Played the full 90 in a 2-2 tie with AZ. Read a few reports that do not mention his name, so he couldn't have done that bad

Hopefully he'll remain in the starting XI going forward. Would love to see Miazga & CCV raise themselves to a level where they're going to be competing for a Sr. US roster spot.
They are not far off now, and may actually be better technically, but they need the game experience to overtake the veterans currently positioned as backups (Gonzalez, Birnbaum & Besler).

Van der Werff is looking at a long term knee injury so Miazga should get some decent run the rest of the season. You'd have to imagine that unless he plays poorly he's looking at the starting role week in and week out. We should get to see how he's developed in the last 18 months and get a good idea of how he compares to Omar, Besler, Birnbaum in the pecking order.

Klinsmann: Miazga is a 'huge prospect that we have'; we're waiting for him to take a starting role at Vitesse #CFC

Hah, code for, if this guys gets 10 games in a row for Vittese, he's our new starting CB with JAB.

And I'm sticking Cameron at CDM

Well, ... that last statement I made up.

Works for me. The "problem" with Cameron at DM is that it would work best as a diamond with Kljestan (or another creating midfielder) at the top and Bradley on the bench.

It would work well in a 4-3-3 as well. Williams/Nagbe on the left of Geoff with Bradley on the right. Push Pulisic to the forward line with Wood (centrally) and Gooch/Zardes wide right.

I like Miazga a lot and he is a future cornerstone of the team, potentially better than Brooks in my opinion. But let's just chill here. Winning international soccer is about experience and so Cameron will start next to Brooks and Miazga will earn his spot. Yes, if he plays every week I see no reason why Miazga shouldn't be ahead of Gonzalez and Birnbaum as a backup, but until next summer I just don't see where he fits in the full national team as a starter. Unless Cameron implodes vs Mexico and at Costa Rica, the RCB spot is his to keep. Although in my opinion there can be a case made for a Besler-Brooks-Miazga-Cameron backline...

I disagree partially. Winning in international soccer is about talent more than experience. No matter how much experience wondo, becks, zusi, bedoya, kitchen have, they are useless without talent, more talent than opponent.

That's fine with keeping Cameron at RCB

I just don't want to hear about people complaining about Cameron being played out of position. Because his position now is CDM. For club.

We put "talent" on display at the last Gold Cup- how'd that work?

What about CCV? Where do you folks think he fits? And when?

As soon as he gets playing time, he's going to get consistent callups to the Nats. Not sure if he's getting called into camps for the Mexico and Costa Rica qualifier w/o so much as breaking through at Tot.

if/when he becomes a reliable starter int he EPl, have to imagine he leapfrogs everyone aside from Cameron (geoff). And then it'll come down to where Cameron (geofF) is playing consistently for Stoke. And how his performances for us have been.

Klins has shown, for important games, he's very reluctant to mix it up. Hams is correct. Cameron is starting at RCB unless he's injured. It doesn't matter how many games or how well Miazga plays before Mexico.

CCV & Miazga are roughly in the same situation when it comes to the USMNT. They are both raising through the ranks quickly. They are basically knocking on the door of the back-up center backs (Besler & Birnbaum/Gonzalez). Miazga is marginally closer due to his beginning to see consistent playing time, but CCV isn't to far behind considering the clubs he's with.

I imagine that Miazga, if he continues to get club minutes, will begin getting call-ups to the USMNT in the first half of 2017. He has more raw talent than Birnbaum & Gonzalez with higher potential.

I imagine that CCV will likely remain with the youth teams through the 2017 U-20 WC so long as Tot will consent to his release. Once Tot denies the release for youth competitions or the U-20 WC ends he'll be in competition for a call-up.
