The best iterations of the USMNT, those who have accomplished the most, have had some combination of leaders who propel the team to do things they did not previously do. These are the guys who make things happen, who make the pressure plays, who show commitment. They score the important goals, make the important tackles, find the killer balls, etc. It takes a person with a winning mindset and some serious internal motivation to step up and say "I'm going to be that guy" consistently. We have seen Keller, Friedel, Jermaine Jones, Dooley, Reyna, McBride, Bocanegra, Wynalda, Lalas, Pope, Dempsey, Cobi Jones, Donovan, Beasley, Hejduk, Sanneh, Bradely, Howard, Onyewu, Cherundolo, etc. do that over the years. Even guys like Demerit, Eddie Lewis, Mastroeni, Berrhalter, and Wolff stepped up. I believe that the US failed to qualify for the last world cup because of the leadership void. The old guys didn't have the ability to dictate what happened on the field anymore and the young guys were too timid to make things happen. So, who is the new band of leadership who will take responsibility for the teams success? Will they succeed? I think that Tyler Adams and Weston McKennie are those guys. It's time for them to step up and take responsibility for the teams success....to leave everything out there. Pulisic is among them too, but he hasn't shown that leadership tendency. I think that Adams/McKennie/Pulisic is the new core of leadership. Those guys need to take the reigns sooner rather than later. Who do you believe will lead the team into 2022?
