Yunus Musah was every @USMNT
Bad news Costa Rica.
Aaronson, Adams, McKennie, Musah, Weah, Hoppe & Pepi woke up today.
Worse news: some of them might even play tonight.
With 18-year-olds Yunus Musah and Ricardo Pepi in the lineup, two teenagers will start for the #USMNT for a fourth-straight match.
Yunus Musah is quite the player. Glad to see a Hale End boy doing well.
Feel good about 35 minutes of that half from @USMNT
. Good response to an awful start and really pushed the game and looked dangerous. Musah, Adams, M. Robinson, Dest, Aaronson good first halves
🇺🇸 Yunus Musah v. Costa Rica (1st half)

Superb 🌟 https://t.co/y69nOzzYcs
Yunus Musah should be a lock starter with the USMNT
Chris Richards making his World Cup qualifying debut. Steffen in for Matt Turner — which is a choice.
All the big guns back in. Musah and Arriola in the XI for a third straight game.
Average age: 22 years, 229 days, the youngest USMNT in a World Cup qualifying match. https://t.co/GwlJrlTyRr
Remember how the #USMNT midfield completed 11 passes to each other in the first half in Panama?
Adams, McKennie and Musah completed 33 passes to each other in the first half tonight.
Yunus Musah looks like he plays soccer on easy mode. He’s so fun to watch.
Musah is press resistant, just got out of a 3-man press pretty well.
I'll go a step further:
The midfield trio of McKennie-Musah-Adams should *all* be lock starters for the USMNT. https://t.co/ydLFDOulHG
My only tweet for the night is a request for youth midfielders everywhere: Please watch the triangle of Adams, McKennie and Musah. They have been magnificent.
Yunus Musah: So damn good
Musah reminds me so much of Gini Wijnaldum. He’s so good in tight spaces and wants to get forward. Gini is more technical and obviously a much higher level. I look forward to seeing his progression as he gets more tactically aware and stronger. Just an exciting player
Is Yunus Musah the best #USMNT player?
Yes, McKennie has given the ball away a few times lol. Basically, the original meaning to the first tweet was: watch Yunus Musah lol.
This is the sort of game where I’d like to see CP or Reyna play at the 10. Let’s Mckennie and one of Adams/Musah play the 6 and 8 and reallyyyy put the pressure on.
Hoppe and Busio... for Weah and Pepi is my guess.. Move Musah wide more
Musah especially. He is so, so good.
So, this #USMNT is not a finished product, and doesn’t have much time to get there.
But … skill wise? They’re regularly completing passes that previous teams wouldn’t have seen, let alone tried. Dest, Musah blowing past defenders. Put it all together and man, could this be fun.
Mckennie and Musah playing together is some of the best midfield soccer I’ve ever seen from USMNT
Musah and Aaronson really clicking. #wavelength #USMNT
This isn't true. Mckennie is breaking the lines with his passes and spreading out the blocks of 8 with his diagonal and cross field passes. Musah is breaking the lines by driving through any gaps created. They are good complement to one another.
Would like to see him come in for Musah and see how he links with Adams and McKennie but that’s probably too hopeful lol.
The difference in style & skill between Musah and McKinnie is fascinating.
Yunus Musah. What a player. #usmnt
