Excited to see some new blood getting tested. Love that the friendliest are occurring every few weeks/month or so over the next 2-3 months, against decent competition as well. I think we'll see a lot of friendliest on European soil in the run up to 2018, something that, IMO, we didn't do enough of in the past.

Ditto, very excited to see some young blood on the pitch for USMNT. There will be a lot of holes to fill for 2018 and I look forward to a couple of these ‘kids’ stepping up.
I expect that the Ecuador game at the Rent will be a couple of vets on-hand for Donovan’s send-off and a lot of young blood from MLS rosters. Now, if I can just talk my wife into letting me go to that one especially as the Outlaws have $34 tickets.

Pretty decent, experienced Defenders. Pretty young midfield and forwards. Hope some of the new blood actually gets on the field. It's always interesting at the start of a new cycle with new faces.
