Continuation of our new series on the players to watch from the 2022 World Cup. We now look at the United States with nuggets ready to hatch in the eyes of the world. Thanks to our colleagues from 90min USwe have selected four profiles on which it will be necessary to count at the Qatari World Cup.
With Chelsea, Christian Pulisic is often transparent and rarely holds. The American international takes on another dimension with the USA tunic. The 24-year-old winger scores almost every two games for the United States and has big creative responsibilities.
Pulisic is expected as the messiah as a captain but also a blaster on his left wing. Without a big performance on his part, it will be complicated for the United States to go far in this 2022 World Cup. This World Cup could finally take him over the long-awaited course.
Yunus Musah is starting to ramp up with Valencia. The American international has provided two assists in La Liga in just five games. The Andalusian midfielder is only 19 years old and can mark the selection of the United States with his mark.
Musah is expected to start with a big determination to create content in the midfield. With a lot of freedom between the lines, the Valencian maestro has the confidence of his coach.
Jesus Ferreira has a card to play during this World Cup. The American international striker plays in MLS on the side of FC Dallas with a big return. The 21-year-old striker has already scored more than 15 league goals and delivered several assists.
Ferreira is a voluntary, athletic and collective player. By living up to the summit that awaits him, the American artificer could become his country’s new hero.
Weston McKennie will have a lot of responsibilities, to create discrepancies in the corridors, nerves of war for the United States. The Juventus Turin midfielder has always taken his outings with his selection seriously. He is indeed the player with the most international background with Pulisic.
His experience will have to be felt both in defense and in attack thanks to his physical power. McKennie has participated in 34 caps for nine goals since his debut in 2017. Clearly a USA manager.
