Interim United States men’s national team head coach Anthony Hudson excited fans with an interesting roster selection for the March international window. A mix of usual starters and fringe players has fans eager to see how the team will lineup.

The USMNT have two Concacaf Nations League games to play with a trip to Grenada on March 24 and a home game in Orlando, Florida, vs. El Salvador on March 27.

Here’s a reminder of the 24 U.S. players selected for the pair of games.

Chelsea did the unthinkable on Saturday and actually won a game. The Blues defeated Leeds United 1-0 with center back Wesley Fofana scoring the game’s lone goal.

Fofana had another highlight — or lowlight in this case — during the game when he took out a steward on the sideline after receiving a shove from Leeds forward Wilfried Gnoto.

Leeds United States of America have won a game. Thank goodness. Leeds defeated Southampton 1-0 on Saturday in what was a battle between the two teams bottom of the Premier League.

American fans will be pleased with new Spanish manager Javi Garcia. In his first game in charge Garcia started all three American players (Tyler Adams, Weston McKennie and Brenden Aaronson). This was the first time the trio of USMNT players have started for Leeds together.

‘Stop trying to be a hard a** and pass the ball’ — Alexi Lalas tears into Adams and McKennie

Polarizing soccer pundit Alexi Lalas ruffled feathers in the USMNT sphere after sharing his opinion about the midfield duo of Tyler Adams and Weston McKennie. Lalas doesn’t seem to be a fan of their physical approach in the Premier League.

Adams and McKennie have only played four EPL games together at Leeds United and have already earned a name for themselves. We at The18 refer to them as the ‘Premier League Bad Boys’ due to their hard tackles and how they never back down from a fight.

Tyler Adams and Weston McKennie throw Everton’s Dwight McNeil into ad boards during skirmish

Tyler Adams and Weston McKennie don’t play around. The American duo is quickly becoming the most ruthless and brutal midfield pair in the Premier League. The latest Leeds Everton fight during Saturday’s EPL meeting was another example of this.

This sport is batshit crazy and I love it.
