At last, we reach the left wing. This is the end point, be sure to de-board the train.
In a rather short time, Pulisic has become an obvious starter for this team. Lletget showed in the recent friendlies that he can push up the flank. Green is the emergency bench killer, though I'd probably be more inclined to turn to Arriola or Zusi first at this time.
And with that, we have my current "A" group for the vital March World Cup qualifiers against Honduras and Panama.
As promised, I also have an alternate idea for if we really want to control the proceedings in either of those upcoming contests (the idea of which I know often makes folks in our bubble uneasy).
Finally, I also have one version of an "everybody fully fit and in form" XI to chew one. It's not out of the question for March 24th, but also not exactly likely.
Of course, playing Nagbe in that #10 role means the wingers would be the main "half-court" playmakers, which I could be fine with. It also means Nagbe would run the break, which you have to admit is a bit mouth-watering.
