Future Stars of the USA National Team

USA

Douglas C. Pizac-USA TODAY Sports

The United States have been impressive in their opening two matches at the Gold Cup with a 6-1 victory over Belize followed by a 4-1 thumping against Cuba.

Each and every player has had a part in the victories and overall performances, but some have stuck out above the others.

Scoring five goals in the opening two group matches, Chris Wondolowski has made a huge statement to coach Jurgen Klinsmann proving that he should be selected for the remaining World Cup qualifiers, and perhaps a spot on the official WC roster for next year’s tournament in Brazil. If Klinsmann isn’t impressed just yet, he still has the remainder of this tournament to further prove his case.

Stuart Holden, who had a knee injury that kept him off the field for roughly two years, is now back and fully healthy. His vision, passing ability, skill and overall familiarity with the game still seems intact.  He is a likely candidate to participate in the remainder of the WC qualifiers.

A man who scored to tie the game in a friendly against Russia, the not so well known midfielder, Mix Diskerud, has had a pretty decent tournament thus far. He didn’t score, but his European style of play has been beneficial to the US’s system. He makes the slick pass, takes the dirty foul and hols the ball long enough for a teammate to find great positioning in open space. He will be an irreplaceable member of the US in due time.

This team is developing players inside and abroad the nation and one day, this team will be a member of the elite countries of soccer.
