Jordan Morris joins his best friend. Clint Dempsey is not on the initial release, but can be added in the knockout round.

As expected, the United States Gold Cup roster is mostly younger MLS players. Both Jordan Morris and Cristian Roldan earned the nod from Bruce Arena. It will be Roldan's first opportunity to wear the red, white and blue with the senior side.

Clint Dempsey had a good match, but the same can't be said for most of his teammates.

It's OK to play badly sometimes. Rough games happen. For whatever reason, this Seattle Sounders team is either much worse than everyone thought, or they are vastly underperforming. I tend to think it's the latter, but Saturday night was a pretty big vote for the former.

Despite the relatively slow start, the Sounders' leading goalscorer is pleased with his team's progress.

The start to the 2017 MLS season might not have gone as well for the Seattle Sounders as they would have liked, but there have already been plenty of positives. Chief among those is the return of Clint Dempsey from his irregular heartbeat issue; he's played in all seven of the team's matches thus far.

Their slow start to 2017 is nothing to get worked up about.

It doesn't take a tactical genius or a statistical whiz to suss out that the Seattle Sounders play really well when Nicolas Lodeiro and Clint Dempsey are on the field together. One need only look at the four times they suited up together last year to see what the fully operational battle station looks like.

SEATTLE — Even with a makeshift backline and Clint Dempsey starting on the bench, the Seattle Sounders probably went to bed following Friday's game feeling as though they dropped two points rather than won one. The reasons aren't difficult to suss out.

Experts all seem to think the USMNT is ready for Jorstian Mordan.

If notable national team observers are to be believed, the United States is about to get a healthy dose of Jorstian Mordan during the upcoming CONCACAF Gold Cup. In fact, it would have to be considered a genuine shock if both Cristian Roldan and Jordan Morris weren't called up together given that all six sites we surveyed predicted just that.

The most recent of those came on Friday, capping off his second international hat trick in the United States' 6-0 win over Honduras.

He's also the oldest player to get one in the final round of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying.

Clint Dempsey's second career United States hat trick was possibly the most impressive he's ever scored for club or country. Consider that it came in a must-win match, after a more than seven-month national team hiatus, didn't require a penalty and featured two goals that were as impressive as any he's scored for the red, white and blue.
