I really want to see Estevez make this squad. I really like that kid's quality on the ball.
Cyrus Rollocks has to be considered as well. Dude has crazy pace. Sometimes you need a guy who can get in behind and stretch the field.
Right. He's there captain too if I recall correctly. I think they're in the American's group. I hope they pull an upset. Seems like a team the US would sleep on.
On paper, they are right there with Jamaica, T&T and El Salvador. I would love to see them do well. CONCACAF could always use more competitive teams.
Ya Leandro Bacuna then theres Cuco Martina from Feyenoord who is the best player in the 40 for me. Throw in the guys playing for some very respectable clubs throughtout Europe and you have a player pool better than countries like Panama T&T and Jamaica on paper
How does Elijah Adekugbe stack up against the other midfielders in his age group ? Kid is an absolute boss in the midfield in the CPL. Probably one of the best midfielders in the league for me at this point.
I know it's extremely unlikely, but if Borjan and Crepeau get injured, one of those guys likely makes the final 23, like it or not.
Once again, if your plan is to ensure Cavalry, for example, are not left short-handed, you can't call Carducci for the sake of symbology, because if injury strikes that's one less player you can call upon. Can't very well say "oh don't worry, I won't take him from you, I just want to name him for optics", then turn around and call him in because injuries.
As for those USL guys vs. youth like Busti/Pantemis, that's another matter, but the latter have been in NT camp recently, so perhaps that's why they made the cut.
