Green can play attacking midfielder as well as De La Fuente.

Gioacchini is a winger who could put pressure on the backline. They all can. These players would have given Berhalter more flexibility with capable midfielders on the bench of Busio or De La Torre. Furthermore, Berhalter could have played Hoppe at striker (his natural position) with more capable wings in the team.

I get it ... they are all young minus Green. However, the starting line up against Panama screamed that we were playing for a 0-0 draw.

These players are all skilled getting playing time in the Bundesliga and Ligue 1. Who knows? Maybe they wouldn't have done well. However, they should have still been called into camp ... especially with injuries to Gio and Pulisic (who both play similar positions in Berhalter's system).

I don't think Shaq Moore is seeing much time in the Spanish Second Division. Maybe we needed Moore for fullback depth, but Scally is starting for Gladbach. I agree with you on Bello. He's not ready.
