10 MLS players who should be in January USMNT camp

Who

(*10*)

I do know the USMNT’s proper again depth chart is crowded, however Julian Gressel has reportedly earned a call-up to the United States. The 29-year-old, who was born in Germany, is a US citizen now! And he’s been one of the vital productive chance-creators in all of MLS (and never simply amongst exterior defenders) over the past a number of seasons.

(*10*)

Looking particularly at fullbacks, although, Gressel completed in the ninetieth percentile or increased in non-penalty xG, xAG, shot-creating actions, and progressive passes per 90 minutes amongst fullbacks in MLS final 12 months. His proper foot is golden and his understanding of area is up there with the perfect in MLS.

(*10*)

I don’t know if Gressel will ever be an everyday starter for the USMNT, however given his expertise taking part in out broad and in central midfield again in his Atlanta United days, perhaps there’s room for him as a utility participant forward of 2026.
