Pulisic, Long, Bradley named to Gold Cup Best XI

A trio of U.S. Men’s National Team players were named to the Concacaf Gold Cup Best XI.

Christian Pulisic, Aaron Long, and Michael Bradley were the three players from Gregg Berhalter’s squad named to the tournament’s best 11. Pulisic was also named the Best Young Player of the Gold Cup, scoring three goals and adding three assists.

The USMNT fell short in its hopes of repeating as Gold Cup champs, losing 1-0 to Mexico in Sunday’s final.

Long put in a strong tournament in the USMNT’s backline, while Bradley remained a key veteran presence for the side.

Mexico had seven players named to the Best XI including forward Raul Jimenez, midfielder Andres Guardado, and goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa.

The final player named was Canada forward Jonathan David, who finished with six goals in four appearances.


  1. I think Mexico got way too much respect in the best 11 and this is a shot at the rest of the teams in the tourney

    • It is clear from past posts Bizzy dislikes one-eyed people. That does not keep them from seeing more than Bizzy can.

      • Complimenting Bradley for being better than USL and third world league players is nothing to be “excited” about. He should be “better than the blind” if he is taking up space in the midfield for the USMNT and preventing growth of our group of young players. Hope this is his last failure…..if not then get ready for a new coach soon hahaha

    • @bizzy. But he also beat out players like McKennie, Bailey, Bryan Ruiz, Hutchinson. Do they all play in USL?!
