Nice selection there Brian. However, I think that Kemar Lawrence is a left-back and you have him at right-back. Atiba Hutchinson is 37 now, but yeah at his peak he was really good. I preferred Reyna ahead of Pulisic in the attacking midfield role because Reyna has been a excellent when he has played for Dortmund this season(and huge things are expected of him), while Pulisic has had a mixed season at Chelsea. Also Reyna's preferred position is the attacking midfield role, while Pulisic's best position is out on the wing. I knew someone might include Lozano as well, but again, he's really struggled at club level this season. But all in all, I think that if all the players in your team were playing at their peak abilities, then it would indeed be a formidable side.

PS. I am surprised that you didn't at least have Reyna and Herrera on the bench. In fact I am surprised that you didn't even name a single American or Mexican on your bench, given the number of talented players those two countries have.

I could have sworn he was a RB.

Napoli is my team in Europe and yeah Lozano has been underwhelming but it's his first season in a top 5 league and I'm willing to give his season a pass. If he fails next season then it might be time to question his talent.

And as for the bench, I went for something different. But in truth I forgot about Reyna and I have barely seen Herrera outside of the national team.

No, Kemar Lawrence is definitely a left-back. Fair enough about the teenager  Reyna, but Hererra plays for Atletico Madrid and used to be formidable at Porto over the last few seasons. I would have thought that you watched the Spanish and Portuguese leagues. Either way, I think these all star sides that we selected would be a match for the best of sides. Which I suppose kind of demonstrates the improvement in quality of the players that the region now produces.
