USWNT forward Megan Rapinoe insists that Christian Pulisic and Weston McKennie are players to watch, but the World Cup trophy is still years away for the US men’s national team.
Rapinoe, who has twice won the FIFA World Cup after lifting the trophy with USWNT in 2015 and 2019, explained that every member of the men’s team must play in top leagues to improve the national team.
“I think we are definitely our starting eleven or the majority of our starting eleven are one of the best players in their team away. And I think we are not there. Obviously, Christian, he is a superstar, lots of talent. When he is fit and healthy on the pitch, he’s off. He’s fantastic. I think Weston has that too. So does Zach. He’s in a bit of a tough position as a goalkeeper, but I think he can still do his thing and be dominant in it. the way.
“Sergiño as well, as you mentioned the other day. I think that until we have all our players as one of the best players on one … They do not have to be in the top teams, but in a top team in a top league, I think that’s how far away we are. . “Because you watch Belgium or France or England, all these top teams, it’s tough,” she said at 90min’s Football Americana.
The USWNT forward added that the men’s team is going through the necessary “growth period” at the moment.
“And I think we’re in this growth period. It’s really exciting because we’re obviously seeing a lot more of our players in Europe and playing consistently and starting and doing all that. But I think that’s how I would say it. Because I think we have a couple of these players right now and we’re almost trying to play to their level, when I think we have to play to the core level of the team and then let Christian be special or let Weston be special or let these other players be special.

“Everyone can not be special because they do not have that ability. And it’s difficult because you obviously have to build it and try and you have to fight to reach the level, and I think that’s a bit where they are. But I think we all are our best players because we are one of the best players on their team away.I’m thinking of at least another 15 years.I need to see our young, young, young players be in Europe already.I think that’s the only way. ”
