Berhalter called up 26 players for the first three World Cup qualifiers of the 2022 cycle. The time has come! We discuss the selections (mostly pleased) and spend quite a bit of time trying to figure out how to rotate for three games in seven days. There will be lots of tough choices and on-the-fly conundrums but from the comfort of our desks in Mi…
