In One play


Yunus Musah glides. When you watch Musah play, one of the first things you’ll notice is how much he loves to knife right through central midfield. With his mixture of strength and technical ability, Musah avoids defensive pressure, reliably moves the ball from Point A to Point B, and creates space and opportunities for the players around him. Musah, who was eligible to represent a number of other countries at the international level, decided to play for the U.S. after playing for England at various youth levels.
