Probably won't deserve to be in the U-20 forum for long. Every touch video enclosed. Very poised and besides the nice touch and dribbles, I'm very impressed with how he always seems to "right foot" his teammates into space.

Not spectacular, but acknowledged among Fulham fans as one of the best players on the pitch so he should be in line for more starts.

If this kid plays his cards right, we could be seeing him as early as the 2015 gold cup. He's in the prime position to make some huge moves in next few months.

I like Hyndman but I would prefer he be given the chance to focus on club. I think that for now we should leave him be let him focus on his club then at a later date call him up if he can continue his good performances which I am confident he will. We can still call up a bunch of young players for this friendly just not hyndman.

Agree with ya there ChillGuy. He has 4 years to be integrated into this team. No need to rush him.

With the players currently in the USMNT player pool at Center Mid. there is no need to rush Hyndman into the Sr. Team. Our current CM's are good enough to get us through the 2015 Gold Cup (Bradley, Jones, Beckerman, Cameron, Williams, Edu, Torres).
Let Emerson work with his club to solidify his position with Fuhlam and shore up his game a bit more. Let him grow with the U-20 National Team at the youth WC, than earn a spot on the U-23 Olympic squad for 2016.
IF he succeeds in making an impact in the youth squads then start bringing him into the Sr. National Team after the Olympics. He'd still be 20/21 and it would give him 2 years of constant progression up the food chain, before being expected to contribute at the Sr. Level.
Hyndman, Stanko, Canouse, Trapp, Kitchen and Senora (?) should all get a chance....but there is no need to rush them. Let them all work their way into the Sr. side over the next 12-18 months.

I honestly think he'll be called in

A USMNT all "euro" roster will be a little thin now with the recent US players transferring to MLS, current injuries, and still no word about the parker brothers or zelalam switching to the US.

With only one friendly now in Sept., and the lack of CM's actually playing in Europe, there is no way it will only be a European based team.

Right now the only CM's getting first team minutes in Europe are: Morales, Hyndman, and Diskerud.

Not saying Hyndman won't be called in, but I will be a little surprised if he does get called in.

Remember Williams is out injured until October.

Right now I would say some of these CM's stand a good chance of being called in:

Bradley, Edu, Okugo, Diskerud, Jones, Feilhaber, Morales, Kitchen, Powers, Hyndman, Trapp, Lletget, and Stanko.

Sucks Ozzie Alonso will never get to play for the US. Probably the most in form American CM right now.

I hope us soccer adds another friendly. Would not mind playing a team from central America or a team like Paraguay, Ecuador, Peru ect... It does not have to be a big name team.

I dont get why we dont play against more south Americans. I know the Colombia thing fell through and there rumors about Ecuador but seems like we either struggle to get them or they dont want to play with us or something else. Heck Mexico gets matches set up against Chile and Bolivia.
Only can help bring more interest from South AMerican players to MLS imo seeing how US team has grown.

He's got a lot of time still to develop, no need to rush anything.

If all goes accordingly, he will probably have a fast rise through the ranks similar to Yedlin's this year. I really can't wait to see how this season goes for him.

I hate this thought process. Whats the harm in bringing him into camp IF (and a big IF) he's determined to either be one of our best 25 guys, or best 5 CMs now, or will be one of them in 2018. Its a friendly. No one is talking about throwing him into a full 90' vs Czech Rep. Why not bring him into camp. See what it takes to be a full international player. Let him watch the game from the sideline to get coaches and players points of view and learn valuable lessons. It also lets other young guys know that if they put in the time and get themselves to be first team players they'll start getting looks instead of the old style of you pretty much had to be 25+ to get a sniff of US action.

A lot of us folk here get really worried given our track record with young talent combined with young call-ups. Perhaps it's a myth. But it worries me even though I love seeing new talent come in.
