The core of the United States men’s national team plays in Europe’s top tier leagues and they were able to beat Mexico 3-2 and win the CONCACAF Nations League trophy earlier this month. This was the first title for the USMNT since winning the 2017 Gold Cup tournament.

Many consider this United States national team to be the ‘golden generation’ after many of their players had a breakout season with their respective European clubs. Christian Pulisic is the leader of this team and he became the first American to win the UEFA Champions League after Chelsea beat Manchester City 1-0 in the final last month.

Other players like Sergiño Dest (FC Barcelona) and Weston McKennie (Juventus), have become fundamental for the USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter since taking over the managerial job in 2018. According to stats from Transfermarkt, the United States starting XI costs more than $246 million.
