Soccer By Ives at related • 2 views

Entering Tuesday's friendly, much of the focus was on the U.S. Men's National Team's young European-based stars, and for good reason. The roster was littered with talented young prospects plying their trade at noteworthy European clubs.

But, when the final whistle sounded on Tuesday night, it was a trio of MLS regulars that stood out as the biggest key to victory.

Dave Sarachan's job is a complicated one. As the U.S. Men's National Team's caretaker head coach, he's preparing a team for a future without him. His job is to integrate new faces to a national team that will look very, very different when he is inevitably replaced.

According to the Washington Post, U.S. Soccer has extended Sarachan's contract as interim coach through the end of June.

Forward position comes into focus as USMNT heads towards camp

For the U.S. Men's National Team, position battles will be the norm for the next several years. It's a consequence of missing the World Cup. New faces come in, older faces are ushered out and the status quo is changed over a period of time as young stars are integrated.

There is perhaps no position quite as open as the forward position, though, and several youngsters will have the chance to stake their claim in an upcoming friendly against Paraguay.
