    Squad released for November friendlies.

    Goalkeepers (3): Brad Guzan (Atlanta United FC; 59/0), Ethan Horvath (Club Brugge/BEL; 2/0), Zack Steffen (Columbus Crew; 6/0)

    Defenders
    (10): John Brooks (Wolfsburg/GER; 35/3), Reggie Cannon (FC Dallas; 1/0), Cameron Carter-Vickers (Swansea City/WAL; 6/0), Aaron Long (New York Red Bulls; 1/0), Matt Miazga (Nantes/FRA; 10/1), Shaq Moore (Reus Deportiu/ESP; 3/0), Antonee Robinson (Wigan Athletic/ENG; 6/0), Jorge Villafaña (Portland Timbers; 19/0), DeAndre Yedlin (Newcastle United/ENG; 56/0), Walker Zimmerman (LAFC; 3/1)

    Midfielders (13): Kellyn Acosta (Colorado Rapids; 21/2), Tyler Adams (New York Red Bulls; 7/1), Luca de la Torre (Fulham/ENG; 1/0), Marky Delgado (Toronto FC/CAN; 5/0), Romain Gall (Malmö/SWE; 0/0), Julian Green (Greuther Fürth/GER; 14/4), Sebastian Lletget (LA Galaxy; 3/1), Weston McKennie (Schalke/GER; 6/1), Darlington Nagbe (Atlanta United FC; 25/1), Christian Pulisic (Borussia Dortmund/GER; 21/9), Kenny Saief (Anderlecht/BEL; 3/0), Wil Trapp (Columbus Crew SC; 9/0), Tim Weah (Paris Saint-Germain/FRA; 7/1)

    Forwards (2): Josh Sargent (Werder Bremen/GER; 5/2), Bobby Wood (Hannover 96/GER; 43/13)


    Hopefully, this is the last of Sarachan. Hopefully, Trapp and Steffen will be busy with MLS playoffs. I was hoping to see McKenzie from Philly as I've liked what I have seen from him in MLS. Nagbe sucks. Hopefully, this is the last of Sarachan.

    Gall has worked his way up in Sweden and this is a great time to give him a look. I cheer Romain!

    Totally. He has earned it with his play. Good for him. He didn’t get the run here but that’s ok because he found the right spot for him. He is having a great season.

    Good on him. I'll admit I had him pegged as a bust after his time here. Glad he found his way somewhere.

    Jokes on you guys, he meant Pulisic.

    I mean, why else would we not have signed him yet?

    I thought the norm was that November/December friendlies usually excluded players whose MLS Clubs were in the playoffs.

    Perhaps the roster gets trimmed after Sunday’s Results?

    I had heard that was why the roster was 28. They'll leave the still playing in MLS guys home.

    Trapp gets the start and is the captain.

    Send-off game for Wayne Rooney.
    Wonder if he’ll cry to the refs like a whiny little b!tch like he did in the playoff game.

    I’m glad to see Weah get the start as a winger. Good to see Pulisic back.
    Kyle Crew’s fave starting up top.

    He's apparently not starting, so I'd guess he gets a 5 min cameo at the end of the match.

    Immediately counter by subbing in Steffen.

    Much better second half but we seemed uninterested. Maybe we'll have a coach by January.

    England looked good for parts of the game. Good to see my boy Callum scoring on his debut but he is a one in three kind of striker which to be honest is not good enough at this level.

    It is apparent that you need to get in the permanent head coach as even these friendlies are more meaningless than usual.

    You didn’t miss much.
    Timothy Weah invisible in the first half.
    Bobby Wood off target.
    Players playing uninspired.

    I thought Pulisic the US number ten was easily the best player on the pitch all evening ..

    The Crew should probably look into signing him.

    He can back up Higuain and play in our Open Cup games...that's not a bad idea.
