Your USMNT Fire Will Be Rekindled After Watching These Brilliant Player Profiles

The RISING series from U.S. Soccer is an awesome look at the young professionals who’re the future of the USMNT.

If you say it now, you say it without a tone of mockery and without the ability to harvest likes through shit posting: The USMNT is in contention for the World Cup.

The road to Qatar begins in September with six high profile friendlies over the course of 74 days. It shouldn’t be difficult to get excited about tests against Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, England and Italy, but if you’re still having trouble buying into the new cycle, U.S. Soccer is here to help with a beautifully produced series profiling America’s new generation.

Christian Pulisic (19), Tyler Adams (19), Weston McKennie (19), Matt Miazga (22), Josh Sargent (18), Cristian Roldan (23), Zack Steffen (23), Kellyn Acosta (22), Cameron Carter-Vickers (20), Tim Weah (18) and DeAndre Yedlin (25) each take turns discussing their personal journeys from childhood to the pros, culminating in their selection to represent the USMNT. 

We’ve compiled some of the videos below, but first, here’s one minute of Pulisic balling as a child (so really only a few years ago).
