That is the question for quite the list of players in the current USMNT pool. Who is and who is not a right back for this cycle is very subjective. You could easily ask six different people to get about six different names in various orders at the 1-2-3 spots for this position. Here is mine...
Let this list also be a reminder that everyone (insert Gary Oldman reference here) goes back to what I would consider their optimum positions, being that we have only just begun jockeying for World Cup 2018. Things could change, but I would prefer Yedlin to go back to focusing on right back play. He can be a real money guy there. I hope Tottenham agrees. Chandler still struggles for consistency, as does Lichaj to a lesser extent in a lower (but highly physical) league. Depending on how many candidates shape up on the left, these three have the potential ceiling to lock down this place on the clipboard.
