If you’re looking for the charismatic face of the U.S. men’s national team, look no further than Weston McKennie. Along with Christian Pulisic and Tyler Adams, McKennie was one of the first members of this young generation of American players to move over to Europe. He moved from the United States to Schalke in 2016 and from Schalke to Juventus in 2020. With his entertaining antics in training and his willingness to tell an Italian straight to their face to put ranch on pizza, McKennie is worth following. He’s also extremely useful on the field with his late-arriving runs into the box, aerial ability, and his creativity.
