Now, let’s take a look at some of the best players who will be on show throughout the U.S. in the next few weeks, as we rank the top 10 players at the Gold Cup.
Of course, these kind of lists always have a healthy dose of subjectivity within them, and when it comes to the creme de la cream of CONCACAF, there will also be a healthy number of players from the U.S., Mexico and Costa Rica.
This list is no different as three USMNT stars, three from Mexico, three from Costa Rica and one from Honduras make up our top 10. While there is more of a mixture in the “honorable mentions” section where a further 20 players are listed.
