    I know the USA will still have a very good squad but this just reads pretty funny:
    Alberth Elis (Boavista FC / HON), Alphonso Davies (Bayern Munich / CAN), Hirving Lozano (Napoli / MEX), Sebastian Lletget (LA Galaxy / USA), Keylor Navas (Paris Saint-Germain / CRC) and Leon Bailey (Bayer Leverkusen / JAM) are among the notable inclusions in the lists Sebastian Lletget a notable inclusion LOL

    Yeah, I assume Adekugbe is just a recognition of the club situation.  
    And I missed the omission of James in my first pass but that one really is baffling.  There must be something behind it because he deserves to be listed on merit, so it has to be some sort of personality clash or something.

    Disappointing not to see Manjrekar James. I suppose this signifies some sort of falling out, and unless he hits some undeniable form I doubt we see him again.
    Adekugbe another player from WCQ not included in the side, although I suspect he indicated he wouldn't be coming. 
    No CanPLer's even in the 60 if unfortunate. Although it would probably mean missing 60% of their season with the Canadian regulations on COVID, etc.

    No Adekube but I guess with being in season and a forthcoming transfer its not surprising. Will be good to see Gutierrez at LB and/or Miller/Cornelius at LCB. I have my doubts about Kennedy accepting this call.

    Yeah, that's just bizarre when you look at some of the other names. Even if he's far down the depth chart he played for the Danish champions and in the Greek first division.. played UCL ball and has WCQ and Gold Cup experience with us. How can he not be on a 60 man roster?

    Dominic94 got a reaction from Kadenge in Ayo Akinola   
    I think it’s obvious now that he’s filed the switch and waiting approval. The player has to accept being named in the squad, and let’s be real he did.

    Announced this morning he would be looked at by Amorim during preseason. So maybe a chance with the first team coming.

    Some (very) early thoughts: 
    - I don’t know if this is basically a conservative wish list or if we have spoken to these guys.  I suspect it is the former but if it is the latter I would be over the moon.  Even if it is a wish list there is still some good stuff to be gleaned.  
    - Akinola on our roster but not the US has to be a pretty damn solid indication.  Let’s hope this goes through.  

    - similar to Ayo, Singh appears on our list and not T&T’s   Decision made?   If so, let’s get this guy on the field.
    - The inclusion of some other duals is really interesting.  Jebbison and Flores are the two high profile guys.  Really curious if we see either.  
    - No Dias is too bad, but in light of the other inclusions I am not am worried about it.  
    - the young TFC contingent is good to see. Will be good for Nelson, Priso, and Okello (along with Ayo and Singh) to be in this context.  
    - focusing on the lesser know or uncommitted young guns but the inclusion of Davies and David is interesting.  Maybe it is just out of an abundance of spots, but you would think that if we were settled on taking a B team we wouldn’t name those two.    Maybe Herdman agrees with me that the GC is the chance to prep for the Ocho.
    - some other names that jumped out are Vilsaint and Elva.  Not sure what it signifies yet, but good to see the youth movement continue.

    The fact that Borjan is missing but Davies and David are included suggests there's an actual chance they are summoned.
    Ditto Arfield.

    Based on Herdman's interview on OneSoccer last night it sounds like we're taking an "A" squad. He didn't outright say it but lots of talk about getting games together .. mentioned that we didn't get many friendlies and we've been playing low tier teams. 
    I could still see us missing David and Davies though. In the roles they play and with their quality I'm not overly concerned with them missing this and it adversely affecting us come WCQ.

    Is this sarcasm???  You couldn't ask for a better country for a dual national to be tied to.  France has arguably the deepest player pool in the world.  This guy is no where near France, nor will he likely ever be.  Assuming he starts getting first team minutes, I would expect Canada to be all over him and I doubt he would have to consider holding out for long either.
