  • Adams, McKennie, Sargent Highlight U.S. Roster

  • "It was a combination of things in terms of availability, timing, and having an opportunity to look at players that have been on our radar and in some cases haven't had a chance to get a look. Obviously the European-based players are available with this international break, and the idea was to bring in those players to balance that out with a few Major League Soccer players that are available. We are steering clear of those that are still involved with the playoffs. Beyond that, we've also tried to bring in a few veteran players who can lend leadership—guys that have been involved with the National Team and have played in what I would call higher profile games to give us a little leadership in this camp and for this particular game."

  • "Here's a thing to remember: It's 600 (or so) days until the next official USMNT games. We've already hit the low point, and now begins the process of climbing off the bottom of the pit, step by step. It's not going to happen all at once, and quality players who aren't on this roster will surely get at least a look for future rosters, and it'll be under a coach other than Dave Sarachan, the current acting head coach. Let's take a look at what the US have for Portugal next week..."

  • Laura Harvey might be the next U.S. women's national team coach
