Here at World Soccer Talk, we will continue to take the lead by identifying the new generation of candidates for soccer television commentary positions on major national television networks in the United States, with particular emphasis on English-language broadcasts.

In March 2013, we identified John Strong as the best home-grown English-language soccer play-by-play commentator and we voiced our opinion to FOX Sports President and COO Eric Shanks, who had assigned Gus Johnson to the number one soccer play-by-play position instead.

If my eyes do not deceive me, we get Ream in for Brooks (as some of you guessed), Zusi in for Cameron (oi vey) and Jones in for Lletget. So is this the same set as Friday, or does Jones slide Pulisic wide, giving us a 4-2-3-1 or an empty bucket? We shall see. Three points is nice, but how about we #Get3More?

At last, we reach the left wing. This is the end point, be sure to de-board the train. Christian PulisicSebastian LletgetJulian Green In a rather short time, Pulisic has become an obvious starter for this team. Lletget showed in the recent friendlies that he can push up the flank. Green is the emergency bench killer, though I'd probably be more inclined to turn to Arriola or Zusi first at this

The USMNT is bringing a large contingent into camp ahead of the CONACAF hex opener against Mexico in Columbus. One can't complain too much, I suppose, but the inclusion of Stanko over Williams or Kitchen is rather curious. Meanwhile, Cameron's absence allows Carter-Vickers to pursue his first cap (not hat it seems likely during these two games).
