Why you should back USMNT
On a team with very little experience, the Americans do have a centerback pairing with experience in Miles Robinson and James Sands. The 26-year-old Robinson leads the team in appearances (27) and was considered one of the USMNT's top centerbacks before tearing his left Achilles tendon in May 2022, keeping him out of the World Cup that year. Meanwhile Sands, 23, has made 13 appearances with the USMNT, with several of those coming with the A team.
In addition, Caleb Wiley is coming off a breakout season for Atlanta United. The 19-year-old left back set career-highs in appearances (30), starts (28), goals (four) and assists (four) during the MLS regular season and added an assist in the MLS Cup Playoffs. He enters Saturday's match with only one previous USMNT appearance. See which team to pick here.
Why you should back Slovenia
The Slovenians will face a very young and inexperienced USMNT team. Fifteen of the 25 players roster are on their first call-ups to a USMNT camp. The average age of the Americans is 23 years, 323 days. In addition, because the entire roster is MLS players, none of them are currently in form.
In addition, Slovenia enter Saturday's match on a bit of a roll. Over their last six matches, Slovenia are 5-1 and have outscored their opponents, 15-4. The run includes two wins over Northern Ireland and victories over San Marino, Finland and Kazakhstan. The only loss in that stretch came at Denmark. See which team to pick here.
