1. Matt Turner

The USA number one in net, Matt currently is in a battle for the top goalie spot at Nottingham Forest, a team which finished 17th last year (one spot above relagation zone).

2. Chris Richards

Our CB for the future, Chris had his best professional year of his career. He was finally given some consecutive starts after injury and made the most of them. Holding down the back line for Crystal Palace and helping them finish 10th.

3. Tim Ream

The age-less wonder, Tim continues to man the defense for Fulham. Although he has been plagued with injury this past year, Tim continues to be the staple in the USA back four.

4. Antonee "Jedi" Robinson

Our LB, our glue at the back. Jedi plays side-by-side with Tim at both club and country. At the ripe age of 26, Jedi figures to be a staple with the American team for years to come.

5. Tyler Adams

Tyler is the animal on the field that America has been needing, he is the first to go into any battle for his teammates. Adams has spent most of this past year injured, but figures to play a big part in the COPA AMERICA. He plays for Bournemouth and hopes to help them improve from their 12th place finish.

Although the list is only five deep at the moment, we have seen many Americans in the Premier League the past few seasons. Pulisic (Chelsea), Gio Reyna (Nottingham Forest), Austin Trusty (Sheffield United), Brenden Aaronson (Leeds), Weston McKennie (Leeds), Balogun (Arsenal), Josh Sargent (Norwich), Zach Steffen (Man City), DeAndre Yedlin (Tottenham/Newcastle) just to name a few.
