As much as I'd like to see Payne brought in to the nats, I don't see it happening for the Qualies or Copa.

It will be all business for the Qualies...guys that JK knows he can absolutely count on to get results...especially away at Guat.

Same thing for the Copa, although I do think Miazga has a chance to make the roster.

I think JK and Herzog are going to call in every marker they have to pull together the best roster for the Colombia games. IMO they are going to invest a lot of time and energy to make the Olympics. So I'm hoping to see some pretty heavy talent - Brooks, Miazga, Yedlin, Payne, Morris, Pulisic.

It will interesting to see how Pelosi and Alashe might factor in since they were still recovering from injuries at the start of the January camp.

I can see us going down to Colombia with a very athletic defensive team...perfect scenario for a destroyer like Alashe.

I think Jurgen or someone with USSF pretty much confirmed Yedlin and Brooks will not be in the March Olympic playoffs.

JK said something to the effect.
Morris was up in the air.
I have no doubts that JK and Herzog's preference would be for Pulisic, Horvath, Payne, Acosta, Keiswetter, Miazga, CCV, etc to be with the U-23's in March. I'm just not sure how many will be released.

Yedlin and Brooks are not looked on as U23 players for the US. They are first team guys for sure. I think Morris was up in the air, but I think after the January Camp that he will be upgraded to definitely First team.

Of the rest of those I think JK will want a look at Pulisic, Horvath, Payne/Acosta (not both), and Miazga for the First team IF they do not get released. My guess is Pulisic, Horvath, and Miazga are not released for the Olympic Qualification. The rest are.

I think Miazga would have been had it not been for the Zouma injury. But they are just way to short at CB right now to release him for the Olympics.

The only way any of those guys get released is if JK tells the clubs look if you don't release them for the Olympic then we will call them up for the WCQ.

He is transferring to Excellsior. They are another mid table Eredivise team. Hopefully he gets consistent minutes and can start to develop into a viable option when the fullback injuries strike
