The nightmare of the United States' missed opportunity to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup has been put to rest, and USMNT supporters can now look forward to the big game.
The official regulating authority IFAB confirmed that rosters would be expanded to 26 players from the initial expectation of 23 players,
allowing clubs to import three more players than in the past. Who will therefore be included among the 26 players invited to soccer's most coveted tournament, and who will be excluded?
We make an attempt to forecast which players will be on the final squad by mid-November. Manager Gregg Berhalter and his USMNT coaching team will spend the upcoming months
preparing the final list of talent. He organized a mini-camp for several domestic players who had been ousted from club play in late October to keep them in shape.
Of course, how this turns out will be greatly influenced by injuries. With just over a month until the start of the World Cup, the USMNT players' health is improving as October progresses
