Place: Midfielder

Membership: Borussia Dortmund

Probably Function: Well being issues preserve him from being an automated starter…however he needs to be an automated starter.

Greatest Case: The coaching wheels come off, and Reyna is now not protected by Berhalter as he has been and begins all three video games. And he begins all three video games because the third midfielder forward of McKennie, leaving the US to get extra of Aaronson, Pulisic, and Weah on the sector on the identical time. His larger passing and dribbling ability when in comparison with McKennie makes the US extra dynamic and unpredictable and opens up extra possibilities than they usually would get. One mazy run like this one leads to a objective, units Twitter alight, turns into the discuss of the event for a few days, forces a nine-figure transfer away from Dortmund to avoid wasting Barcelona, who’re pressured to tug each lever they’ve left, and possibly bankrupts the membership. Finally ends up at Newcastle as they make their assault on the summit because of their blood cash.

Worst Case: His well being solely permits him to begin one group recreation and to be a supersub in the remaining. Deployed out broad, and will get remoted from the midfield. Breaks down once more. Or tries too exhausting, tries an excessive amount of, and loses possession lots making an attempt to make issues occur, in what seems to be like a reasonably stable Pulisic-on-the-national-team impression.
