Things are looking up for the U.S. men's national team after it infamously failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup. A young generation of stars led by Christian Pulisic, Gio Reyna, Weston McKennie and Tyler Adams are leading the way. More young U.S. stars are playing at elite European clubs than ever before, including Pulisic at Chelsea, McKennie at Juventus and Sergiño Dest at Barcelona. The road to the 2022 World Cup will begin next fall after delays to the international calendar caused by the pandemic. Before then, the U.S. will look to qualify for the Olympics and win the Concacaf Nations League and Gold Cup to build momentum on the road to Qatar.
