4—Fabian Johnson
Johnson has quickly become a fixture in the starting 11 for both the USMNT and his club in the German Bundesliga, Hoffenheim.

Johnson is still very young at only 24-years-old, and is versatile. He can play as an outside back, a winger and an attacking midfielder. He will be one of the key players for the USMNT for years to come.

3—Michael Bradley
For years, many USMNT fans unfairly criticized Michael Bradley’s inclusion in the national team set-up as nepotism because his father was manager.

Despite unfair criticism, Bradley has removed any doubt among any lingering haters with his play for club and country over the past year.

After a failed loan stint with Aston Villa, Bradley turned a solid season at Chievo Verona in Serie A into a move to Italian powerhouse Roma where he looks to become a consistent contributor to a powerful midfield.

For the USMNT, Bradley has emerged as the team’s deep-lying playmaker, particularly impressive in his passing in this summer’s friendly against Brazil.

2—Tim Howard
It wouldn’t be a USMNT game without the crowd chanting “Tim-my Howard!” after yet another big save.

A hero of the USMNT and Everton in the EPL for the last half decade, Howard’s ability to make brilliant saves keeps both the U.S. and Everton in games against superior opponents.

With the USMNT, Howard always gives the U.S. a chance to win and has been the rock of a defense that has undergone a lot of changes and experimentation over the past few years.

Dempsey’s 23 goals for Fulham last season were part of the most prolific season ever enjoyed by a U.S. international in England and, prior to his ugly transfer saga this fall, made him a fan-favorite at Craven Cottage.

Dempsey has also been the most consistent goal scorer for the USMNT over the past year-and-a-half. His 28 international goals place him at fourth position in the list of highest goal scorer of all time for the USMNT. He only needs two more goals to catch fellow Fulham and USMNT legend Brian McBride and only six more goals to catch USMNT legend Eric Wynalda.
