I suspect Berhalter will play Reyna and Pulsiic on the wing. I don't ...

know why Berhalter insists Reyna is a wing when even Dortmund moved him to the middle. Rayna's best position is probably as a pure 10. Unfortunately, Berhalter's system doesn't use a 10.

Musah and McKennie are strong 8s. They're good box to box players with Musah more talented on the ball. McKennie is stronger defensively. I think they make a good pairing. Busio and DeLa Torre appear to be good backups for now. I also want to see Konrad back on the roster.

The wings are Pulisic, Weah, and Aaronson. I'm not the biggest Ariola fan but appreciate his high work rate. However, he can't be staring every match. In fact, he's a decent backup.

Adams is our only true 6 with Acosta backing him up. Acosta too is a decent back up. However, he can't be starting.

I'm sure there are others in the midfield who are capable candidates I'm forgetting.

Ariola and Acosta ... that's all the experience we need in the midfield. Otherwise, I'm rolling with talent.
