Leeds star to beat Christian Pulisic to United States World Cup captaincy role

An altogether significant insight into the plans of United States head coach Gregg Berhalter for his side’s World Cup campaign has been forthcoming late on Saturday night.

This comes amid claims that the US’ captain and leader, until now undecided upon, has finally been selected to lead the nation’s charge in Qatar.

As per a host of sources online, Tyler Adams will don the armband for the Stars and Stripes over the weeks to come.

A team vote took place this week, which saw the subject of captaincy put to each and every member of Gregg Berhalter’s squad.

And, in the end, it was Leeds United summer addition Adams who beat out competition from the likes of Christian Pulisic and Walker Zimmerman to be honoured with the role.

The all-action midfielder, at just 23 years of age, is therefore in line to lead his side out for their World Cup opener against Wales on Monday, before doing likewise for ensuing group stage meetings with both England and Iran, too.
