Players to Watch

Trevor Amann (Sacramento Republic FC)

Amann is a typical fox-in-the-box striker, but he have a good work ethic and presses very intensely without the ball. Trevor is also really good at winning ground and Ariel duels, he leads his team very well from the front. He can also be very lethal at the counter-attacks as well, as a striker he is perfect for Sacramento and will be a big threat to San Jose.

Amahl Pellegrino (San Jose Earthquakes)

He is a really good dribbler, he easily gets past defenders and takes a lot of of shots from outside the box. He is a bit selfish player in front of the goal and scores a decent amount of goals. Amahl also creates a lot of chances for his teammates and his stats are impressive as well. He will be a threat to the opposition team for sure.
