to do to win Gold Cup Group B with a 3-0 victory over Nicaragua on Saturday evening at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland.

Positives

Out of the three group-stage matches, this was the best performance from the U.S., which really isn't saying that much. Yet there were some positives, namely Alejandro Bedoya and Kelyn Rowe in midfield. Matt Miazga and Matt Besler also worked well as the two center backs and could be the...

U.S. Hot List: Kellyn Acosta on the rise, Alejandro Bedoya on the outs?

As much as our U.S. Hot List exists primarily to track how American players' performances with their clubs impact their standing with the national team, the recent international break revealed even more about where members of the squad stand in the estimation of coach Bruce Arena.

The choices Arena made both with his roster and with his lineup for last month's World Cup qualifiers against Honduras and Panama provided a window into the current pecking order. That information that will be invaluable...

Nagbe impresses, but US struggle to goalless draw in Arena's return

Bruce Arena's return as coach of the U.S. men's national team came in the form of a friendly against Serbia at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego. With the stakes just a bit higher than for a usual January camp friendly, the Americans ended the day with a slightly dispiriting goalless draw.

Positives

A wave of enthusiasm swept in with Bruce Arena, as the former USMNT boss returned to the job after Jurgen Klinsmann's dismissal, and there was at least some evidence of it on the field in San Diego. The...

Finally back in the fold, Kljestan is seizing his opportunity with the U.S.

MIAMI SHORES, Fla. -- Sacha Kljestan's last trip to Cuba made a lasting impression.

It was just over eight years ago that the U.S. traveled to the island nation for a World Cup qualifier in the semifinal round. Kljestan recalled that the U.S. prevailed 1-0 on a Clint Dempsey goal. But what the New York Red Bulls midfielder saw around the game was burned into his memory as well.

"Things are different down in Cuba; you see all the cars from the 1950s, and stuff like that," he said prior to Monday's...
