Here is my list of CB's that will be in the USMNT pool after 2014.

1. Cameron- He will be 32 going on 33 for the 2018 WC which is still a good age for a CB. I would expect him to continue to start for the USMNT after the 2014 WC. He will be the vet.
2. Gonzo- He will be pushed by others for the starting position. 29 in 2018
3. Brooks- I personally think he will displace Gonzo after 2014. 25 in 2018
4. Hines- He will be pushing for a starting spot as well. 30 in 2018
5. Berry- I like his chances. 29 in 2018
6. Besler- He will be pushing as well. 31 in 2018
7. Hedges- 28 in 2018
8. Schuler- 30 in 2018
9. Ream- 30 in 2018
10. John- 31 in 2018
11. Boss- 27 in 2018
12. Meyer- 28 in 2018
13. Packwood- 25 in 2018
14. Zimmerman- 25 in 2018
15. Opara- 29 in 2018

Thats actually a really stacked and talented CB pool of players.

I don't think Okugo will stay at CB hence why I am not projecting him at CB.

There are so many things that could happen by then and so many youngsters that could jump into the picture. This is by far the most fluid depth chart we have. I shall just list my top 4:

1) Cam
2) Brooks/Gonzo
3) *2
4) Hines

I think Sean Cunningham will be in the picture at some point, probably right above Ream.

I want to see Boss perform well for a few seasons before really putting him ahead of others. He is young, and still has time to fulfill his potential.

I think you need to put in an application to MLS or US soccer. Thats your calling so just drop out of school while you still can !!!!!

Cunningham has a long way to go before he is even considered in the top10. Not to mention that most of his playing time is at lb right now.

At the least i see Boss on the bench in 2018, hope he makes the best of his tfc move, consistent play would be best for him.

Bright Dike (best name ever???) scored a goal for Nigeria's national team in a friendly today. 2 years ago he was playing in USL. Nigeria isn't a slouch of a national team. Just because you played in USL doesn't mean you wont amount to anything.


The next test for the Dooley-led revitalization of the Philippine national team kicks off soon.
